The Skewer

In Chess, a skewer is an attack by a long range piece of multiple targets on the same rank, file or diagonal.

In the following position, my opponent grabbed a "free" pawn, allowing the skewer of three targets.

Don't forget to tell in comments of a favorite skewer that you unleashed in one of your games (and show the position or game).
