Plagiaat. See Ed. Lasker versus sr. Thomas
Looks like Lasker's "King walk"
I like how these puzzles are a huge inside joke for all of chess.com. The first page guys, the constant queen sacrifices... HUGE inside joke.
Nice puzzle! but in a real game I would have played Nxc5, without thinking any more about it.
By now, daily puzzle should have us conditioned to go for the queen sac (especally if it is 1.Qxh7) automatically. Today, it opens up a beautiful double check by the knight and the bishop. Each successive move after that checks the black king and closes off escape squares, until the h-pawn can do the final kill.
2. ... Kh8 would lead to 3.Ng6#. And all black's other moves are forced.
Love it, and you're down in material, pulling off this fabulous sacrifice of the queen is absolutely world class!
it's always queen sacs on this site my first move on all daily puzzles is to sac my queen to check the king...
It took me 4 seconds because I have a bagel in my hand.
I thought the queen was protected by the bishop
