Special attacks: pins (2)

You already know that it can be smart to attack a mating square. Pins are good at that, too.

The example shows a piece being pinned against a mating square.

What do you have to do?
Look for a piece and a mating square that are lined up.
Found those? Now place your own piece on the same file, rank or diagonal and pin the piece.
