67 ( +1 | -1 ) Rules-Royal PinOkay, I have a question. First, this is an active game so please don't show me how to win. There are other pieces on the board which I won't provide here. I'm only interested in knowing what the rule states about this particular, somewhat hypothetical, scenario.
White has the following set up: Rooks on f2 and f1. King on g1. Pawns on g2 and h2. Queen on e7.
Black has: Pawns on f7,g7,h7. King on g8. Rooks on f8 and c8. Queen on d4.
Now the question. If white plays 1. Qxf7, is black allowed to play 1. ... Kxf7?
Since the rook on f2 is not allowed to move due to the pin by black's queen against the white King, is the black king really putting himself in check with this capture?
