    What about Nf4 ch? opening the file for the h-rook and making the diagonal h3 -> c8
    of the Dowager more effective?

    I'd play ...Kf7, but then I've been retired for so long I've probably got it wrong.
    Still searching for Bobby Fischer....

    Correct. Its not hard to see if its given as a ''puzzle'' but in a practical game would be tricky

    Sadly this is another example where the startling combination isn't the best move; it's all very well if white goes queen-grabbing, but what if he does not? Still very well worth knowing such things are even possible.
