Threaten & attack (2)

We're going to give the opponent a hard time again.

In this lesson you always have a nice threat on the chessboard: you can capture a piece.

Unfortunately, there is a problem: Black can also capture one of your pieces.

But you come up with a solution: you are going to play a smart move that prevents Black from capturing AND leaves him no time to save his piece. You do this with a counter-attack that blocks Black’s threat.

Take a look at the example to see how this works.

Use the step-by-step plan you already know:

  1. Find the piece that you can capture;
  2. Find the piece that Black can take;
  3. Create a clever way to save your own piece and attack at the same time;
  4. Capture the opponent's piece.


What do you have to do?

Win material by counter-attacking with a blocking defense. Next, capture an unprotected/valuable enemy piece.
