Pins & pitfalls (2)

In this lesson you have to be careful not to play too fast. Because it's another lesson full of trick exercises.

You can win material by attacking a pinned piece. There are always two possibilities: one is the right solution, the other is a dupe. In the trick solution the opponent can escape your threat by defending with a counter-attack.

To avoid falling into a pitfall, you have to check carefully that your opponent can't counter-attack.

What do you have to do?

Win material by attacking a pinned piece.
