    Is this a game in progress? If so, then is it not allowed to ask nor to answer.

    Bergman, this wouldn't be the first time he's tried to cheat.

    Thanks for the warning. I think that we think the same about this position, don't we?

    First of all, you set up the board wrong. 

    Two, you lose the queen. Simple.

    First of all, some of you need to get off your high horse and understand that this is simply a chess puzzle that I am trying to understand. I picked this up from http://chess.emrald.net/index.php and you can go there and verify that it is a tactics trainer puzzle and one would be playing against a computer ONLY. I am only asking for a reason why the computer says this is the best move. Frankly, all I have gotten from most of the people on chess.com is a bunch of criticism and rude remarks from a bunch of arrogant s.o.b's that think they know everything. I am not here to judge, preach, or "cheat." I am only here to understand why a computer is telling me that this is the best move available to me and therefore the solution to a tactical chess puzzle. NOTHING more. If you don't have valid input to provide that isn't solely criticism of my "ethics" then please refrain from commenting at all. You aren't helping and you are being rude. I am not sure if this is the place to be posting this as stated, but I felt I could get some help in understanding. Apparently I should look elsewhere.

    Thank you macer75 for your post. At least someone around here has the decency to help me understand. I really appreciate showing me the two options that white had aside from just moving the king. It is clear to me now why the computer had me make this move.
