Winning Chess Game Puzzle: Spot the Killer Move

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,

How tough is it to win a won chess game? You need to make double the effort to find the killer move. Here's a game from the Istanbul Chess Olympiad. (Can you guess who played it?). How accurate are you? Black has just played Ka8 after the Qc7+. The Black Queen is saving the checkmate on b7. What is the killer chess move here that will force Black to resign?

Check your answer with Chess King! The game is commented by Chess Queen™ Alexandra Kosteniuk!
