Takes Takes Bang! Queen Sacrifices
Compiled by ZS2029
--*--

In these positions, a queen is sacrificed. In Bredoff-Fischer, San Francisco 1957, the reason was to checkmate the enemy king on the back row. The rook on e5 wasn't actually protected: 1...Qxe5! 2. Rxe5 Rd1+! and White resigned after just 1...Qxe5!. White is mated after 3. Re1 Rxe1#.

1...Qg6 was a better try for Black.
Steinitz vs O Gelbfuhs, 1873 
(A13) English, 34 moves, 1-0

Black used a queen sacrifice to checkmate the enemy king.
