# Clueless

Black has just moved Ke7, not shown. This is a tactic with white to move, answer is Qe7 which then says solved. I don't get it, please help a newb.

There is an error, probably in the diagram.  Ng3 is mate in one.  Seems too simple for a tactical problem.

Yes sorry Art i've just added that black moved Ke7 first.

However your post has made me see why it's Qe7 so thanks.

That still doesn't make sense.  Qe7 by black doesn't stop ng3 mate.  And black can't move Ke7...not sure we are even talking about the same diagram, maybe you posted the wrong one?

Ng6 not Ng3

I think he means that in the diagram Black plays Ne7 (not Ke7) and then Qxe7 (for white) would be correct as it wins a piece due to the Ng6# idea.

Thanks James.

Makes sense, removing the defender of the g6 square.

Yep Ng6  mate in one for white.

OK black Knight moved to e7  not shown  whites qween takes Knight on e7 correct move.if black tries to take the white qween. White has checkmate with ng6.

Yes my bad, should have said Ne7.
