    Black can obviously win just by moving the knight. But what if its white's turn?

    Actually its not all that hard as a puzzle. The funny thing is this actually happened to me. Game 1497870 Move 29b. Unfortunately I was playing black.:'(

    Why exactly did you ignore the threat to promote with check??

    Bad idea, I know now. I figured if he promoted, yeah I'd loose a rook, but I thought I was close enough to checkmate that it wouldn't matter. I'd take the queen with the king, end of story. I completely missed the Qh8+.
