<<<Whenever you see two pieces of the same color on a file or a diagonal, you should be thinking <PIN(!)> (Weteschnik).>>>

WETESCHNIK ON PINS

-- Every undefended piece (<UNDEFENDED> Black a5-queen) is a potential candidate for a pin

-- Two pieces of the same color (Black c3-knight, <UNDEFENDED> Black a5-queen) on a file or diagonal (a5-e1 diagonal) should be considered as pinned

-- Every attacked piece of yours (Black c3-knight by White b2-pawn) standing in front of another of your pieces (<UNDEFENDED> Black a5-queen) must be regarded as pinned

---

"The ρίη is extremely common ίη any game of chess. Its exploitation as a tactical device aήses as a result of the total or partial immobilisation of the pinned piece." --G. Nesis
