    I‘m sorry.I am not very good at Englishi.
    I donnot think かと is a Japanese word.It just means "doubt".
    It's not a word, it consists of the two seperate particles か (question, doubt, "or") and と (quotation particle). So you could translate it like

    It's a checkmate, hm? That's what it seems to be.
