In the game of chess, prophylaxis (Greek προφυλαξις, “prophylaxis,” guarding or preventing beforehand) or a prophylactic move is a move that stops the opponent from taking action in a certain area for fear of some type of reprisal. Prophylactic moves are aimed at not just improving one’s position, but preventing the opponent from improving their own.
