    I always understood that if a queen moves into one position next to King, that King could capture queen?

    Because in Game 4063915 he thought he could play KXQ but his computer is telling him "Game Over".

    Now why is that?

    King Cannot capture because the H File Pawn is protecting the Queen.

    no, given that the guy is rated 900 something, it may well have been a serious question.
    now, if a 2200 starts asking why the king cant take the queen, then I'll demand a sarcasm parade and a serious philosophical look at the meaning of chess/life.

    yeah, I knew that
    D.F. could have been just helping the guy out, OR he could have been being sarcastic. for all we know the player in question just learned how to play within the past week.

    it's correct grammar
    as is "had had"
    had had implies that in the past, you possessed something.
    been being implies that you were in the process of being something.

    oh, well...
    maybe it was all sarcasm
    or maybe he didn't know that the white pawn hadn't been facing backwards at the time of the attack.
    maybe, the pawn heard something in the bushes, and turned around to see what it was, and the OP thought that he could take the queen while the guardian pawn was distracted.

    most English teachers would tell you to scratch out being and one of the hads because it is BAD grammar to use unnecessary words but it doesn't matter i was just giving you a hard time...anyways my grammar ain't nothin' to be prouda
