The simplest way out of check is to move the king so that the rook is no longer threatening it. This is the case if Black moves the king from g8 to g7 (see the second diagram).

White to play Say that it's White to move in the first diagram above. One possibility is to slide the rook from the a1-square to the aS-square (see the sec ond diagram). On this square the white rook is attacking the black king on the g8-square. When a king is attacked by an enemy piece this is known as 'check'. On Black's next move he must take steps to get out of check - he is not allowed to do anything else before he deals with the threat to capture his king.
