TRADING QUEEN FOR PAWN: POST YOUR QUEEN SACS HERE

  • #1

    POST YOUR QUEEN SACRIFICES HERE:

    This position arose in a game I recently played. I analyzed the sacrifice for several minutes and I realized what I could play. I've sacrificed my queen before, but never in this manner. Somehow, through looking for a deflection of white's queen, I saw the move. When I offered my queen, white accepted immediately without thinking. Perhaps he was thinking: "Did my opponent forget that pawns capture diagonally?" The possible continuations after the acceptance of the sacrifice are truly beautiful. All of them are forced mates.

    Another possibility is 3. Qf1 and then 3... f2+ leads to checkmate after the bishop, pawn and rook move to block and are captured.

    Also possible is 2. Re8+ Rxe8 and mate is still forced after 3. Qxd4 or 3. Kg1
