    mate in 1 :

    why not Qg7 # ?


    You are playing white, and black is going from the 8th rank to the first rank, so the pawn would just take your queen on g7 :)


    Yeah, what he said.

    I was thinking the exact same thing except the king can now move (instead of a pawn) 1. Ba7 Kh2 (which slows the mate down by a move since white has to play Bxe3 before mating)

    why not Qc8 and then c1? or Qa2 and then b1?


    Qc8 e2

    if Qc1 then e1 and if Qxh3 then Kg1 (no mate in 2)
