In this series of moves, the bishop and queen are used to get your opponent into checkmate in just 4 moves. For your first move, move the pawn in front of the queen forward by 2 spaces.

Now, depending on your opponents next move, you can zip the queen straight up to his pawn, capture it and get the king in checkmate!
