Forks

 The fork is a tactical motif in chess in which a piece simultaneously attacks two enemy pieces. All pieces can fork. Forks are most often used to win material - the opponent usually doesn't have time to defend both pieces - the usual response is to defend the higher value piece, leaving the lower value piece free for capture.

  Unsuccessful forks - these can be defended against.
