A title of story written by an Argentine cultivator Isaac Aisemberg
Eileen
Checkmate in two moves
Explanation:
The player who announces this means that he/she has an indefensible checkmate in two more moves, no matter what the opponent does. Usually said as "Mate in two," but since this is a title, you might want to use the entire phrase.
Take it from an old chess player.
