1.Qd8! 1.Qxe7 ? Kf3 !! = 1.Qa8+ (?) Kf4 ! 2.Qf8+ Ke4 3.Qd8+ is just a loss of time.
1…Qc4 1…Qa4+ 2.Qa5 ! (2.Kb6 ? =) 2…Qc4 3.Ka7 ! (3.Qb6 ? Kf5 !! = and not 3…Kf4 ? 4.Qf2+ +- see below 2.Qb6-try) 3…Qc5+ ! 4.Qb6 !! (now) 4…Qa3+ 5.Qa6 ! Qc5+ and White wins, eg 6.b6. 1…e5 ? 2.b6 ! +-
2.Qd7 !! 2.Qxe7 ? Kf3(5) or even 2…Kd3 =
2…Ke3 ! 2…Kf4 3.Kb7 ! e5 4.b6 and 4…e4 is now answered by 5.Qc7+ +-
