23 ( +1 | -1 ) Knight Forks?Does anyone have a good example of a killer knight fork here on GameKnot? I'm trying to find a couple of short games (15-30 moves) with forks I can use as illustrations for some starting players. Thanks
30 ( +1 | -1 ) ...I have seen a knight fork of Queen and piece that delivered Mate at the same stroke ...unfortunately, have no idea of where it was from, now. But will keep my eyes open in case I run across any good ones. I don't suppose GM games are much help in this area.
39 ( +1 | -1 ) Knight forksHi bhidragon! Have you looked at an earlier thread of mine which I posted a few months ago? You may have to go back a few pages but I have called that particular game "Knightmares". The thread is also titled "Knightmares" - you will find forks galore in there - unfortunately they are in the endgame and not the opening but may be suitable for beginners to learn the power of this piece.
54 ( +1 | -1 ) This one was more fun for meNumerous threats and counterthreats of knight forks by both sides through the game, but the final knight fork of the white Queen and a Rook at moves 19 and 20 decides the game. game Also an illustration of how the effects of a fork can sometimes by avoided by a counterattack. See moves 13-18. White apparently miscounts. Again this is a game that is decided by mistakes made by both sides, so it illustrates things to be avoided,.
