This is check, because the black King is threatened by the white Queen

Check is a chess term that describes a king that is threatened by another piece. It is illegal for a king to move into check. If the king is in check and cannot:

1.) move out of check,

2.) capture the threatening piece

3.) put a piece between the king and the threat,

it is called checkmate, which ends the game.
