I'm in a game where the opponents knight is pinned between my queen & his king and therefore cannot move.He moved his queen next to my king in a position where IF he Could move his knight,I'd put my king in check by taking his queen.logic dictates to me that since he is unable to move his knight because it would put his king in check ,then my king should be allowed to take his queen.Is there a ruling for this? I'm sure this is'nt the 1st time this has happened but I've been unable to find any specific ruling for such an instance
