By your logic, the Bh2 couldn't pin the Ng3 because it is pinned itself, right?
Bishop on b6 stops your king from moving to g8, rook on H file is pinning your bishop to your king thus not allowing you to take the knight. So, knight to g3 is indeed checkmate.
that is checkmate. checkmate does not refer to capturing the king, only attacking the king (check) where the king cannot get out of check by any legal move.
How does anyone get to 1900+ online, without knowing the basic rules?
he is a good player. Just a brain fart at the moment. it happens.
No, he is arguing the pinned piece can't give check. Sorry, good players don't pose that question. It's been posed here many times, but by rank beginners.
he is a USCF 1800-1900 player. he is a good player.
??? What the heck???
Is there any chance that a 1300 rated player can beat a 2700 rated player?
