I spend my Sunday evening in my home, watching Harry Porters and the Philosophers Stone Wizard's .... and of course... i pay attention more during the chess scene.
In the scene, Harry, Ron, and Hermione play their way across a chessboard to pass the White players in a giant-scaled and dangerous game of Wizard Chess. Wizard chess is the magical variant of the classic board game in which the pieces move of their own accord when commanded by the player. When a piece is taken (destroy!), it is removed by the attacking piece.
I was curios to know the exact position and the moves. I google the scene on the net and found that the chess position was created by American IM - Jeremy Silman .

* Harry is a black bishop (on a3) . Hermione is a black's rook. Ron is a black's Knight ( on g5).
Ron (Ng5) : You understand why Harry (Ba3), when i make my move, the queen (Qc3) will take me. Then you free to check the King.
Harry: No, Ron no!
Hermione: What is it?
Harry: He is going to sacrifice himself!
Hermione: Noooo! No you can't, there must be other way...
Ron: Do you want to stop Snape to get the stone or not? Harry, to you to have to go on, i know it, not me , not Harmonie.....you!

During the final scene of the movie which show the last dinner of the school year, Albus Dumbledore, Hogwarts' Headmaster, awards Ron fifty House points to Gryffindor for "the best-played game of chess Hogwarts has seen in many years." These last-minute points help support Gryffindor's win of the House Cup! :)
