Want to learn how to win chess in 2 moves?
You’re in the right place.
When most people think about the game of chess, they imagine a long, drawn out game, that moves slowly, and finally ends once most of at least one player’s chess pieces are all captured.
While this happens in many chess matches, it’s also possible to win chess in as little in 10 moves. In fact, it’s possible to win chess in only 2 moves!
While it’s rare to win chess in only 2 moves, it’s still a good strategy to understand, both to use when the opportunity presents itself, and to be sure it is never used against you.
Keep reading to find out how to win chess in only 2 moves.
1. Your opponent opens by moving their pawn to F4. This crucial move will exposure your opponent’s King diagonal allowing to be captured.
2. Your pawn is moved to E6, allowing for both your queen and bishop to be able to move across the chessboard.
3. Your opponent moves their pawn to G4, continuing to expose their King’s diagonal.
4. You move your queen to H4, placing the King in checkmate.
Why is this checkmate?
Your opponent’s King has nowhere to move, and no pieces to block the queen’s attack, or capture the queen.
If your opponent does not move both pawns out, this 2 move checkmate will not work, which is why it’s rare to happen.
That being said, it does happen, and may very well happen when you play, either for you to win in 2 moves, or possibly lose (Don’t worry, it happens to us all).
Keep in mind, while it’s great to understand and be able to both win and prevent the 2 move checkmate, what’s most important in the game of chess is understanding basic chess strategy.
This includes always keeping your pieces protected, making every move count, and understanding the value of each chess piece.
By just understanding these 3 basic chess strategy principles, you will naturally prevent a 2 move checkmate from happening.
It’s also important to note that this is why it’s highly beneficial in the game of chess to bring your knights out on the chessboard. The knights have a wide range of attack, and can prevent an opponent from winning the chess game in as little 2,3,4 or 5 moves.
