Here we are again with
a couple of activities

As usual one for beginners
and the other a little bit more complicated, although every week I am
delighted with your accuracy and good level.

Let's start with the
easiest but you can try both

I promise to answer
according to my possibilities.

We should know that
it is very important to write down the moves we make with our pieces and try to
do the same with the pieces of our opponent:

**Algebraic notation**(or

**A.N.**) (o “Sistema algebraico” in Spanish) is a method for recording and describing the moves in a game.

We
use a system of coordinates to uniquely identify every single square On the
CHESSBOARD

**Algebraic notation**exists in most of the language and is based on a system developed by PhilippStamma (very interesting person form the beginning of the C: XVII. He used the coordinates letter (lower case-minúscula) from a-h (the 8 columns and following by the numbers from 1-8 the 8 lines.

For
instance a1 is the black square where the white Rook is placed

Then
the pieces are named with the first letter of their name.

p
(0) for Pawn

R
for Rook

N
for Knight (K is for the King, the most valuable piece)

B for Bishop

Q
for the Queen

K
for the King

In
Spanish and other languages there are different initials because of the name of
the pieces:

P
or (0) for the Peón

T
for the torre

C
for the Caballo

A
for the Álfil

D
for the Dama

R
for the Rey

NOW the CHALLENGE

Can
you send me the A.N. (Algebraic Notation) for this imaginary Game.

I
know you can be very creative and you can send me your solution in a video,
message, song...

Let’s
go with the second challenge.

Here
you are a Chess Game:

In this challenge we
have to check mate with the white pieces

There are a couple of
hints:

You can get it in
just two moves.

Our Knight is the
main character of the action.

First we have to
think about that the Knight is protected by the Bishop e4

Have you noticed the bishop is in front of the blck K...?
