    I saw that the Black Queen was saving black, but did come up with the idea to divert it. A very good but very difficult puzzle for me.  Very instructive, too.

    wow! this is wonderful!

    Why would the black Queen not take the whit Queen after moves 1 or 2 There is nothing covering the white Queen and thus a strait take not a trade? Veary confused by this puzzle.

    Great puzzle for Deflection.  with Back Rank mate looming all white wants to do is remove either the Queen or C Rooks influence over the e Rooks light square that both whites Rooks are pointing at.  Very Nice.
