```Hi Richard and all,

I must admit that this problem gave me some problems.
As always, there is more than one choice, and I had a harder time for some
reason determining which one would be the best move.
So whether or not I am right, I will be looking forward to Paul's analysis.

This is what I think the best move scenario is:

1. Nxd6  Nxd6
2.   Qxc6 threatening Blacks bishop
Black could respond with one of a few different moves, then white would,
3. Qxd6  Qxd6
4. Rxd6

White ultimately winning the exchange.

Chris
