1. Qg4+ N:g42. R:c7 wins a Knight for a pawn.
It's a good thing for White that his knight is on f3. Otherwise, this wouldn't work!1. Qg4+ Nxg4 2. Rxc7 Winning a piece.
Very neat!1. Qg4+!! Nxg4 (forced)2. Rxc7 1-0(The knight is trapped and White is a piece up!)
1 Qg4+ Nxg4 2 Rxc7 Ne33 fxe3 Rxe3...
Is this a zwischenzug?1.Qg4+! (worth the exclamation mark)If K moves then Rxc7 and black's Ngets trapped taking white's QIf 1....Nxg42.Rxc7 and black's N is still trapped.0-0-0-0-0-
Qb2 will force black Q to retreatafter which white can capture black knight.
1. Qg4+1. … Nxg42. Rxc7 and the black knight is trapped.1. … Kf8 or Kh8 or Kh72. Rxc7 Nxg43. hxg4, up one knight.

Took me a while to solve this- short as it is, I had to get out the chess board before I could see it. I saw the first move almost immediately, but didn't realize that the black knight has no retreats afterwards:1. Qg4! Ng4A king move allows Rxc7 and white will recapture the knight at g4. However, it doesn't really matter much:2. Rc7 and now where does black move the knight that it can't be captured?
1.Qg4+ NxQ 2. RxQ and now Black Knight cannot escape to a safe square and will perish.
1.Qg4+, Nxg42.Rxc7,.. black loses knight
Curious about the alternative:1. Qb1I see no black move to save the knight here? E.g.1. ... Qe7Trying to get payed for the knight.2. Re1Then Rxe3 will follow. Or:1. ... Qf42. Re1Also pinning the knight, then fxe3 will follow.To get at least a pawn for the knight, I guess:1. ... Qd8/Qd72. fxe3 Rxe3But of course, Qg4+ has the advantage of exchanging queens, and is clearer, when you see it.
@pht:1. … Nc4
Thank you, Steppenwolf.
