    why didnt the king move to h6 instead of h8 when he was put in check in move 3

    Study it harder next time.  He can't go to h6, he's not jumping two squares.  Over his pawns.

    I had the same idea, but then I was brought to realise that the black king wasn't obliged to go to the corner, and if it goes Kf8 instead, there are no useful checks anymore.
