The Queen Strikes Back

Patzer sees check, patzer gives check? Or what is the reason for always checking checks first? Simple because a tempo gain is guaranteed, such as here. Maybe in most cases patzers are right, even if they do not stumble over a mate they have not seen.



Black to move. Queen hanging.

Principal variation: 23.-Qd3+ 24.Kg1 Nb3 threatens to capture the Rook a1 or the Bishop c1 only protected by the Rook. Sanity check positive because Queen is not in danger. Black should be winning.
