    Always attack the opponent's king and protect your own king.

    You checkmate the king

    To win at chess, put the opponent's king in checkmate. Checkmate means that, essentially, the king is trapped, and no matter where it moves on its next turn, it will be captured.

    Trap your opponent's king. Anything else?

    A chess player has to develop a strategy which does two things:

    1. Prevents his king from being captured

    2. Captures the opponents king

    The player who can best compensate for the opponents actions wins the game.

    In short the player who can plan the furthest moves in advance (allowing for possible moves of the opponent) wins. There are 32 pieces on the board and to compete at all requires thinking at least three moves in advance. So the player has to figure out all the combinations for those 32 pieces for three movers or at least the most likely courses of actions for three moves. As a player gets better they can plan further into the game, some even to the last move they will make.

    Practice if you're a noob. Practice and strategy if you're pretty good. Practice and strategy and brain power if you're a pro.
