Double attack by a knight

Knights are great at double attacks! A double attack by a knight is called a knight fork. Knight forks are very common. Since knights do not move in a straight direction, a knight’s fork-trick often comes as a surprise. But if you practice a lot, you’ll get better at spotting them in advance.

What do you have to do?
Use a knight to attack two pieces at the time and win material.

Ask yourself these two questions:

  • Are there any loose pieces?
  • How can I attack them at the same time?
