    Wonderful, so simple and yet it contains so much, stalemates, both Queens en prise, and that's before the "simplyfying!" Queen sacrifice, enabling the last pawn standing to claim the game.

    This is the sort of magic that makes playing chess so rewarding, well done TT!

    The pawn f6 is now free to move, so it's not stalemate.

    QxQ leads to stalemate so you have to find a way to mate. It turns out that a move of the queen on the 8th rank allows for the same scenario (ex: Qh8 responded with Qd5, note that Qc5+ allows a king move mate). So the queen has to move to the 7th rank but not covering the square c5 would allow for Qc5+, that's why the queen goes to c7 to deliver the fatal check resulting in the pawn mate.

    I can't find the problem with Qd8 or Qa8.  It seems to me that Qc5+ is answered by Kf7+ and attempts to deflect the queen with black's queen a la Qd5 can just be taken since it doesn't block the f6 pawn anymore.  Help?
