How to Play Chess : Avoid a Fool’s Mate when Playing Chess


Hi! My name is Ken and I here today to talk
to you about playing Chess. In the last segment, I talked to you about Fool’s Mate but how
do you avoid getting put in Fool’s Mate if you know what Fool’s Mate is. Let’s take a
look at the board one more time. If we look closely we will just put ourselves into the
King’s opening which what we did before. The corresponding Pawn comes out here as we just
saw before and the pieces are out of order here. The Bishop comes out, we are attacking
this Pawn here, person is doing this, doing all the moves and the Queen comes out. As
soon as you see the Queen come out, that is your clue that you are into Fool’s Mate. How
do you protect yourself from Fool’s Mate? You are attacking this Pawn; you can either
move the Knight out to protect it. Now I cannot get to this Pawn as you can see or you can
move the Queen out to protect it; that’s another way. You are protecting this piece. You can
move the Queen here to protect it and I can’t take you because look if I do take you, check,
you take me, check, I take you, this is trading pieces, check, you take my Bishop and you
nail one piece up on me by having the Bishop so I’m not going to do that. The only advantage
that comes out here is once you move the King by the way, you cannot castle; remember we
talked about castling being the defensive position. So you move something and you gain
something when you play the game and basically what happened in this last segment, is I prevented
Fool’s Mate but on the other hand, I put the King out of position although I had to give
up a piece for that. Sometimes people will sacrifice pieces to get the King out of position
because that puts the King in a weak postilion and easier to get him with the Check Mate.
Okay, thank you very much.
