Removing The Guard
Puzzle #1

Imagine Black's Queen wasn't on f7 ... She'd be leaving Black's Rd5 vulnerable to White's Queen (Qg2) and, with Black's other Rook (Ra8) and King (Kg8) triangulated to the d5-square, White's Queen would have a Double Attack on both Black Pieces, that would win a second heavy Piece.

Now we know that Black's Queen is the Guard, how does White Remove the Guard?
