Cross-pins (1)

'Pen', 'attack on a pinned piece' and 'a pinned piece is a poor defender' are forms of pinning that were covered in the previous level.

The above forms were covered separately, but in this lesson they all reappear in a single move. We are introduced to a special form of the pin: the cross pin.

What should you do?

Win material or mate thanks to performing a cross pin.
