    It looks as if the white queen is trapped.

    White's move



    I was in this position this morning in a 15 0 game on USCL. How did I do?

    I like it the other way around. Nxf6+ then Qxa8. I just think it looks nicer, but your way is nice too, sacrifice, discovered check, recover material with interest!

    At what point was this a difficult combination to see. It is forced for goodness sake! (unless you want to lose material)
