Escaping check

There are 3 ways to escape check:  capture the attacking piece, block the check with one of your pieces or move the king.

In this position Black clearly has only one choice.

😙  Where should Black move the king to ?

It would seem that King to c8 would be a good counterattacking move as White's rook is unprotected.

Unfortunately Black made a bad choice...  Play the game
