    Most puzzles on here are queen sacrifices. Then we are playing and blunder a queen sacrifice to some unbeknownst calculation. Chess.com, always trying to push our pawn game skills.

    Wait, why couldn't black play 1... Be7 after 1. Qxf4? Isn't it not mate in 3 then?

    If this was not a puzzle, most chess players would not sacrifice the Queen. This is a good way to train how observant you are.Wink

    I think this has been covered elsewhere on this thread but the point is the queen, if left on f4, can then mate black on either g4 or g5 !  Black cannot cover both squares.
