Can you take a checked chess peace?

In normal chess rules, the only piece that can be "checked" ... put in check ... is the opposing King. Technically, the King is never actually "taken", but rather put in checkmate; a state in which it is in check and no legal move to get it out of check exists. The game ends at this point, so there's little point in actually "taking" the King.

If you leave your king open in chess can the other person can jump or steal it?

Steal? No, the king is the only piece you can not have "taken" or "killed" or "stolen" in chess. If the king is in a position where he can be taken then you are in "check" , you have to then move out of danger (out of "check" ). You are not allowed to stay in check. Your next move after someone puts you in check MUST be to move your king out of check or place another piece in the way. The point of the game is for your opponent to put your king in a position where any move the king makes (in all 8 directions ) puts your king into a position of "check", then it is called "Checkmate" and you lose.

What is stalemate situation in chess?

A stalemate occurs when your opponent's king is in such a position where it is not actually in check, but the only legal move left to your opponent is one where the king puts itself in check. This situation commonly occurs when your opponent has nothing but the king left or nothing but the king and pawns, which are blocked. The only piece that can make a move to another square is the king, but if that move puts his own king in check, it is a stalemate. Think of a stalemate in terms of what a checkmate is. Checkmate is when you put the other player's king in check in such a way that there is no legal move the opponent can make to get out of check. Stalemate is when you put the other king in a non-check position, but it cannot move anywhere without placing itself in check. This is usually a very frustrating mistake and often happens just as you are about to checkmate the king, but overlook the stalemate possibility by losing sight of all your own pieces.

This is impossible. There is no way, following the normal rules of chess, that this could occur.

You also cannot make a move that would put yourself into check, remember.

Can kings in chess put other kings in check if the other king is two spaces away?

No The rules state that one may never place his own King in check. Because a King can only move one square, it must be adjacent to a piece in order to attack it. But the act of moving your King adjacent to your opponent's King would be putting it in check. And so the move is not allowed. If your King is two squares away from your opponent's King, it is not attacking it, and thus it is not putting the other King in check. --CM
