Not an "Easy Sunday" for me.

The first move cuts off f6 and e5 as escape squares for black's queen.

I didn't see the "trap black's queen" as the strategy until I saw that as the reason for move 1.

The continuation: 2. ... Qf3 still leaves both players with equal material, but black has lost the threatening position, and now white has the better position.  Can white convert this to a win?

--------edit-----------

Ooops!  Thanks to Khasab for pointing out an error in my notation:

 I meant: "The continuation: 2. ... Qf6 . . ."

And Thanks to Arisktotle for pointing out that 2. ... Qf6 loses to 3.Qxe3.
