Why couldn't you keep the queen and try with Ne7?
jogd in #171 proposes as a solution to the daily puzzle:
1. Ne7+ Kf8, 2Nxc6
That does put white a knight ahead, but black immediately responds with 2. ... Qxe4, and white's advantage is very slight.
Better to capture the knight and force a queens trade.
In the Beltran vs Marin game (posted by abo_tamem_2012 in#161, white could have extended it longer, but not prevented the checkmate:
1. ... exf3,2. Rg1 Qxe2,3. Qf1 f2+4. Qg2 Bxg2+ (4. Rg2 Qxf1#)5. Rxg2 f1=Q+ (5.Kxg2 f1=Q++, 6. Kh1 Qeg2#)6. Rg1 Qeg2#
yea yea easy as cake

Why not Ke7+ ? K black can't take because Qxe8# If Qxe7 then Qxc6 and black are oblige to defend and in the same time white defends e4.
1.Ne7+ Qxe7 2.Qxc6 g6 and how exactly is white winning?
