When the general is in danger of being captured by the enemy player on the enemy player’s next move,the enemy player is said to have“delivered a check”. If the general’s player can make no move toprevent the general’s capture by next enemy move, the situation is called“checkmate”.We only use 4 kinds of pieces introducing as follows:General:the generals can move and captureone pointeither vertically or horizontally andcannot leave the “palace” unless the situation called “flying general” (see the figure above).“Flying general” means that one general can “fly” across the board to capture the enemy generalif they stand on the same line without intervening pieces.Chariot: the chariots can move and capture vertically and horizontally by any distance, but maynot jump over intervening piecesCannon: the cannons move like the chariots, horizontally and vertically, but capture by jumpingexactly one piece(whether it is friendly or enemy) over to its target.

Horse: the horses have 8 kinds of jumps to move and capture shown in the left figure. However, ifthere is any pieces lying on a point away from the horse horizontally or vertically it cannot moveor capture in that direction (see the figure below), which is called “hobbling the horse’s leg”.
As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern
The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
