Count & capture (2)

This is another lesson about counting attackers and defenders and about winning material if there are more attackers than defenders.

Start by finding the attacked piece. Then, count the number of attackers and defenders. Do the attackers outnumber the defenders? Then you can gain the piece.

You must be very careful about which piece to capture with first. If you make a mistake you pay the price: in this lesson, one of your pieces is under attack as well!

What do you have to do?

Capture a piece that is insufficiently defended and gain material. Think closely about which piece you capture with first, or you will lose a piece that is under attack.
