This week I had an after school enrichment class and it was a chess class. I noticed my friend and classmate Brenden was taking the same class as me. I asked him if he wanted to come to my house and do a blog post about chess. He said, "yes." I was so happy!
When we got home we set up a chess mat and took some pictures and started playing.
Here are the pieces are moved around the mat.
Here, Brenden and I are playing.
Some black pieces got out!
Some white and black pieces got out!
This is a checkmate called the rook crusher. The black king can't move up because the rook is blocking him. He can't move down because the other rook is blocking him. He can't move sideways because the queen will get him. Checkmate!
Here is another way to do the rook crusher. The moves are the same but it is set up in a different position.
