I am playing a game in which I am black and in check but I think it is actually checkmate as I see no move that will allow me to either move my king without putting myself into checkmate or a move that will allow me to remove the threat (white pawn). Has anyone been in this situation? Is there possibly a "glitch"? I am stumped.

The answer was en passant Kewps.I've told Steve after he sent me a pm about it.

There's definitely a move, this has never been found to be a "glitch" in this forum. Have you checked for en passant and all possible captures?
Originally posted by @wolfgang59Technically you are correct and perhaps I shouldn't have pointed him in the right direction over the en passant thing.

You just helped him in active game.
