    No i think he's talking about the scholars mate, because he said THE four move checkmate, not A four move checkmate.

    Forget about the scholars mate, dodgey, it's useless.

    Seeing as you already know the "4-move mate" what is the purpose of this thread???

    Adding to what LanndonKane wrote; 'Scholars Mate' is something that only beginners are likely to lose to. Personally, if I am teaching someone chess, or advising a beginner, I always show them 'Fool's Mate' and 'Scholar' Mate' and the counter moves before actually playing a game, so that they have a good chance of gaining the initiative against anyone who plays either of these simple traps.
