    How on earth is that possible?

     Congratulations - you have turned a chess game into one of sleight of hand

    White can win, but will have to move the king away (K to d6) to allow the black king to move. White will then need to promote h7, h8=Q=mate

    I checked the solution. Highly innovative. I warn you though: the stuffy old chess world may not be ready for this dynamite

    I'm guessing it's just a foolery for vernacular loopholes. :P

    I tried that move, but it wouldn't let me make it for some reason.
