Black-to-Move

I am alive.

And I am still playing chess. Why almost 9 months of silence? Long story . . . .

Anyways, came to this position the other day. Black is clearly winning, white has just played 1. Rh3 preventing checkmate. What's is black's best reply?

1... g3## is checkmate. Hardly rocket-science, but a nice little move that could be easily overlooked in the throngs of quick-moving, little-time-to-think blitz chess.
