    Actually, Nate (almost certainly) can’t DO that. If he’s in check, he must get out of check before he can check her. Which it doesn’t look like he did.

    Actually Nate could put Gina into checkmate simply by taking the piece that had him in check. I’ve been on the receiving end of something like that a couple of times.

    Wcorvi – he could have moved a piece in front of the king to block the check, or even moved the King to force the mate.

    Or he could move a piece to block the check that even opens up a piece for checkmate or the moved piece puts the opposing king into mate.

    Way to go Nate. You did not let your opponent distract you from the game, nor did you let her intimidate you. Again, you came through under pressure to succeed. However, if you would apply yourself at least 50% of the time, you would not need to be under pressure.

    Sorry, but by attacking the chess piece that has him in check, it is possible that opened up a line of attack that might be a checkmate.

    I have seen traps like that.

    Moving out of check and mating at the same time is not only possible, but not even especially unlikely. Opening yourself up for a check is an ideal way to lure your opponent into making the penultimate move that completes your trap.

    It is possible to checkmate your opponent like that, but it is fairly easy for many people to not make that mistake. If Gina really is good at chess, she would have been able to avoid a mistake like that. Still a funny comic strip. She had it coming!
