A bug in the rules?
After white moves the pawn to h3 to hassle my black king, I ask why it is that my Black King can't move up to g3? [Note: Dinkydoe quite rightly points to the white knight on the back line - but ignore it, pretend it isn't there. Once I master the online board insertion tool, I can update the illustration. ]
How can I be moving into check when white's "attacking" pawn at f2 is in fact a neutered pawn. It can't move or it will reveal a check from my black bishop.
Instead I am forced to retreat. Unfairly I think.
What are you views on this?
UPDATE: so I have made the effort and I know now that a piece that can attack a king, whether they can follow through with the attack or not, puts the king in check. Oh well. But then it is the philosophy of this rule which so fascinates me.
