The solution given- checkmate in 6 moves is -  incorrect.

It is incorrect because the author of the puzzle gave in his solution 4....Qc6 which is a suicidal move resulting in a wrong solution of checkmate in 6 moves.

The correct move for  Black to avoid a checkmate in 6 moves but in 7 moves are (1) 4....Qf4 or (2) 4....Qd4+ or (3) 4....Qh4+.

Dude,Its still checkmate,so be it.

this doesn't make sense. Why wouldn't white queen just take the black queen on the first move?

• #10

stalemate

The actual initial position of the study is that one. White to play and win.

The first moves are straightforward: 1.b6+ (1.ba6? b5) 1...Kb8! 2.h4 a5 3.h5 a4 4.h6 a3 5.h7 a2 6.h8=Q (promotion to bishop is not good because white can't pull the black king off the corner) 6...a1=Q and so on.
