Traps, Tricks & Mistakes: Travelling Queen

Properly, today’s post doesn’t explain a trap. It is a mistake, which the opponent punishes in an amazing and unexpected way.

The most amazing black’s combination is the queen’s journey. Forgetting general rules of piece development, black stars a sequence of moves with his/her queen across the board. Five of those moves are exclusively queen’s moves!. You will agree with me, that it is very difficult for a human player to discover that combination ‘on the board’.
