51 ( +1 | -1 ) Re: How many moves?I assume that your opponent has some pieces on the board, rulling out a theoretical draw when there is insufficient material to checkmate your lonely king. The answer is 50 meaning 50 moves of white and 50 moves of black. Note that when a piece is taken or a pawn is moved the count starts again at zero. If your opponent cannot checkmate you in 50 moves you get a draw.
37 ( +1 | -1 ) I took him to mean unltimately??Like fi K starts on a1,,,,can move to one of 3 squares then, and every sq from there, then from there. So without rules, its infinite....or until ones arm falls off or gains in sense or starves .....or
If there is an enemy K & Q on the board tho, your K will get few moves indeed. Since with good technique he will be mated by nine opponent moves, at most.
42 ( +1 | -1 ) to DAWGIf you are talking of a king on a board by itself? The Kings position on the board dictacts how many legal moves it has . Place it in the center its has the maximium 8 moves. In the corner at a1 it has the minimium 3 moves. At d1 it has 5 moves . If talking about other, meaning you have lone king ,opponent has lone king . No moves that is automatic draw due to insufficent material to mate. If other see rules and regulations involving the 50 move rule .-BBG
33 ( +1 | -1 ) Dear LuisHow many moves with the King?,..., I need to meditate it. But due that I'm not an antifeminist, I'll give you this piece of trivia stuff: Mason made 144 moves in SUCCESION with his QUEEN, against Mckenzie at London, 1882. I think it's amazing, don't you?..."Frailty, thy name is woman!. Hamlet, Shakespeare };-)
