Pin & double attack
You already know: a pinned piece is a worthless defender. And you're going to make clever use of that in this lesson. This time with a double attack.
Take a look at the examples to see how this works.
In the first example, White creates a double attack from a square that is defended by the pinnend piece (the pinned piece cannot defend else the king would be in check).
In the second example, White attacks a loose piece plus a mating square that is defended by a pinned piece.
What do you have to do?
Win material by exploiting a pin with a double attack.
Follow these steps:
- Find the pin;
- Find the piece/square that is protected by the pinned piece;
- Create a double attack:
* from a square 'protected' by the pinned piece.
* on a piece/square/king PLUS a square/piece defended by the pinned piece.
