Are you a beginner at chess? You probably have many questions about how to play chess.

Please write as much as you can to describe your problem as detailed as possible, so others understand what you are talking about and can join the learning process as well.

Study first the lessons at Basic Chess Rules and make some effort yourself to learn the basics first, otherwise your questions are far too easy and might be outright stupid and will bore the others.

For example, avoid questions like: Can a knight checkmate the king? Of course, it can. All pieces can checkmate a king, a pawn too. Study Checkmates

After that, continue and go to Chess for Beginners.

When I started chess myself I had lots of Questions about Chess

When you ask a question then please upload a diagram or image of the position or I may be unable to understand your question. And write down the coordinates of the position!

If necessary, I will correct any errors in spelling myself later, so your text will look good.

Please, if you talk about a chess position here then learn and give exact chess notation or nobody will understand what you are talking about. Give coordinates of pieces (bishops, knights, rooks, kings, queens) first, then the coordinates of pawns.

### EXAMPLE:

Below you see the notation for the position in the diagram.
White: Rd2, Nf3, Kg2, g3
Black: Re7, Bf6, Kg7, g6, h7

R-Rook, N-Knight, B-Bishop, Q-Queen, K-King
For pawns just use coordinates ONLY
