Hi friends,
let us suppose that after his flag's fall the player
shows to the arbiter that the only legal move
he had just was checkmate.
As example:

W plays Qg8 and then B flag just fall before he can move.
The only move he could do is just: Rd8 mate!
The Question is: is it right that Black looses that game
because time?
I think no. I think Black is the winner.
