A king is in check when it is under attack by at least one enemy piece. A piece is unable to move if it would place its own king in check (it is pinned against its own king) may still deliver check to the oppos­ing player.

It is ille­gal to make a move that places or leaves one’s king in check. The pos­si­ble ways to get out of check are:

Move the king to a square where it is not in check.
Cap­ture the check­ing piece (pos­si­bly with the king).
Block the check by plac­ing a piece between the king and the opponent’s threat­en­ing piece (Just 2014), (Pol­gar & Truong 2005:32,103), (Burgess 2009:550).

If it is not pos­si­ble to get out of check, the king is check­mated and the game is over (see the next sec­tion).

In infor­mal games, it is cus­tom­ary to announce “check” when mak­ing a move that puts the opponent’s king in check. How­ever, in for­mal com­pe­ti­tions check is rarely announced.
