    there is this chess game type where the player who first manages to give 3 checks wins the game. i wonder if there is a forced way to win (for white?!). does anybody know something about this?
    also would anyone like to play a game like that, maybe via pm or so?

    If the player who first manages to give ONE check wins, then white wins in 5 moves. Actually white can win in 5 moves by moving only the knights.
