After I lost my queen I played on, after all I got a castle and a horse for it, so I went down only one point:  https://lichess.org/LS6pb5FEgVIa

Then, at the end of the game, I made a nasty horse fork which netted me a full castle, and it was me, even without my queen, who had a comfortable material advantage.   Then, two moves later, the same horse forked both king and queen, and the opponent resigned.

While looking at the above game again, (without Stockfish) I see that I went through the eye of the needle.  First, on move 40 I played Be4, and that was a big blunder, because the castle could just take the bishop, because the pawn that protected it was pinned by the queen on the king.  I saw that right after I moved, but fortunately the opponent didn't see it.    Then when I made the first fork, same story.  I forked king and castle, but the queen could simply have taken the horse, because the bishop guarding it, was pinned on the king by the castle.  Also this the opponent didn't see.    Me neither, until after the game.

Just another blunderfull game.

The above "win" gave me another 4 points, bringing me to 1996.  I'm wondering; how is it possible to make it to 2000 with such rotten play??

Here a horse fork finished off the game:  https://lichess.org/kYXhFsbQ4qz9

My opponent was an 1829.   1800'ds are really too strong for me, but nowadays lichess doesn't give me the option to exclusively play against people at least 200 points weaker than me.     Who said life is easy....

In this game too I was knee deep in the smelly stuff, I lost my queen, an oversight, and suddenly there was nowhere to go any more.   But I made sure I got a horse and a castle in return, so the damage was limited, but still I had the bad end of the stick.

And then suddenly; I see it!   Not just a horse fork, but a beautifully forced horse fork.   The fork was made on move 27, but I started making it possible on move 25, by driving his king into the corner.   After that I checked him with my bishop, which he was forced to take, no other place to go, and with that he set himself up for the fork, which hit him on the next move, after which the game was over.  

After that fork I heard angels singing.    The smell of holiness was in the air.   And intense feeling of gratitude overwhelmed me. 

I humbly and quietly shout out:  HALLELUJAH!!!

This game ended with a horse fork:  https://lichess.org/xlz1smkst5Et The horse caused a family check, both the king and the queen were attacked with one jump of the horse, and the king was far away from the queen, meaning the enemy wouldn't even get a horse in return for the queen.

He did the wise thing, and resigned.

Horse forks are terrible things.

Here a family check, the horse forking the king and queen, decided the game:  https://lichess.org/giE2fYFQmRe2

The enemy wanted to see the fork happening, so I obliged him, and then he resigned.

Life is good when you are on the good end of horse forks.  :)

Once during a tournament, the opponent of Nimzowitsch took out a cigarette case and put on the chess table. Nimzowitsch hated cigarette smoke and called the director and filed a complaint.
The director said, "He has not lit a cigarette and there is no smoke. So your complaint is noted but it is not valid."
“I know”, Nimzowitsch replied, “but he threatens to smoke, and you know as well as I that in chess the threat is often stronger than the execution”.

Threats are nasty things, but the most nasty threat is the threat of a nasty horse fork. In this game: https://lichess.org/eMCvcAwSoHAo I was on the good side of such a threat. After I sacrificed a castle in exchange for a bishop and a pawn in front of the enemy king's castling fortress, I got this nice position in which after a check I might get this nasty horse fork. I was not totally sure I would get this position, because, as always, the possibilities were too many for my feeble brain to oversee, but the sacrifice looked good so I invested a castle, and hoped and prayed for the best.
Thank God, I did get the best, and the only acceptable way to get out of the check would leave him wide open for a gruesome fork upon his king an queen. I admit, there were a few possibilities for him to avoid this fork, one was by blocking the check with his queen, after which my castle would take his queen. Another option to avoid the nasty horse fork was to push the resign button, which was the path that my opponent took.

Chalk up another one for the good guy!

Here another example of "The threat is stronger than the execution":   https://lichess.org/FDdCive5VY6g

My horse attacked his castle and his bishop.  Not so dramatic, because the castle could move to b3 and then protect the bishop. 

BUT; with that move he would set himself up for a horse fork on d2. 

So there was no fork yet, but the threat of the not yet existing fork was enough to make the enemy press the resign button.

Horse forks are terrible things.....

Amazing how often horse forks decide the game.

On my level a horse is a lot stronger than a bishop, because of those sneaky forks which pop up all over the place.

The irony is, in the above game the enemy saw on move 39 that I was threatening to make a fork on f6, forking his king and castle.  In order to prevent that he moved his castle aside, and so prevented the fork on f6, attacking his king and castle.  HOWEVER, with that move not only did he prevent me to make that fork on f6, but, he also gave me the opportunity to make another fork on e7, forking his king and queen.  

Oops!

Isn't chess incredibly funny?

Sometimes anyway.

Here I had to sacrifice a bishop in order to make my horse fork:  https://lichess.org/yKEQLVY2F9TX On move 27 I removed the protection from my bishop which was under attack by an enemy castle, in order to defend a pawn which was under attack.  But I had already seen that if the castle would take my bishop, then he would set himself up for a horse fork, so I was hoping that the enemy was thinking that I was just blundering, and so he did.  He threw his castle upon my bishop, after which I happily forked him with my horse, and won the exchange.

It was not so strange that the enemy thought I was blundering, because this was one of my more blunderful games.  On move 24 the enemy gave me the option to take one of his horses for free, but I just didn't see it, I was to preoccupied with winning a pawn right next to that horse which was standing there en prise.   Happens.  I think that that blundering is not too much of a problem, as long as I win with it.

Anyway, the horse fork came through for me.  Again.

That reminds me of one time I was sitting in a bar, and a girl started to talk to me, and at one point she asks me: "Do you like to spoon?"  So I say, "No, I'm more into forks."   She asks: "How do you do that?"  I say:  "With a horse."   She looks weird at me, and walks away. 
Who can ever understand a women?  I guess chess is more for men.

A horse fork is one of the most beautiful things in life.  

One of the most horrible things in life is a beautiful royal horse fork which never saw the light of day.    That's what happened to me in this game:  https://lichess.org/gPhRnLb0lDdU

I could make a a royal fork on move 21, forking king and queen, and only saw it after I made some inferior move.     The horror.... 

The fact that I mated him on move 30 was a very small consolation.   Missing such a thing of beauty hurts.  A lot.

Who said life is easy?

In this game https://lichess.org/XOBGdfCVAYh8 I had on move 16 an option for a royal fork, forking king and queen on d2, if only the pesky horse of my opponent on b3 wasn't protecting that square.   So I sacrificed my horse on a5, a painful decision not taken lightly, because euthanizing an honest trusty horse is not something one does lightly.  But, for the greater good, in this case the greater good being the royal fork, he had to go.  Fortunately for the horse, but unfortunate for the royal fork, the enemy refused the offer.    He must have realized that taking my free horse would have costed him the queen.  He also realized that once my horse would take his horse, the royal fork would again be on the table, so he decided to move away his queen, thereby cancelling the royal fork.   Even though he was successful in canceling the royal fork, unwittingly he set himself up for another fork.  Mind you, not a royal one, but for the enemy still a painful one, and for me a very enjoyable one.   I love being on the giving end of horse forks!
After all; it is better to give than to receive, a dictum which especially holds true in the case of horse forks.

After a long and bitter fight MahmoudMahmoudi fell victim to a nasty horsefork which was going to cost him a full castle in an endgame situation.   

This proved to be enough to make him push the resign button.

My trusty horse came through for me.  Again.

In this game https://lichess.org/BlAUHuBVckcC the enemy fell victim to a Boden-Kieseritzky gambit.  He didn't react well to it, I got the pawn I invested back, his king had to move, no more castling for him, and then he overlooked a nasty horse fork which costed him a full horse, because of which he played the rest of the game being 5 points down.  
He surrendered unconditionally on move 28.

And here the THREAT of a royal fork made the enemy push the resign button.  There was no fork, but the threat of it, him knowing is was going to come, and he was going to lose his queen because of it, made him despair so much that he threw the towel in the ring.  On move 8:  https://lichess.org/G4bCRfC588Kr

Watch out for horse forks!

And yet another one:  https://lichess.org/RFVxsaiQtfpA Before I even can begin to make the horse fork the enemy throws himself on his own sword, and kills himself by pressing the resign button.   The threat of a horrible royal fork was more than he could bear.  

The threat truly is stronger than the execution.

But then again; this is not just a threat, but a threat with a ROYAL HORSE FORK. 

Just typing out these words sends shivers down my spine.  

May the fork be with you.
