Why, can't you see?
If White manages to put his queen back on the board when no one is looking, he will surely win! How can you deny that?
He could also put it on a3 to avoid taking his own pawn, but the brilliant pawn sacrifice Q(x)a2!! allows the rook-covered queen to attack a7 immediately!
A devastating attack on the black king will follow. In case of 29. ..a5, White plays
30. Qb3! (threatening Rxa5) Kc7 30. Qb5! Nd7 31. Rxe6! Re5 32. Qc6+ Kd8 33. Qa8+ Nb8 34. Qxb8+ Kd7 35. Nxe6+! and Black's position is entirely resignable, for in case of ..Kxe6, there follows 36. Qxg6+ Kxe5 37. Qd5+ Kf4 38. Qf5# or mate with +.
|Aug-21-07|| ||technical draw: <Crowaholic> I did that once but with a Bishop. I palmed a captured bishop and and calmly captured a knight with it. My opponent looked surprised wondering where that bishop came from. We didn't finish the game because a few seconds later I burst out laughing!|
