Dare to Take the Queen

The game bellows shows the tactic of back rank checkmate and how to chase the piece (the Queen in this case) which guard the back rank square e8 (which occupies by Rook in this case) to deviate the Black Queen from her role/task. White offers and sacrifices his Queen and pawn to do so and Black never dares to take the White’s Queen.

When your opponent sacrificing, they are always four considerations to be taken:

1. Just accept it;
2. Just to swindle you to make you to lose your time;
3. Decline/reject it; or
4. Resign.

Here is the said interesting game. Enjoy the game…
