    Guys I have a doubt.. Why cant the black queen move to f7 ??? Its not Check mate !!!!!

    The black queen moves to f7 where it is pinned and then the White Q is free to swoop right in front of the black King right in front of it, with the black Q watching helplessly nearby, giving Checkmate with support of the white Knight.   For me the key question to ask myself is "What is this white bishop going to do?" and then I randomly thought "What if White sacks the rook here?" and the two questions combined to give me the answer to the puzzle.  But before that I was going to think about slow moves, and realized the white Q could be taken by the Black one; then only something quick and surprising could lead to a checkmate.

    I feel like ur not in this anymore. These puzzles make me feel sad for the fraudulent mind that would declare this offering, even modestly challenging. I literally invited a street urchin, with a cursory understanding of the game, to dwell upon this so called puzzle. After a moment, he looked up and spit in my face. "Don't waste my time, guy. I may be disadvantaged, but i can tie my fucking shoes and feed myself. This is an insult"

    The "solution" is not checkmate; the queen can still move between the king and the bishop.

    True but how do you prevent 4.Qe7# (or Ng7#) ?

    I make no claims as to how to prevent other moves, I'm merely pointing out that this "solution" is different from all the "solutions" that I have seen for the daily puzzles, in that this one does not end in checkmate.  I'm interested to know why we have broken from the consistency.
