Check is a situation in the game of Chess where a player’s King is threatened directly by another player’s piece.

If at any point in the game a player’s King is threatened directly by another player’s piece so that in their next turn, they will be able to capture him - the other player has put the King in “Check”.

In the first World of our ChessMatec App, called "Chess Basics" you will find that the last lesson will teach you how to Check the King!

Getting Out of Check

A player can get his King out of Check by :


moving another piece between the King and the piece that is threatening him in order to block the line of threat.


Moving the King to a different square so that he is not threatened by Check anymore.


Capturing the threatening piece.


While playing Chess, a player can never make any move that puts his King directly in the direction of another piece so that he is in Check.

Here is a video tutorial explaining how to get out of Check!

Below are downloadable PDF Worksheets so that you can start practicing Checking and Getting out of Check.
