Checking and getting out of Check

Example 4

Wolverhampton Chess Club

If any of your pieces are attacked, you can sometimes stop this by capturing the attacker. So you can also escape from check by capturing the piece which is checking the King.


White to move . The Rook moves and attacks the King. White says''check''. The King must get out of check. He could move away but as the Black Bishop is attacking the Rook he can capture it.
Black moves . The Bishop captures the White Rook and the Black King is no longer in check.
