White to move


The White queen moves and checks the Black King. Now if Black moves his King away then White's Queen will capture Blacks Queen.

Black has a better move,and he can use his Knight to BLOCK the RANK between his King and the attacking Queen.

The Black Knight moves. The way is now blocked . The Black King is no longer in check.
