so im terrible. why wouldnt the black pawn take the quees on the second move?
But why cant black cut queen with pawn?
RH8# how come it become mate Ke7 is still there
why doesn't Pawn take Queen on first Black move
Bishop pin on d4 and pawn on e6 traps the king ! NB... Black King is initally on g8 and can't move to e7.
On the second move black is in check with bishop on C5.
The first move is really nice, but I think there are more solution to this.
What's wrong with 2. Qf6+ ? If the King moves out from the check, then 3:Qh8# or if 2:...,Rf7 then 3:Qxf7#
Or am I missing something?
You have solved this problem! 22. e8=Q#
