Moves:
When playing as white, the goal is to utilize the weakness of F7. Move your pawn in front of your king out 2 spaces to E4. Slide your bishop out 3 spaces to c4. Move your queen out 4 spaces to H5 or 2 spaces to F3. Then move your queen to capture the pawn in F7.

  1. And then their king takes your queen

  2. Someone literally just did this to me, prompting me to search for this video.

  3. Noob here… made this move and king ate my queen.

  4. Can't the king just take me out because I'm one square away from him

  5. this works against beginners, but those who know about it can punish you severely for using it

  6. I agree with everyone, it works very nice against begineers but if you are an experienced chess player just block it with horse and pawn and now you have a better position than the threat

  7. Does the other player have to move their pieces in a certain way or is it possible no matter what that player does?

  8. Im going to be honest
    If you're willing to learn the scholar mate, you should take my tip :

    There's still hope to change your life, just dont do it

  9. Thats called the schollar mate, a strong tatic against begginers

  10. It's called a scholar mate, most people recognise this and can play against you very strongly. Rather not play that

  11. To those curious for more information: This is called the Scholar's Mate. It is a decent strategy against beginners, but it is not optimal for non-beginners. There are a wide variety of moves available for black to counter this position, and one of the big weaknesses is that white doesn't get to develop their pieces into more advantageous squares. In fact, the Queen develops too early in this case and can be threatened rather early in the game, forcing white to spend moves getting their Queen to safety rather than develop more pieces.

    This isn't a bad strategy to learn, mind you, but shouldn't really be attempted on anything last beginners.

  12. This strategy can be done differently by playing the queen to h5 before the bishop so if black trys to instantly stop your attack you can take their pawn on e5, otherwise if they play knight to c6 develop the bishop out to c4 then move the queen to f7 for checkmate or back to f3.

    GothamChess has a video explaining why this doesn't work on experienced players and how to counter

  13. this move was almost attempted on me once by a pro chess player at my school for funzies.

    jokes on them, I was TOO STUPID to fall for the trick. I don't know how this is supposed to be good against beginners as I have never seen anyone fall for this before.

    I ended up accidentally killing the queen, ruining the setup before losing anyway if I remember correctly.

  14. I think you call it "Scholars Mate!" Yeah, I have lost to this strategy… Sad. IMHO

  15. Better yet, play with black and win in two moves

  16. he’s gonna 100% try this on his chess series

  17. you should make a video on how to play insane monopoly from tabletop simulator

  18. Scholar's Mate may work against many beginners, but not for those who experienced it and especially against Grandmasters.
    It's important to develop your pieces over early mate attempts or greedy early captures.

  19. I knew it was the Scholar's Mate (go search it up) the moment I saw the title, its really effective against beginners but its really easy to counter if your opponent decides to open the kingside or does a defensive opening like e6 which blocks your bishop or even just developing their kingside knight to f6 which is a very common move can ruin it.
    Overall I recommend this against beginner players.

  20. 1. e4, e5 2. Bc4, Nc6 3. Qf3, d3 4.Qxf2#
    d3 is a blunder for not protecting an incoming checkmate

  21. Wonbo Chess HTP:
    Board: 8×12
    Pawns are not allowed there double step move option however capturing diagonal is still like normal.
    When you capture every piece (except pawns) gets 1+ diagonal movement however you can only use 1 extra diagonal move at one turn.
    Pawns are not allowed there 1+ diagonal movement if capturing.
    The game ends when a piece reaches the opponents 10th row.
    However setting the chess pieces is still like normal
    There is no castling
    Note: the rest can not move diagonal if there 1+ diagonal movement is activated

  22. People who knows how to defend the 4 moves checkmate/scholars mate : 👀👀👀

  23. The rules are the same as regular chess, except for these changes. For a refresher of those rules, check out this video.

  24. Forgot the most important part: assume your opponent isn't more than 10 years old or hasn't played chess more than 4 or 5 times in their life.

  25. the king and queen shouldn't be in the same column

  26. For anyone wondering how to stop the Scholar's Mate, after the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Qh5, the move 2… g6?! stops checkmate, but hangs the e-pawn to 3.Qxe5! Instead, play 2…Nc3 or 2…d6 to protect the pawn early. Then after 3.Bc4, play 3…g6! safely. 3…g6 also helps give the dark-squared bishop a much-needed square on g7, especially after playing 2…d6, blocking the c5 square for the bishop.

  27. The infamous scholar mate, Demolish players below 750

  28. White: e4 Bc4 Qf3 Qxf7‡

    Black: e5 Nc6 d6

  29. The only flaw is when they move knight to g6…

  30. My friend knows this scholar's mate, so i play an alternate scholar's mate when the knight instead of the bishop is the defender of the queen who captured the f7 pawn and he falls into it lol
