Geometry - the kingdom for the Knight

The following two studies are awesome examples of chess geometry. In positions in which geometry occurs, pieces are placed in such a way that the knights can take advantage of that and create beautiful forks, nets, double attacks etc. The puzzles are beatiful but not that easy, so take your time. Enjoy.

    Knights are where I dominate in chess, so this was real fun. 

    I find my opponents overlook their importance.

    Those puzzles were really cool. When you know the theme they are really easy though.

    I thing in puzzle one White may have draw by repeating of position if Black continued to try and force White to exchange to gain forking chances. All and all nice practice for calculating chances

    Those were fun!  Both those queens could sure run!  But they couldn't hide.  Laughing

    I see these 2 puzzles caused some confusion. Why is the queen not taking our free piece? Well the answer is because our knight always forks the queen and king.

    Everything clear? :)

    I agree, i could also make "beautiful" geometry if my opponent's queen never took the undefended piece i was attacking her with...

    could someone please explain what i have missed in these puzzles?

    I didn't quite get the purpose of the lesson, its more just knowing where a knight can go and how to manipulate pieces to go to a more beneficial place for a fork. Also why couldn't the queen just take the piece that was chasing it in both puzzles? or was that just to show how to get the piece to get into position?
