Funny!:) Thanks chess.com

I dont understand. Moving the king to the far corner results in losing your queen and a sure loss?

• #183

kc brna, if black takes out whites queen then whites king will have no where to move without being in check resulting in a stalemate

This puzzle has a rather obvious alternate drawing solution:  Qf6+, with a perpetual check.

Illegal.  Check post #188.

no idea why that's a good move

Set it up and play it out 5 moves.  Before you reach the 5th move you'll have figured out why the solution is the solution

@rachitisfree:

blacks queen is pinned, therefor can she not move otherwise then capturing the white queen.

1. Kh1 Kh4 2. Qg2: and white wins.

1. Kh1 Qf2: stalemate.

1. Kh1 h2 2. Qh2:+ Qh2:+ 3. Kh2: and black can not promote his last pawn.

So, after Kh1 black can lose and white has a draw.
