    Extremely good Saturday puzz.  I usually don't enjoy draw puzzles, but this one is outstanding.  The forced pin of the pawn was inspired.  What a choice!  Give up your queen and likely lose, or draw?  Drawing with so many pieces in play is a real challenge.  I only question how such a great draw play could come from a player who got into such a total, absolute mess in the first place.  Thanks for brightening up my Saturday.

    Once the black queen takes the white queen, it becomes white's move... White is not in check, but any move he makes will put him in check.  This is called Stalemate, and is considered a draw.

    No, it's a draw.  White forces a draw so he can't get checkmated.
