Capturing the King
#1
White and Black are playing a chess game. White puts Black in check. Black fails to see this and White then captures the King and claims the win.

White and Black are playing a chess game. Black puts his King onto a square where he's in check. White captures the King.

The same scenarios happen in allegro chess.

I've come across these scenarios a few times (not only in my own games) and the decisions made have been unclear.

Is White correct to get the win or can Black do so as capturing the King is illegal and White has made the most recent illegal move.

Asking this question on the internet is just as confusing.

Your thoughts on this.
