Begin with an End in Mind- WTM

As Dan Heisman says Loose Pieces fall off. Here with White to Move, it's important to evaluate some options to see if you can grab the queen as well as preventing mate.

I am not only building patterns for a specific positions but for opportunity recognition in games. I'd hoping to further develop my tactical "spider" sense that there is a possibility of a tactic when a position arises.

Here Black's Queen is a clear target and worth some clock time to see if she call be caught.

Interestingly enough this position occurs when black is focusing on Queen to G2 for the mate.
