    *I hit enter before I typed the body, sorry*

    My friend and I just registered to play a couple games tonight and we can't figure out why this isn't mate.
    http://www.redhotpawn.com/core/playchess.php?gameid=2274020
    We could be overlooking some small or technical thing because we haven't played in a while, but I was wondering if anybody here could enlighten us.

    There is still a valid move that could be made.

    Not sure what more I can say really.

    As there is only one possible move here (and a friendly game) - I suggest you read the rules of the game on the site carefully, especially the section on en passant.

    If black doesn't find the move - is it mate then?
    Is his only option to give up?
    Or is it a draw because there isn't any move to be found from both sides?
