     White's pieces are clustered menacingly around black's king but if black's king moves it would be a check! so enjoy this puzzle this is mate in 2

     


    Maybe it's my computer, but I've tried every move possible with every piece, and apparently none of them is the right one.  Would you mind posting the move sequence please?  Thanks.

    Boris, the pigmy peppered corydorus catfish in my aquarium solved this 'problem'.

    No, you missed it, the Queen would move to H5 instead of taking with the pawn.  This is checkmate, the king cannot escape the queen's check, and the pawn protects the queen.

    a better puzzle would have been knight to F5, xf5,Qxh5 checkmate. Sorry if my notation is all wrong but u get the picture.
