Pitfalls: Double attack (2)

In every exercise in this lesson, White can make a double attack in two ways. One works, but the other is a pitfall. It's up to you to find the correct double attack!

Black uses a counter-attack in this lesson to escape the double attack.

Take a look at the example to see how this works.

To avoid falling into the pitfall, , ask yourself these questions: 

  1. Are you attacking two things at the same time?

Yes: You have found a double attack, go to 2
No: It's not a double attack, keep looking. 

  1. Can the opponent defend by means of a counter-attack?

Yes: Whoops, you almost fell into the pitfall. Look further
No: Gotcha! Er.... Are you certain? Go to 3

  1. Make sure your solution is correct

Find the other double attack as well.
Is this indeed a save double attack? Then your answer is correct: make the move.


What do you have to do?

Win material with a double attack. Make sure the other player can't defend both of his pieces by means of a counter-attack.
