    Played it against Hiarcs:

    1... Qxe4+ 2.Rxe4 Kg6 (instead of a1=Q) and it took me more 31 moves to mate.

    Thanks for your help. I agree it seems easy it most cases, but here the rook is tied to prevent pawn promotion so, I can't go that deep in my head, but it seemed better than an immediate resignation.

    PhilipN I agree this is a good puzzle

    paashpoint0 Qxe4 Rxe4 gxh4, white can just take Rxh4+ then play Ra7 giving one of the rooks for the a pawn. The extra exchange + pawn is an easy win for white.

    Instead of Queening, does g5xh4 save black? then queening when able. Appreciate the help here.

    I commented on the live Chess.com TV chat that this looked like a worthy Daily Puzzle.

    Yeah maybe a bit early, but I am not sure stirtha11 why in your continuation you didn't do Qxb3... The pawn would promote I think and at least take a rook. I don't know

    Looking at it, 4.g4+ was the move hard to spot, as 4.Rxh7+ directly gives the advantage to black. Of course and engine will easily find this.

    Given that Aronian missed h6 in his game with Kramnik a couple of days earlier, maybe Radjabov should have given it a try!

    I don't deserve the credit. I was watching it live on chess.com and someone wrote the line. I forgot it but remembered g4+ and the rest was easy to figure

    Qd4, Rxd4 and he (black) is lost once more?
