    The answer is moving your most valued lady in the furthest rightest highest square to deliver the kill.

    This puzzle was so hard!  A person who had no idea how to play chess might not even be able to solve it.

    Aha! 1. Qc5, Kc1, followed by Qg1# was brilliant! Excellent puzzle! I tried Qc1+ at first but it didn't work. What would be black's response then? What is the catch?

    If Black's response were to resign that would also work.

    If white plays Q-c1+, black's response would be KxQ

     

    I was thinking Q-c5 didn't leave black's king anywhere to go & it would be stalemate, then I saw the black king could go to a-1  and white's queen can mate on g1

     

    Or white can mate by

    Q-a7...Kc1

    Q-g1#

    But what's wrong with Q-b2# ?

    Q-g1#

    If you make that last one Q-a5-e1 you mate OK, but if he plays Kc1, you miss the pocket (similarly with 1.Qb2# and that's boring to boot).
