Black’s queen is forced to depart, leaving the bishop at e7 undefended. The deflection and decoy ideas are most frequently encountered in conjunction with a sacrifice. Diagram 19 Psakhis – Machulsky, Vilnius 1978 White to move 1. Rd8! A deflection and a pin all rolled into one. Black resigned, since there is no defense to the threat of 2. Qxf7+. On 1. … f6 or 1. … f5, 2. Qc4+ wins easily. Our next example shows how to drive a piece away from the defense of an important square. 38. Diagram 20 Paoli – Smyslov, Venice 1950 Black to move 1.

Bxh7+ (a discovered attack) and then 3. Rxe6 with a material advantage for White. 2. Bc6!! Another discovered attack, but the important point is that the queen at e7 is pinned in both a relative (if 2. … Qxa3, then 3. Rxe8 mate) and absolute sense (2. … Qxe1+ is illegal). Let’s look at a few more examples of pins at work. Diagram 28 Brundtrup – Budrich, Berlin 1954 White to move 47. 1. Bc5 The Black queen is pinned, but Black has a trick. 1. … Bb6 A cross-pin! 2. Qf4+! Another exploitation of a pin, and this time it is final, because on the next move 3.

White to move Can White capture the Black queen? At first glance this seems to lose, because after capturing the queen the Black pawn gets to f2 and there is 61. apparently no way to prevent it from reaching the queening square. But the World Champion saw more deeply into the position! 1. Rxf2! gxf2 2. Rxf5!! Kxf5 3. g4+! The pawn advances with check and frees up the g2-square for use by the king, which can then handle the advanced pawn: 3. … Kxg4 4. Kg2 And now it is Black who must give up, because White’s a-pawn will soon become a new queen.
