We're having a discussion about the proper way of moving the Chess pieces.

Is it legal to use both hands to move them, If not, which hand is allowed for moving the pieces?

Thank you.
Roger A.

 Dear visitor,

It is not legal to use both hands to move a piece.

The Laws of Chess state the following:

Article 4: The act of moving the pieces

4.1 Each move must be made with one hand only.

A player can use any hand to move a piece (right or left) as long as only one be used while moving.
