Fake Checkmate?

In my last game happened a strange situation, I received a CHECK and the app gave A CHECKMATE. Still was possible to capture the bishop was give me check.
What happen? Is it a app problem?

I assume you are talking about this game.  The problem is that the bishop move is a double-check (bishop and rook are both checking the king), so the king must move and he has no squares to move (hence the checkmate).

When it's a double check you have to move the king... can't move the king => checkmate.

Of course. Sorry for the post.

Anyway, remember what i said abouve "When it's a double check you have to move the king... can't move the king => checkmate.". This will help you calculate!


Sometimes you will deliver mate with 1 sec on the clock, if you know a pattern like the one above. In chess, the more patterns you know the LESS you calculate.
