    Nice puzzle, I'm impressed by the queen endgame that I had not understood till I read some comments. Kind of thing I should practice.

    I dont understand why white even waited to take the black queen, as well as why the king didnt take the other pawn???

    One nice point no one yet mentioned is that h8=B (to avoid the stalemate) also doesn't work because a1=Q BxQ and black has a drawn position despite white's extra bishop.

    as to those who wonder why did black not take on b6, well if black takes on b6 he has no stale mate hopes anymore and white's pawn simply wins the race.

    May I suggest you either (a) read the thread or (b) give up chess?

    Good one... need to look long..

    for so many whys on queens movement: a. taking black queen in the early part forces staelemate; b. its an actual chess magazine moves: not necessarily very calculated, can have some times little steps!

    Sorry, but I feel there is a mistake in Black's final move. I think Qf4 is a legitimate move that prevents the checkmate, even if momentarily. I can't really see a defined continuation for white that allows them to win in this position. If anyone could shine some light on this issue that would be greatly appreciated.


    ...Qf4 11.Qa1+ and white ends mating in Qa8
