    Ingenious: took me a moment to realize that white's g-pawn was pinned after Qxe6. Would have never have seen this possibility in a game.

    Right, I missed the pinning too. Other than that, nice puzzle.

    absolutely disgusting and childish. There is nothing to learn from this kind of puzzle. We need to know how to win even in weak state, but this one teaches how to loose a solid game!

    The title gave a clue that it had to be a stalemate. I was struggling with the idea of what to do with the g pawn, since after sacrificing the Rook and the Queen, the pawn can still move. Did not see the pin

    Could someone please explain. I don't understand.

     

    If black queen takes white queen, then white has lost two major pieces and black still has queen, rook and knight and can win surely?

    black has no other piece to move though it's his turn
