Question from a new person...why wouldn't the pawn just kill the queen?


It can't because it is pinned by the bishop.

I don't understand...what does it mean to be pinned?

Problem with this puzzle before it starts, black would not have left white's Queen standing.

 


And if the puzzle had said "Black to move" you'd have had a point. If. Duh.

Congrats to those who noticed it. It was pretty easy if you ask me, if you noticed the bishop.
