Re: And then, there was 1.

When you say that they are wrong, do you mean that the positions are wrong (e.g. incorrectly transcribed), the solutions are wrong, or both or neither or? The solutions are wrong. Nolot.9 the bm Ng5 is not winning: 1.Ng5!! hxg5 2.hxg5! Rfc8! leads to Draw Nolot.6 the bm ...axb5 is not winning: 13.....

Re: Test position, Queen sac, that appears to be winning!
