Feb-14-11  tonsillolith: Wow. That was the most brute-force queen trap I have seen.
Jun-28-11  estrick: 27 ... Korchnoi to move and begin (probably saw the possibility starting to develop several moves prior to that) trapping Lein's queen might make a good mid week POTD.

Alternatively, 38 ... Black to move and sac back his queen to get mate would be OK for a Monday POTD
