Hi there,
am currently going through the blokh and wondering if anyone knows of a list of any mistakes? I'm probably totally wrong about these but.. at the risk of embarrassing myself.......... here you go:

For example, # 19: Answer given is Rd3, but what about Rxe4, Rxd1+, Rxd1 and then the queen can't capture the other rook back in view of Rxd7+, KxR, Knight fork...

Or.. .#6, he gives Nf5, Qe8, Knight fork... but what about Nf5, Qe6, Bxe4, Qxe4, Nd6, Qg4?! threatening the Nf3..

#19 White wins (Difficulty 2)

1. Rxe4! Qxe4 2. Qxd7+ Kxd7 3. Nc5+ Kc8 4. Nxe4 wins a piece

#19 Black wins (Difficulty 8)

1...Rd3! 2. Qxd3 Rxe1+ 3.Rxe1 Qxd3 wins the queen

Seems OK to me!

haha stupid brain! thanks:)

The problems are above Igor, just wait for them to load... prepare yourself for a humorous diagonal rook-check I invented... (I put the text in white, highlight it if you want to read it..)

Sorry, forgot about the white text.
#6:
1.Nf5 Qe6 2.Bxe4 Qxe4 3.Nd6 Qg4 4.Nxb7 followed by Qxd5+ if necessary (winning rook after 4...Rxf3 or knight d7 after 4...hxg5)
3...Qe6 is better. Still after 4.Nxb7 hxg5 5.hxg5 followed by 6.Qxd5 white is two pawns up.

mm yeah- how about that same move order but rather than Rxf3 or hxg5: Bxg5... evening out material and still threatening the knight on f3...

Nf5, Qe6, Bxe4, Qxe4, Nd6, Qg4, Nxd7, Bxg5: ......
white is a pawn up I suppose after Qxd5, Kh8, oh... actually he's not.. Knight moves, Bxh5 with an awful position!

1.Nf5 Qe6 2.Bxe4 Qxe4 3.Nd6 Qg4 4.Nxb7 Bxg5 5.Qxd5+ Kh8 6.Nh2 (attacking queen) and 7.hxg5 +-

There are a few errors in this book. But not as many compared to other tactical manuals.
