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.

Whistle  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
