Due to the growing popularity of the series "The Queen's Gambit," we have temporarily changed the name of our most challenging opponent Ann to Beth (like Beth Harmon, the protagonist of "The Queen's Gambit"). Ann will return in a few days. Chess is played on an 8x8 board, where rows from 1 to 8 are called "ranks" and columns from "A" to "H" are called "files." The square labeled "A1" should be black. The player with the white pieces places them on positions 1 and 2, while the player with the black pieces places them on positions 7 and 8. Pawns are placed on positions 2 and 7. The remaining pieces are placed on positions 1 and 8 in the following order, starting with column "A": rook, knight, bishop, queen, king, bishop, knight, and rook. The player with the white pieces makes the first move, and then players alternate turns. The game can end in the following cases: When the opponent's king is threatened with capture and the opponent has no move to prevent it, you win. This is called "check." When the opponent resigns.

When the opponent takes too long to make a move. On this page, each player has 60 seconds for each move and a total of 15 minutes for all moves before the game is lost. When a player's king is not threatened with capture but has no legal moves, the game ends in a draw. The game also ends in a draw in the following cases: Neither player has enough pieces to checkmate the opponent. The same position on the board repeats three times. Fifty consecutive moves have passed without a pawn being moved or a piece being captured. The players agree to a draw. Six pieces move as follows: The bishop can move any number of squares diagonally. The rook can move any number of squares along the same column or row. The queen can move any number of squares along the same column, row, or diagonally. The knight moves to the nearest square that is not in the same column, row, or diagonal. The knight moves in an "L" shape: two squares in one direction and then one square perpendicular.

The knight is the only piece that can jump over other pieces. The pawn moves one square forward, always towards the opposite side of the board. On the first move, the pawn can move two squares forward. The pawn can only capture diagonally in the direction of movement, not along the line. The king can move one square in any direction, except for castling. The king can never be in check. When a player makes a move in which one of their pieces threatens to capture the opponent's king on the next move, it is said that the king is in check. The player in check must make a move that removes the check: this can be moving the king, capturing the threatening piece, or placing a piece between the king and the threatening piece. A player who has no legal move outside of check loses the game (including checkmate). A player can be simultaneously checked by several pieces and must remove all checks simultaneously. A player cannot remain in check or make a move that puts their king in check.
