A very common question that we receive as chess coaches is what is the quickest way to win a game of chess? Now, everybody's idea of the game of chess, that's it's a very long, strategic, thought out game, but surprisingly enough there is a way to win a game of chess in only two moves. Now, when we're looking at the two move checkmate or also known as the foolsmate, it's going to take a sequence of bad moves by the opponent to fall into this trap of only two moves. Now interestingly enough the two move checkmate is going to occur on the black side checkmating white in two moves. So white is going to open up and play a move, F-4. As we can notice in this position by white moving their pawn to F-4 they've opened up their king's diagonal exposing the king and creating a weakness. Black can simply open up and make space for their queen and bishop and this is black's first move. White makes their second move further opening up the king's diagonal and allowing for black to make their second move which is to bring the queen along the diagonal to H-4 and checking the king. Now in chess when we're in check we look for three ways to get out of check. It's either to move the king, to block the check or to capture the checking piece. In this position the king has no safe squares to move. There are no pieces that can interpose or block the queen from checking the king and there are actually no pieces that can capture the checking piece or capture the queen. So what has just happened is black has checkmated white in two moves and just to once again show you, white opens up making the move to F-4 opening up the king's diagonal. Black plays the pawn up opening up the queen to make a direct threat on white's king. White plays G-4 and black responds by bringing the queen out and making a direct threat to white's king and leaving white with no option to run, block or capture and ending the game in only two moves.

Some people think chess games are long, slow and boring but they can actually be very quick. Here is an example of a three move game of chess. White starts by moving the center pawn in front of his king, he does that to free, more pieces, black does the same. Now a frequent beginners move here is to play the queen to h5, white brings up the queen, which develops a piece and he is attacking three pawns, although only one of the pawns is actually unprotected. Best for black here is to develop his knight, and protect the pawn, but he can make some pretty tragic mistakes here. He could play the king to e7, and then after king goes up to e7, which is kind of crazy, you're bringing your king towards the enemy, when he wants to be behind his own pieces, and he also blocks his own bishop and queen, preventing them from moving. White can go queen takes e5, check to the black king, the black king cannot go two squares and capture the queen, nobody can go to this square and block. And wherever the king tries to run, he will still be in check, checkmate. So, three moves, game over, try not to let it happen to you.

This has only worked twice in many years of playing chess. I wouldn't recommend trying this if playing against an experienced opponent. Corrections: Italian Opening* Move pawn to h3 before NxE5 if you wish to be more cautious.
the fastest checkmate you can get in chess!
