Dificil de resolver para mi!!!!
The Ice Queen is Supreme!
Difficult yet Pretty!
very difficult for me -- and therefore an excellent tactics training exercise
I don't get it. I'm not a great chess player. Why wouldn't the black queen or rook take one of the many opportunities he had to take the white queen?
wwwoooww hard my brain......
nice one, got stuck on the a4, other than that I knew it was a queen chase, until it is a have to take the queen move... :)
Why can't black go rook c1? I feel like that would solve the problem. White has no forced mate from here and the puzzle is broken down.
edit: wait the knight protects so black loses queen
good 1.. i missed the last two moves..

very nice field of war
whoa, did you get the license of that truck that just hit me? That was a great puzzle......wow, wow, wow!
really tough puzzle...good mental gymnastics!
Overly long - the basic idea here is to remove the queen for a back rank mate with the rook slingshot...
I got it. That was cool.
I found the first move quite fast, but after 1. ... Qb5, I meant to follow up with 2. a4.
It seemed like a win since the Black Queen is out of squares to cover e8 - but now I see 2...Qxe2!! and it's White who will be mated on the back rank: 3. Rxe2 Rc1+ and the game is over. So I have to give it to Adams, he played it brilliantly!
very nice puzzle
