Queen Moves

In grandmaster Jacob Aagaard's book "Excelling at Positional Chess" he describes the Queen as being the wizard of the game, (rooks - cannons, bishops - archers, knights - cavalry.)

In these tactical excercises found in Tactics Trainer, it will become apparent to the uninitiated, just how spectacularly powerful and magical the Queen really is.

She apparently has the power to freeze time and teleport across the board laying waste to the undefended minors and arriving uninvited at the enemy king's doorstep, with the chilling words, "Who's your Mommy?"

With this fantastic power to move in any direction for as far as she can see, comes the difficulty of working out which of her moves is the most effective. Be careful not to zig when you should zag.
