A Simple Pin

Lesson of the Week

As the 2014 Washington State Elementary Chess Championships have concluded, most school clubs have come to an end for the school year. Nonetheless, a few clubs and my class at a home school resource center continue through May. This week, students are presented with a tactical exercise that strong players can solve in a second.

The knights protect each other nicely, but Black's bishop is unprotected. In addition, two White pieces target the f7 square.

White to move
