The fork

Target audience: >1400

The fork is a tactic which attackes two or more pieces of the opponent gathering material of him (ecause the opponent can only rescue one piece at a time). Almost always knights are used to fork because they can jump to a positition where they can attack many pieces and cannot be counter attacked.

Notice every piece can fork and every piece can be forked!
