Took me a second too. After Qb4+ black can't capture with Qxb4 because that allows white to promote d7 to a Queen and mate (because of the Bishop on g2). Kg8 is black's only move.

Thanks for posting this comment. I didn't understand why black wouldn't just take Qb4. :-)

So dumb. If You are close to mate I am not doing down without a fight. I would have def taken the queen, not my move king.

Gotcha.  So allowing yourself to get checkmated by the lowly pawn is "putting up more of a fight" than refusing to let White dictate the deflection to you.  Good to know.

If you call being mated a move earlier "not going down without a fight", knock yourself out. Laughing

That doesn't make any sense. Why wouldn't black's queen just take the white queen instead of moving the King? That gets him out of check and captures white's queen. DUH!

I dont agree, why the black queen woudnt capture white queen ????

I'm in the boat with you!  I think we must be missing something, though I can see it.
