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:
- 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.
- 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
- 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.
