"Ein König steht im Scach, wenn er im nächsten gegnerischen Einzelzug oder in
einer gegnerischen Serie von zwei Zügen geschlagen werden könnte."

A king is in check if he could be captured in a series of 1 or 2 moves by the
opposing side.

E.g. 3.Sc4+? would be a check because after that move, the black king could be
captured by the 2 move series Sd6-Se8.
