so the point of checkmate wasnt the purpose this time???


 Nope, but these types of puzzles have ben rare lately.  I usually don't like non-mating puzzles, but that hidden mate if QxQ was worth it.

Hints for posting in the Daily Puzzle thread:

1) If you think there is a flaw in the puzzle, you simply don't understand it completely.


Riiiiiiiiiight . . . like the times when the puzzle's busted and nothing will move. Totally the user's fault.


 Hey, I give Azukikuru a thousand bonus points for not posting "First."  He obviously saw all of the repetitious comments yesterday, and the numerous posters who didn't take the time to analyze the puzz.  I missed an obvious move, but I had the humility to ask, received a number of replies, yet a lot of other people never bothered to look at the answer, because the same question kept getting re-asked.  I'm grateful for any post that's not "easy" or "first" -- or "stupid puzzle."

Thought provoking & better than some recent (& trickier) ones because of no inexplicable/daft  moves that you sometimes see. Only had 1 incorrect move on the board this time-think I must be improving!

I somehow accidently made the right move trying to make the right move for 2)Qg3+ (I accidently dropped the queen on that square , then didn't realise it and tried to make that same move again)

Nice puzzle though.

Why didn't the black Queen take the white Queen?

Sometimes, when I'm stumped, I use the accidently dropped technique also.
