Chess Kit Training Tactics Knight fork

Knight fork is the most popular tactical theme aside from pin. Knight fork is a special case of the double attack -an attack on two units by a single unit.

Fred deals with 72 such problems ranging from fairly simple setting, through subtle preliminary stage setting for fork, to deadly knight fork combinations that come at the very end of combination.

Chesskit recommends that besides seeing the fork, it is important to see how effectively other pieces pave way for the execution of fork.
