    if i exchange the queen, i'm up a rook.  this way, i'm down material, and the position doesn't look decisive to me..

    There's no way to 'exchange the queen' pQ4, because the queen is pinned by the  bishop to the king.  The choice is lose the queen or the rook.  And you're still up by a bishop and 2 pawns after this exchange.

    yes, i must have been suffering from 'chess blindness' again.  Right you are Rickter.

    Easy problem :D

    Looks like a tough endgame because black's king still has some pressure but white now has a fairly big advantage.

    You have all missed the continuation. White plays his rook to the 8th rank forcing black to give up his queen.

    The continuation is not clear as the last move was not forced. That is why the problem stops here.

    Great Puzzle... The queen is pinned to the king but the only thing defending the bishop is the black king so after Rh8+!! White saves their queen and is still up a bishop. @rockettorque I must be missing something... how do you win blacks queen?? After Rh8+!! you are forced to take the bishop.
