Pin party

If your opponent doesn’t succeed in defending a pinned piece properly, you may be able to take it.

But there is another means of profiting from a pin. Since a pinned piece can’t move, it is often unable to defend other pieces.

This makes pieces that are protected by the pinned piece extra vulnerable. You can easily win them.

During a pin party, you can use an existing pin to capture another piece. When capturing, you can simply ignore the pinned piece. It is a true pin party!

What do you have to do?

Win material by exploiting the fact that pinned pieces make bad defenders.
