Chess is a game of strategy that people began playing over 1500 years ago. People of all ages and skill levels play the game for fun, in tournaments, and even online. Kids Academy’s chess course teaches students to play with lessons that begin with the basic fundamentals to more advanced plays and moves.
Coach Rob instructs young chess enthusiasts on the Double Check with this video.
He explains that the Double Check is when two pieces attack a king at the same time. The king being attacked has only one option which is to run away. Two pieces cannot be blocked in one move, nor can two pieces be captured in one move. It is an excellent opportunity to put a king in check or gain more of the opposing player's pieces. Coach Rob demonstrates several ways to use the Double Check strategy to ensure understanding.
Using two pieces to attack a king is a powerful move that often takes your opponent by surprise. Learn about this special strategy in this video!
