In this game https://lichess.org/a3X0jdl6GlCR things took a gruesome turn for me when the enemy had the audacity to skewer my queen and castle.    My queen had to run, and then I had to wave goodby to my castle.   
My righteous indignation was aroused, and I was looking for ways to exact painful revenge from the enemy.   I couldn't find any forced sequence to punish the enemy, so I settled for a swindle, hoping the enemy wouldn't notice..   So when my queen had to run, I planted her on the g-line, thereby pinning the g7 pawn in front of the castled enemy king. Then the enemy bishop took my castle.  And then, in stead of me taking the enemy bishop, my horse standing on d2 took an enemy pawn on e4.   The enemy then fell for the swindle by retracting his bishop to safety.  That was all I needed.   My horse on e4 jumped to f6, making a royal fork on the enemy king on g8 and queen on d5, this thanks to the pin on the g7 pawn, who could not take the horse on f6. 
This nasty horse fork so discombobulated the enemy that he pushed the resign button.
Not really necessary if you ask me.  For his queen he would get a castle and a horse in return, that is 8 points for the 9 he was going to lose.  Plus the pawn on e4, that would mean that he would only be 2 points behind in material.  Still a lot of play left.
But the shock of going from 2 points up to being 2 points down, including the shock of losing his queen, was probably too much for him, and he ended it all.

Saved by the fork.

Again.

HalleluJah!!

Got another nice little royal fork, forking the king and queen:  https://lichess.org/18J7ZoXxywMp

The enemy was behaving very irritating, forcing an exchange of queens, because my queen was trapped on g2, and there was no way out but exchanging.   But then I saw that I could at least win a pawn on f2, a pawn which was protected by both his queen and king.  But his king couldn't take it, because my queen was also attacking it, and his queen taking it, would mean that he would lose his castle on h1.  Worked out beautifully. 
So I took his pawn on f2, his king had to walk, lost his castling rights, so I thought: At least I have a pawn out of this mess, and he can't castle anymore.
But then I saw that he set himself up for a nice little horse fork.   So my horse jumped forward, forked king and queen, which were standing close together, and the enemy right away surrendered unconditionally.

I love horse forks!

Well, at least as long as I am on the giving end of 'm.   After all:  It's better to give than to receive.   :)

Very nice moves, it all came together for you. A bit weak of your
opponent not to try a few more moves after the fork.

Wow, it's dead here if I don't post.   So let's correct that unfortunate situation.

I didn't play for a while.   It comes in waves.  I played so much that I got totally fed up with it, and then sometimes I don't play for months, until it starts to itch again. 

Back to the subject; horse forks.    A friendly neighborhood horse fork ended this game:  https://lichess.org/EWMcf7K53X1h

Thank God for being on the giving end of horse forks!

I played 5 games over the board games on shabbat.   The opponent also plays regularly on Lichess, has chess books, used to play in tournaments, and was far from a raw beginner.  He arrived with a very neat fold up wooden (looking, finish) magnetic chess board, on which the battles took place.

The beginning went great, I won the first two games, but then he won the next two games, so it was 2-2.   The fifth game would be the decider.  
First, true to my style, I blundered away a piece, but the opponent messed up the opportunity I gave him, and I was able to save my piece.
Then I let him skewer my queen and king, which costed me my queen, but I got a horse, bishop, and a castle in return for it, so materially I was just fine, and I managed to win that game.   
All is well that ends well.

Here another action photo of me.  You can see me playing a game with my neighbor:

And here a gruesome combination of my new reply to an attempted fried liver and a royal fork:  https://lichess.org/TNL2alBKs6Cz

The fork happened on move 7, and that was the end of it.   HalleluJah!!

I saw it coming before I played Qb1+   The opponent apparently not.  :D

And here the enemy fell victim, not to one horse fork, but to TWO (2) horse forks, one after the other:  https://lichess.org/nxkxeOs0JvkB

The first fork gained me a bishop, the second gained me an exchange, so for my horse I got a castle and a bishop, so the game was about over.  
The enemy played on to the mate, but that came only four moves later.

And here a cute little horse fork.   I didn't gain that much, I got a queen for a horse and a castle, but I forced him into the fork, and that's nice.  (or I like to think so)  https://lichess.org/dcHM5ocndbFU

The rest was a mop up operation, my queen went on a rampage, until I exchanged her for a younger model and, oh, sorry about that,  until I exchanged her for two castles, and he was left with one pawn, against a bishop and six pawns, and then he surrendered unconditionally.
Chalk up another one for the good guy.

Here the enemy lost his queen because of a trap in the opening: https://lichess.org/bRedTv5KbGYU Technically the score was even, he had two castles for my queen, but I had a horse more, but he made up the difference in pawns..    But then a sneaky horse fork relieved him of an exchange, and two moves later he resigned. 
For my 22th move I was considering putting my queen on f3 or h5.  But I thought:  "If I put my queen on f3, then I have a double attack on f7, and then there is a serious chance that he will play his castle to e7 in order to protect f7, and then the f7 pawn is pinned by my queen, because his king was behind it, and then my horse can fork king and castle on g6."  So I played Qf3, and yes, he played castle e7, and yes, then I forked him!
Two ply after me taking his castle he resigned.

Here I used a royal horse fork as a tactical tool in order to exchange pieces:  https://lichess.org/2YdZzYC3TgIf I didn't get anything out of it except that I could exchange a horse and my queen for my enemy's counterparts, but since for reasons unclear to me the enemy had blundered away a bishop, the order of the day was exchanging. 
And it looked also nicely weird, me sacrificing my queen for a horse.  :D
Considering the speed with which he took my queen, I guess he'd never seen that royal fork coming.   :)

My moves from 15 to 18 also look weird, but I had that all planned in advance.   All in all it was a nice weird game.

In this game:  https://lichess.org/XkyU9RcgI9jT I threatened a simple horse fork on move 13 on c7, forking king and castle.  The enemy saw that, and moved his king to make the fork impossible, and succeeded in that plan.   The fork on c7 was out the window. 
Unfortunately his move of Kd7, allowed me a horse fork on b6.   That fork right away ended the game.  :D

In this game:  https://lichess.org/RXoAYTuaT0Nc I fell victim to a horse fork, and had to part with an exchange.  

But after I myself handed out a few horse forks to the enemy he resigned, and everything was as it was supposed to be.

All is well that ends well.    :)

Here a nice royal fork, forking king and queen, finished off the enemy:  https://lichess.org/5yCHKfbkEJhT

I was hoping for him not to see it, and, he didn't see it.   Thank God!

A simple straight forward royal family check by means of a nasty horse fork finished of this 1889 player:   https://lichess.org/xffmGTRCd2GW
https://tinyurl.com/God-wint

That will teach him!

The inherent beauty of a horse fork does not stop to amaze me and still gives me that warm fuzzy feeling in my gut.

It goes of course without saying that that only holds true when I am the one making the fork. :D

In this mediocre game an innocent little horse fork relieved the enemy of an exchange:  https://lichess.org/HwHFP3MSc30B

The game continued for another 18 moves before the enemy surrendered.

In this game https://lichess.org/7b22Dl363uwr a royal fork decided the game.   After the fork the enemy surrendered. 

The trouble with this fork is, I had something better.   I know, it is hard to believe that there is something more beautiful than a royal fork, but I had here a mate in three, which included a queen sacrifice.   And THAT is beautiful!

Something in my head kept on nagging me about this game.  I went back, checked it, and saw it.   I opened analysis board, and yes, it was correct.  I had a mate in three, with queen sacrifice. 

That takes the fun out of this beautiful horsefork.

Incredibly beautiful. It might have taken me a whole three or four seconds to see it.

I am shocked, you won without playing a gambit.

I know this guy.  He belongs to  a religious order in which one must vow never to move the king's knight.  That's why he's only 1750.  If he could move all his pieces he'd be a GM at least.


The trouble with this fork is, I had something better.

Emanuel Lasker's advice more than 100 years ago - when you see a good move, don't just play it, look for something
better.

I am shocked, you won without playing a gambit.

I know this guy.  He belongs to  a religious order in which one must vow never to move the king's knight.  That's why he's only 1750.  If he could move all his pieces he'd be a GM at least.


The trouble with this fork is, I had something better.

Emanuel Lasker's advice more than 100 years ago - when you see a good move, don't just play it, look for something
better.


Good advice. But that advice pertains even more to Go than it does to Chess.

The trouble with this fork is, I had something better. I know, it is hard to believe that there is something more beautiful than a royal fork, but I had here a mate in three, which included a queen sacrifice. And THAT is beautiful!
Incredibly beautiful. It might have taken me a whole three or four
seconds to see it.

Bs¨d

Well, I did look at it during the game, but I thought that when the bishop would take my queen, en then the rook comes to the first row, that the king could step in the place where the bishop came from.   I didn´t realize the horse made that impossible, so I didn´t play it because of that miscalculation.   But it was nagging me after the enemy resigned, I felt I had missed something, so I checked it, and then I saw it.

Happens.
