When the King is in check, can we have an extra turn to protect it?

Dear visitor,

Only one move or turn per player is allowed during a Chess game.

When your opponent checks your King, you need to move it out of check on your very next turn by interposing one of your pieces between the attacking piece and your King or, capturing the attacking piece with your King or any other piece, or moving your King out of check to a safe square.

If none of the above is possible, your King has been checkmated and the game ends.

Thank you for visiting us,
