    Nice and simple.:)Just need to see that you can pin the knight and attack the bishop.

    I saw the first step and was fixated when calculating on removing the lsb to get the desired fork, but then just played it out and realized the sad position of the KS rook...

    really the "easy" etc comments are tiring and annoying...I think people should actually follow natty94blumenau's lead and just write something along the lines of what she writes when she's happy she got it right.

    It doesn't help when you get fixated on pushing your knight to f3 to win the queen.

    "It doesn't help when you get fixated on pushing your knight to f3 to win the queen."

    It does, because that helps you find the first move. Pin the knight while attacking the bishop. It can save itself and defend the fork, but that gives you the tempo to attack the trapped rook.

    Great combination of tactical devices.

    To be honest I dislike this sort of thing on here. If you are not showing the timer, then you will inevitably go for the Queen.

    It smacks of yah boo trickery rather than a training exercise IMO

    It is not so much attacking the bishop, but to pin with the threat of the knight fork. As with all the tactic setups, the main thing is recognising whether you are going for material gain, mate or draw.

    And yes, the only reason to make that threat is that you can follow up with the attack on the rook.
