At this puzzle, next move is by White. The objective of the puzzle is to save your queen. The queen will fall in the line of attack of opponent’s bishop if their bishop moves to b4. This will pin your queen to your king so you will lose your queen.
You have four options to avoid loosing your queen.
- Attack the bishop when it moves to b4. This can be done my moving your pawn at a file to a3.
- Move your queen to a safer square, for example, b3
- Move either your knight or bishop in between the king and queen to d2. Here you can move your king even if the bishop moves to b4 since it will not epose your king to a check.
- Move your king away from e1
