    Hi. I think i'm going to feel very stupid here but i think i'm playing a game that should be check mate - but the game hasn't ended..
    I have the black king in check, and he can't move or else he'll still be in check..
    Can anyone put me straight? If i'm missing something atleast i'll know next time...

    Game id is 5273318

    Thanks

    It's not checkmate, so the game continues. More can i not say while the game is yet in progres. But it's not your problem, your opponent must move first ...

    When a player is in check mate, the RHP will automatically see this and will terminate further play, declares the mating part a winner and the mated part, eh, the loser.

    In this case RHP works just fine. Believe me on this. I don't see any problem. Please go on with the game.

    This game is in progress, and therefore I don't want to give the exact explanation.

    hehe, there have been so many threads like this. It just makes me wonder what I'm doing wrong because I've never moved a pawn double to put a king in check.

    wow, I can't believe we get so many of these types of games. I thought the odds of such a position happening wouldn't be so high?
