Pins More ECO Aced Fredthebear's Test
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

A pin can take place along a rank, file, or diagonal occupied simultaneously by three or more units; one aims through two opposing units. A pin occurs when a long range attacker (queen, rook, or bishop) aims through two opposing units, with the less valuable unit threatened with capture in front of the more valuable unit. The less valuable unit is caught in the middle of a pickle between the attacker and it's more valuable teammate. A short range attacker (king, knight, or pawn) in unable to set a pin.

An Absolute Pin of a lesser unit that shields the king cannot move out-of-the-way by rule (the king cannot be exposed to check).

A Relative Pin means the lesser unit in front can move, but should not move else loss of material is the result.

A Terminal Pin is against a checkmate threat, such as a unit pinned to the back rank mating square.

To take advantage of a pin, maintain the pin as long as possible. Don't relieve the pin prematurely by capturing too soon. Force the opponent to make an effort/use a tempo to get out of the pin.

If the opponent remains stuck in the pin, then pile up on the pinned unit with addition attackers, especially attackers of less value such as an advancing pawn. However, in a practical sense, when a bishop sets a pin along the diagonal, the rooks are often used to pile up on the pinned unit to arrange discovered attacks because the rooks can get there quicker than a less valuable unit. This was the case in Paul Morphy's famous Opera House game, where Morphy maintained an Absolute Pin by his bishop and piled up on the pin with rooks after 0-0-0.
