A fork in the road

Knights love forks, and it is really satisfying to use them, especially if there is ribs or steak at the end! You feel in control when you do them, and if your opponent is the one threatening the fork, you always have to be wary of them.

Here is a very tactical game that I played where my rooks were on the end of the prongs, but my opponent had chosen the wrong fork, and the mistake was deadly:

White is threatening two different forks, Nf7, and Nxe6

White has just forked your two rooks, but, I had a suprise in store for him!
