@Therell- If it was taken from a real game, it makes sense that it would end when black resigned. It would be a bit of a misrepresentation if it kept going.

Agreed.  The puzzle wouldn't accurately reflect the real life game if it kept going to checkmate. Also explains why black may have missed a move or two in the puzzle, especially his blunder on move 6, taking the queen instead of dealing with the very real threat of White's b-pawn.  It's a real life game with occasional Black errors, and not the "always the best move for black" puzzles we usually see.  Great Saturday puzz!

Yeah.  I got it with a few missteps, but it's tempting to just pick up the black queen, even with that nasty threat to white by the black bishop/rook combo.  It seems that black queen taking white queen was just too tempting; definitely a blunder, but a hard one to see when you're under the gun.  White pawn was definitely an overlooked threat.  Fantastc puzzle today.
