why can't black take rook with queen???
What puzzle are you looking at??? In this daily puzzle the white Rooks are never threatened by the Black Queen!
After White plays: 1. Nf6+ Black only has 3 legal moves all which end in mate.
1. ... Kf8 which ends in mate-n-2 with 2. Rxe8#,
1. ... Kh8 which ends in mate-n-2 with 2. Rxe8# and
1. ... Qxf6 which ends in mate-n-2 with 2. Rxe8#
Also note: The checking white Knight at f6 is threatened by the Black Pawn at g7; however, this pawn is Pinned by the Ice Queen at g4.
Very nice, thanx for sharing...
