Not sure if there's a technical term, but we usually say that person got 'blocked'. Perhaps there's a more clever way to say ...ScrabBlocked?

What does a good chess player think about while playing?

A good chess player thinks about the game he is playing. A plan. A good chess player thinks about the plan he or she has formulated to attack the opponent. Too many players play without a plan on what to do and how to do it. They just move pieces with no thought about setting up the opponent for the kill. This requires thinking several moves ahead of the one about to be made. For example, a good player might notice that the opponent's King is in danger of a back rank mate, but that a piece of the opponent blocks the way. The good player figures out a way to capture or get the blocking piece to move out of the way. The plan might require making at least two moves to do this but if successful in getting the blocking piece out of the way, the opponent's King is mated.

If a player crossing the center line while playing volleyball is it a faul?

If the complete foot or hand lands in the opponent court while the ball is still in play, then it is a foul; and, a partial foot crossing while landing after hitting the ball is not a foul. Also, a player making the second contact can cross below the net but outside the 30ft court of the opponent, or outside the pole hoisting the net, and hit the ball so it comes to his/her own court for a teammate to make the third contact; this is not foul; make sure that the second contact player does not go through the opponent court while doing so; he/she is allowed to only cross outside the opponent court.
