2012-12-10 16:53:08MaltaCross1278Counter-attacking the checking Queen, obliges White to move the Queen to safety, thus gaining a tempo for Black, who can then use that tempo to capture the HANGING White Knight! 
2012-12-10 16:53:30MaltaCross1278Thus, if after 1.Qxg5+ Rg6 we have 2.Qxe7, Black can reply with 2...Qxd4! anyway. 
2013-01-19 19:53:32BadMamaJama1284I was thinking the Q's reply would be Qxe7. Although the N is hung, it may be better, but so might Qc1. 
2013-04-24 17:50:53MaltaCross1278Missed the tactical double attack (Rook threatening Queen, and Queen threatening Knight), and instead blocked the check with my Knight (1...Ng6?) 
2013-11-09 03:13:22ChessHKI1615Why not just Qe3 instead of Qd2? 
2013-11-09 08:04:42chessisajedrez1743@chessHKI - after Qd2 or Qe3 black will play QxB, followed by QxQ and Ne6 regaining the Queen, one knight up.
