Check, Checkmate and Stalemate

By Bronx/Westchester Instructor Jose Leon

How can students know the difference between check, checkmate and stalemate?

Check- is when a players king is threatened directly by another players piece or the king is being attacked and in danger.

Checkmate- is when the king is in check (danger) and has no legal moves to escape.

In order to prove checkmate students must use the CPR or the ABC method:

-Capture, Protect, Runaway

-Avoid, Block, Capture

Stalemate- is a situation in chess where the player whose turn it is to move is not in check and has no legal moves, resulting in a draw.
