    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!

    1. Carefully study the puzzle.

    2. Determine the move that will guarantee the sudden and instant demise of the white queen.

    3. With the removal of this frivolous and basicly pointless white piece, the winning combination will now absurdly and quickly obvious.
