A fork is a chess term for when one piece simultaneously attacks two enemy pieces or pawns. This often results in a loss of material for the side receiving the fork. A "royal fork" is when the queen and king are both attacked at the same time.
i want to look at fork in a much complex situation. i can try but idonot know how?
thats a good move ; ]
I've used this attack infinite times!
it is a awesome thing to use. I have used it a million times. Though it is hard to get in that position.
Forks are nice...
In the diagram black can move his king to defend the queen... why hasn't anyone thought of that?
you can, but it will be an exchange with 6 points of advantage for white
I REALLY APPRECIATE THESE FORKS.THEY ARE SO HELPFUL.
I am the victim of these too many times.
Could we have whole games from wence the knight fork position comes from;maybe you could add pins and skewers/x-rays?
I fixed it!
