the black rook a6->d6? I donâ€™t know much about notations soâ€¦

This move doesnâ€™t lose the game, but there is a better move here.

Queen captures pawn at b3. Then another pawn at a2. Checkmate.

@NBH09 bro black doesnâ€™t get two moves in a row XD

Qx(b3) is the best move for blackâ€¦

Only if chess can be played that way

You are absolutely right !!

I meant that pawn canâ€™t capture queen because thereâ€™s rook at a6. So ultimately whatever the next move white takes, thatâ€™ll be checkmate by queen taking the pawn on right, on the next move. Hope itâ€™s clearâ€¦

Not really actually. After Qb3, C pawn canâ€™t take you because Rc1 will be mate. But C pawn can be pushed. c4 will protect the A pawn. So what is going to be your move then?

My bad. It would be rook taking the pawn at queenâ€™s right in the next move (after whiteâ€™s next move). Then thatâ€™s checkmate. Sorry for the typoâ€¦ I wrote queen instead of rookâ€¦

actually it is not. after c4, black queen protects the a2 pawn. So if rook takes, queen will take back.
