Jun-12-06  JustAFish: Black's 20th move would make a great Wednesday puzzle! What a great move and a great mate!
Nov-17-06  netlava: I agree it would make a great Thursday puzzle.

  Honza Cervenka: <Notagm: Why not 18. Nxd4?> Because then black plays simply 18...Qh4, and if 19.g3 to stop threatening mate on f2, then 19...Qh3+ 20.Kg1 Re1+ with mate.
