Lessons from Chess 3

Ambush from Afar

Was being attacked by opponent, with the enemy Queen looming near my King. I got a Knight protecting me and was baited when my opponent dangle a Bishop with my Knight's kill range ... when I moved my Knight away, His Queen came right in front of me and I got checkmated

what I didn't realize was that he got another Bishop right at the far corner of the chessboard .. protecting his Queen, making it useless for my King to attack his Queen and His Queen checking all my possible moves ...

Lessons Learnt

1 A backed up Queen is a great way to checkmate
2 Be aware of all the opponent's pieces
3 Be ware of easy bait ... even if it's careless mistake by the opponent
