could be the END IS NEAR
When your king is in danger of being captured he
is said to be in CHECK.
ALL ELSE STOPS
ALL ELSE STOPSin order to protect the king.
There are three ways to do this....
1) CAPTURE THE ATTACKING PIECE
2) INTERPOSE ANOTHER PIECE
3) MOVE THE KING (you may not castle out of check)
If you can not get to safety..you are in "CHECKMATE"
