Hi All I'm still reluctent to sacrifice my lady first but every time I see a queen in a puzzle it's nearly always thats the first move
With the holiday season over, chess.com announces a return to the standard 'Trash the queen' daily puzzle format.
For newcomers to the daily puzzle, we can reduce this program to 3 easy steps!

Very good puzzle.
that was good, but easy
Good Queen sac.
