How to Win a Chess Game in 2 Moves





Introduction: How to Win a Chess Game in 2 Moves

Sometimes, you just want to win a game of chess quickly.

While that is usually impossible, all you need to win a chess game in 2 moves is a board, pieces, and a willing ( or bad-at-chess) friend.

You will have start off as the black side to start.

Step 1: Your Opponent Makes His/Her First Move

Your opponent moves pawn to f4 on his/her first move. Not a great starting move, but not a bad one either.

Step 2: Your 1rst Move

You move your pawn to e6, to open up your queen.

Step 3: Your Opponent Slips-Up

Your opponent has moved pawn to g4, opening up the right file for attack. A poor move.

Step 4: Checkmate!

By moving your queen to H4, you have put the king in check, but there is no where to go and no piece to block check with. Checkmate!

Congratulations, you have officially won a game of chess in 2 moves

    2 Tips

    pawns can only capture pieces one space forward diagonally to them. the pawn in question cannot capture the queen because it is directly in front of the queen.

    Ew no you have not. Pawn moves forward captures queen.

    then it does not work. this only works if a very specific arrangement of moves happends.


    I remember having this played with my father two times in turn and he did not get it. We never played chess again later.

    So your Father started as white for both games?

    Yes, he did. He was quite angry loosing two times that fast against his son :-/

    He/She will be able to take it there is nothing else helping the queen so the king can just take it

    The king can only move one space at a time.

    Wait, isnt that 3 moves? Cause u made the first with the pawn, 2nd with the queen, tbird would be the queen moving to take the king? Right???

    Once in checkmate the game has ended.


    I will move the white pawn from H2 to H4 to kill your queen
