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.
