I just have a question in the Chess game.

If I did not say check to the opponent's King because I am not used to say that and my opponent does not know about this check and he makes another move, what I have to do?

Do I have to tell him about this check or attack his King?

Please answer me quickly.

Thanks a lot for this site.

Dear viewer,

If you put your opponent's King on check, you failed to announce the check, and your opponent moves another piece because he did not notice the check, you must speak up and let him know he is in check and his last move should be voided and positioned to its original place.

Next, your opponent must move his King out of check by moving it to a safe square, interposing a piece between his King and the attacking piece or capturing the checking piece.

You cannot take his King if he fails to move his King by omission since it is an illegal move.
