    easy puzzle

    Am I missing something on the original puzzle?  Isn't the black king in check?

     That's what I thought, too, when I first saw the puzzle.  But look at the algebraic grid -- we're viewing the board from the Black side!

     Ah, yes.  I just assumed that white started on the bottom of the board.  I will pay attention to that next time.  Thanks.

    If the Queen takes the knight,then Rf6 is devastating. The Queen either has to move away from the defense of f3, which allows the powerful Qf3+!, or be captured.

    I believe White can't take the Knight with the Queen probably because Rf6 will place very heavy pressure on the White Queen and open for a batshit of checks if White isn't careful.

    Nice puzzle!

    If queen takes knight, then Rf6 and white queen cannot prevent black queen to go to f3
