Knight Forks
Compiled by patzer2
--*--

The Knight Fork is a type of "double attack." I have chosen to make it a separate category of tactics because of the uniqueness of the Knight move and the Knight Fork. Knight Forks often involve the sacrifice or pseudo-sacrifice of the Queen or Rook to obtain a material and/or positional advantage.
