On wiki it says you can not place a check but you can place a direct checkmate.
Here on lichess you can.
WHY?

I don't see why that would be a rule, and I see no mention of it on the ZH wiki either:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crazyhouse#Rules

That said, lichess is free to implement what it feels to be the best version of a variant.

Only registered members with one week of lichess activity can contribute to the Q&A.
