    That would be fabulous.  How do you do it?

    I wonder if Sutovsky saw it all the way to the end when he did the Qxh7+.

    I saw the next couple of moves, and knew that this was a puzzle where queen-sac is often the key to success, so I did it. But doing that in a game is a very different challenge.  I would have to visualize all six moves just looking at the board.

    It would certainly be very risky to sac the queen if you did not see it led to checkmate.
