Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-06-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: What is the name of this situation that happened at the end of the gmae, when knight can't move since the rook is en-prise?
Oct-06-05  Severian596: This is an illustration of a pin, meaning one piece cannot move without putting a piece behind it in jeopardy of capture. Pins that involve powerful pieces like rooks and queens are the basis of many mid-game tactics. Also, pins that involve capture with check are powerful attacking tools.

Here black can almost get away with moving the knight to b5, and if white captures the rook on c8 the knight (now on b5) responds by capturing the rook on a7. However, because the white rook would capture on c8 WITH CHECK, the rook on a7 would have the opportunity to move out of danger, thus losing black one entire rook!

Oct-06-05  Severian596: Oh, and in this particular case white threatens more than just the possibility of winning a rook. The two white rooks would force checkmate in two if the night moves to b5.
