    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?

    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

    Overly long - the basic idea here is to remove the queen for a back rank mate with the rook slingshot...

    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!
