what if 1. qa3?
Black could not accept the Queen Sacrifice. Thanks for the lesson!
Instead of asking the same questions over and over again, why don't those who did not understand the puzzle completely read the previous posts by fellow Chess.com members to see if maybe they have already asked the same question you are asking yourself, and there you can find the answer! If you are just writing it to get profile Points, then a simple, "Great puzzle" suffices. If you have something new to share, then please do so.
Best post ever. Ice is my new hero.
He's my hero, too. King of the comment police.
hard to resist taking the queen!
Very nice puzzle
You "only" win the queen that way. Qb4 forces mate.
I had the same thought as you.

After white queen first move, why wouldn't black queen take white queen? Just wondering
White promotes the pawn into a queen
Solved . Nice puzzle
Nice and easy, mate in 1
