    The main goal of chess is to checkmate your opponent’s King. The King is not actually captured and removed from the board like other pieces. But if the King is attacked (“checked” ) and threated with capture, it must get out of ceck immediately. If there is no way to get out of check, the position is a “checkmate”, and the side that is checkmated looses. A player may not move in to “check”, for example, moving in to a direct line with your opponent’s Rook if there are no other pieces between the Rook and your King -this is an illegal move since the Rook could “capture” the King, which is not allowed .
