2 Move Checkmate in Chess

This kind of checkmates in chess are achieved only when opponent plays desired moves. This game shows white’s checkmate. Which is possible only if white plays the required moves. So let’s understand the moves. When white starts with a pawn in-front of bishop next to king i.e f4 and black responds with pawn in-front of king to e6. The first two moves are obvious and okay but then when white makes a blunder with pawn promotion on g4, white is left with no move to defend the checkmate on Qh4#. If you understand Chess notations, here’s the exact moves to achieve 2 move checkmate.

  1. f4 – e6
  2. g4 – Qh4#

Don’t worry if you haven’t understood the chess notations above or if you can’t imagine how the checkmate is happening. I have a video tutorial for that as well. Checkout the video.
