Checkmate mix (2)

In this lesson you will practise again with positions that are very similar. Your goal is to checkmate in one move. This time you do that with your queen, a knight and a pawn.

Have a look at the examples.
Four of the five pieces are in the same place, only the knight is on a different square.

It is important that you get your pieces to work well together. Attack the king from close by or from a distance.
But make sure you don't let the king escape! If you move a piece that controls a flight square of the king, the king may get away. And you don't want that!
Does the king still have escape squares? Try to control these first.


What do you have to do?

Checkmate the black king. Have the queen, knight and pawn team up.
