    No way! White can barely survive 3 or 4 moves.

    Why have you studied for an hour? If you look at white's options, there is very little it can do... I wouldn't have thought that it required too much thought to see that.

    Setting up a second account to get tips on in progress games is completely out of order.

    And if you're going to do it try to do it before the game is beyond help.

    He CERTAINLY hasn't taken a screenshot of a board he is playing on with another account...He could at least have set up the position on a board with different graphics from the one here!

    Try figuring out a way for a lone King to beat a Queen.

    Hold on... first of all this is not an in-progress game. This is a game myself and a friend were playing on my personal chess set. We worked out many different moves trying to find any way for white to win... after thinking every possible move out for about an hour we came up with nothing. Im not trying to cheat in any in-progress game, just trying to gain some knowledge here folks. I then went to the internet and searched for some chess forums.. found this one. THEN I noticed I could set up the game on the sites online game board.. making it easier to show you folks rather than posting the notation I have written down right next to me. I then took a screen shot, uploaded it and showed it here. I really do not appreciate the crap talking. I came here with a simple question and got a bunch of disrespect. This is my first time here and after this I dont see myself coming back.


    Now, with that said... we highly doubted there was a way to win but there are ways for white to stay in for a bit longer keeping his queen. Anyway, those who gave me an answer.. thank you.

    We get a lot of smart*sses and stupid questions here, so forgive the smart alec comments, because it smells of troll.
    You don't need to spend an hour over analysis. The question should be can White save the situation? Five minutes are enough. The king can't get off the back rank and it can't castle because it's already been moved. Candidate moves are Rc1, Qe2 or Qe2. Either way, White loses a Queen for a rook and is in a hopeless situation.
    This is a great site, BTW. You should try it out.
