Yup, you’re right. Thanks Yancey

I favored 1. ....Bxc5, but I think Alena has the better, cleaner idea of getting the queen to g3 first before capturing the pawn.

Eggman, that line is a blunder at move 2 for black, and probably even the 1. ....Qg4 part is inaccurate. After 1. ...Qg4 2.Qg4 e2+, white captures the bishop at d4 with check to win easily.

I also think that Qg4 wins fairly quickly.... 1 .... Qg4. 2 Qxg4 e2+! 3 Kh2 hxg4 4 Rxd2 e1=Q. They could trade bishops or not at that point, but black has won the exchange. There are variations... if white plays 3 Qxd4? Black can respond with 3 ... exd1=Q+ 4 Kh2 Qe2+, followed by 5 .... d1=Q, and black has won.

How does Q-g4 win immediately? After the queen exchange, Bxd2 and the outcome is not clear but at my level it would probably be drawn.

  1. ... Qg4+ wins immediately.
