Lichess Wiki

Check your opponent 3 times to win the game.

Three-Check, or simply 3-Check, is a variant on Lichess.

Quick rules[]

There is one more way of won apart from standard chess:

  • Checking the opponent's king three times

As always, you can also win by time or checkmate.


  • All the laws of FIDE chess apply. In particular, a move is legal if and only if it would have been legal in FIDE Chess.
  • If you make a legal move that puts your opponent's King into the third check, you win.
