Let's see if you can find the strongest move in this position from a blitz game of mine. I'll give the position in a diagram first so you can ponder it without the temptation of just trying your first candidate move (as I often end up doing when positions are presented as puzzles):

 
Got your move and calculated the consequences? Let's see!
 
In the actual game, I missed this idea and thought the pawn capture and the ensuing discovered attack on my queen would be better for my opponent. Instead, I made an erroneous queen sac in time trouble only to have my opponent blunder back his own queen and walk right into a mating net. Lucky me, right?
 
Let's see if you can finish the game as well. Calculate the win!
 
 
 
Well, hope you enjoyed this.
