I dunno about inconspicuous, if I'm playing a decent opponent and he hangs his queen out there like that, I'm gonna assume it wasn't a blunder, and be sure to take a closer look at what's about to happen. Plus, what if White plays 2. Qb3 in response? Could still guard d1 that way it seems, though I didn't look deep into any of the lines to see what eventually comes of it.
queen takes bishop check, with mate to follow. Not having looked at it that closely, I think moving a pawn to give the white king space to escape is the option that delays the end for the longest.
That certainly is one of white's better options - and one which I overlooked in my earlier post.
1. ... Qc6, 2. g3 ( or maybe 2.h3, but I like my king at g2, even when my bishop is on black squares)I would follow with 2. ... Qxa4, but after that there are many variations in which white wins, but not right away.
I stared at it for 5 minutes and then it clicked. Beautifully done.
losers . . .
yeah i find that move
Must be tired did'nt see it straight away.
White King: '' AAHHHHHH!!! Vortex at white side! Vortex at white side!!!!!!!!!"
