Learn to Play Chess – Direct Check
You know the basics of check and checkmate in chess. You know how to play chess however just to make the concept stronger so that your kids don’t forget in any game keep practicing with more and more examples and bring it down to the level of how to play chess for kids.

Because when you are playing the game you never know what move is your opponent is going to make so you need to be every board situation that can happen.

So we know that check means that the king is in danger and if it does not make it out alive from this danger, it will be checkmate and the game will be over.

Let’s take this example from the video.

Here it is white’s turn and it wants to put the black king in check, so what can be the perfect move here? Now you should also know here that not all checks are good. Just because you see a check does not mean that it would be wise to play it, you need to consider the whole board’s situation.

In this game, we see that the white’s knight is already developed so it can be used to attack the black king. It can go to e5 and g5 but none of them would be helpful in attacking the black king, the knight is too far away which means that we can’t attack the king with the knight. The queen can also not attack because it will be blocked by a knight as it moves one step forward.

The bishop here might do the work for us. Both black king and the white bishop are in the light square. You must note that the dark-squared bishop cannot check the light squared king, it’s the wrong color, and hence we must only attack with the dark squared bishop.
As we move this bishop to b5, the king is now in danger.

This brings the black king under attack and it is now checked.
So now you know how different moves can be done using different characters of chess to win the game and bring the game to checkmate.
