Problem number 62920
After black plays Nxd5, can anyone explain why white cant save his queen by playing Qxd5? True, according to Stockfish 8, the position is heavily in favour of black [at depth 25 is was -5.25], but at least white gets to keep his queen.


I checked your problem and after losing his queen white has a knight fork (29.. Ne7+) so he is just trading his queen off.

The position is more difficult for black to win because white has compensation for his lost piece.

Black loses a piece no matter he exchanges queens or not, but if they keep queens, position just gets worse.
