Defending against pins (1)
In the previous lessons you have practised with pins. Pins force enemy pieces to stay where they are to prevent the loss of a more valuable piece hiding behind it.
Defending against a pin can be done by means of:
- interposing a piece between the pinner and the pinned piece
- capturing the pinning piece
- creating a counterattack
- adding defenders to the pinned piece
Study the examples to understand how it works.
What do you have to do?
Prevent material loss by a successful defense against a pin.
