Checkmate them, Make them resign. those are the only ones. ============================================ The object of the game of chess is to checkmate your opponent's king. Placing your opponent's king in check means that his king is threatened with being captured by one or more of your pieces on your next move. A player whose king has been placed in check has three options: move his king out of check; block the opponent's piece giving the check with one of his own pieces (note: in the case of a knight giving the check, this option is not possible); or capture the opponent's piece that is giving the check. If a player is unable to overcome the check in one of those ways, that player's king has been checkmated and the game has been lost. Often, a player will realize that his position on the chessboard is hopeless and that having his king checkmated by his opponent is inevitable. In such circumstances, that player will usually resign the game. The symbolic gesture of resignation is to lay one's king on its side.
