Kingzinski of the Internet chess club was aiming for this position when he sacrificed his queen in the middle game. It appears this blitz player with the black pieces may stand better with a Rook and two bishops against White’s Queen.

However, after Qb4 check, Black will either be mated or suffer substantial loss of material. Note that after the natural Ke8, Black is paralyzed after Qd6 which threatens mate and Qb8 winning the lonesome and quite vulnerable prelate at b7.
