    Finish him, If he makes a wrong a move. Wording almost correct, but punctuation and capitalisation incorrect.

    Finish him, If he will make a wrong a move. Incorrect.

    Thanks.
    See above. Please have another try at sentence 2 using almost exactly the same words (hint: remove one of them), but correcting punctuation and capitalisation.

    Re: Finish him, If he makes a wrong a move.

    **Neither a teacher nor a native speaker.**

    All three sentences are incorrect, but if you work on sentence 2, you will have success
    (And think about the comma and the capitalization.)

    Cheers!
