    • Nd4 is actually what was played in the game. White can just take it with Bxd4 or Nxd4. In a lot of the Queen trap type problems one side doesn’t actually win the Queen, but Black has to give up material in order to give the Queen an escape square. So in this case White, doesn’t win the Queen, but still wins a piece, and has a winning position.
