Checkmate - the capture of the king - is the ultimate goal in Chess, arising when the king is threatened with capture, with no way to respond to that threat by either moving the king, capturing the attacking piece or interposing a defending piece between the attacker and the king.
The checkmated player loses.
a false checkmate is when someone calls "checkmate" in a chess game and if you can move without getting out then it is a false checkmate. If they call it you get to go 2 times. :) enjoy your chess game!
Depends on what you mean. Overall Checkmate the opponents King but throughout the game gain material and space to help achive checkmate.
Checkmate is a possible outcome for a game of chess.
The word checkmate in chess comes from the Persian phrase "Shah Mat" which means: 'the king is dead.'
Checkmate your Opponents King

The last move in chess is a checkmate. A checkmate is when you have trapped the king to where it cannot escape in anyway. Then, you win the game.
