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 (f4 is actually a terrible first move unless you're very good, as it exposes your king).

Step 2: Your First 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 H-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 nowhere to go and no piece to block check with. Checkmate!

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

    This is coming up quite a bit: you cannot win using fool's mate unless your opponent moves the F pawn to F3 or F4 and the G pawn to G4. If your opponent does not do this, you can't mate them in two moves.

    Tip 2 years ago

    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.

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