Will someone please tell me why the black queen cannot take the white rook on d4 and defeat that check move? Someone else asked this also.
Because queen moves to g3 checkmate? That's kinda obvious
what happens if 2... kf4
Took me a while to see this: Rook puts king in check, queen takes rook, then queen g3 checkmate.
Even if a beginner makes a winning move by mistake, it is still not luck. Everything happens for a reason.
That's a perfectly valid viewpoint that I wouldn't argue with. I didn't know that was what you were getting at.
Sweet.Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
Thanks for the puzzle.
