Defense: protecting

Sometimes you cannot move a piece that is under attack.
If that’s the case, you have to do something else to defend it.
As you know, protecting can also be an option.

Look at the example to see how this works.

What do you have to do?
Defend a piece that is under attack.
First, look for the piece that is threatened. Which of your pieces is in danger of being captured?
Then, think of a way to protect this piece with one of your other pieces.
If you do this correctly, your piece will not be taken.
