Chess P.E

  1. 1. CHESS CHESS
  2. 2. Figures
  3. 3. The game Each player begins the game with 16 pieces: one king, one queen, two rooks, two knights, two bishops, and eight pawns. Each of the six piece types moves differently.
  4. 4. The game. Pieces are used to attack and capture the opponent's pieces, with the objective to 'checkmate' the opponent's king by placing it under an inescapable threat of capture. In addition to checkmate, the game can be won by the voluntary resignation of the opponent.
  5. 5. The game A game may also result in a draw in several ways, where neither player wins. The course of the game is divided into three phases: opening, middlegame, and endgame.
  6. 6. Pawn The pawn may move forward to the unoccupied square immediately in front of it on the same file, or on its first move it may advance two squares along the same file provided both squares are unoccupied ; or the pawn may capture an opponent's piece on a square diagonally in front of it on an adjacent file, by moving to that square . The pawn has two special moves.
  7. 7. Knight The knight moves to any of the closest squares that are not on the same rank, file, or diagonal, thus the move forms an "L"shape: two squares vertically and one square horizontally, or two squares horizontally and one square vertically. The knight is the only piece that can leap over other pieces.
  8. 8. Bishop The bishop can move any number of squares diagonally, but may not leap over other pieces.
  9. 9. Rook The rook can move any number of squares along any rank or file, but may not leap over other pieces. Along with the king, the rook is involved during the king's castling move.
  10. 10. Queen The queen combines the power of the rook and bishop and can move any number of squares along rank, file, or diagonal, but it may not leap over other pieces.
  11. 11. King The king moves one square in any direction. The king has also a special move which is called castling and involves also moving a rook.
  12. 12. Chess games may also be played with a time control, mostly by club and professional players.
  13. 13. MY OPINION I think it is an interesting sport to be played in family, to compete in tournaments or to play when you are bored. It is a mental sport too. This type of sports help you to train your brain and that is so good. During 3 years I took part in the chess club and I don´t like it but I´m truly bad at it.
  14. 14. THE END
