# An Impossible puzzle?

I was playing chess and I came upon this position in which I believe

that there is no way for black to win. Here it is.

If black takes with Qxd5 then white simply goes Rh7 checkmate. If Black moves the pawn on c5 to check the king, then the king moves away. There are other positions that black could try but I think that none of them will stop the checkmate.

Whoops sorry, just realized that i put it wrong it should be...

At first, I thought Qg2 but it doesn't work when white goes Rd1 and the queen has to block. Then White has a checkmate with Rh7.

Black move his queen under whites, white moves the rook to check the king, black moves the king under his queen, white takes the queen, black takes the queen
