    At least the tradition of Q sacs is still continued.

    Very neat mate in 4 - somewhat like today's puzzle.

    The temptation is 1. Qxb4 leaving white with a queen and 2 rooks (stacked) vs. a single rook, but giving a black a tempo to prepare an escape square.  White's victory is assured barring blunders (such as allowing a stalemate), but black can continue another ten moves or so.
