Removing Defender
  • Defender refers to a piece that protects another piece (or a square)
  • Removing the Defender leaves the piece (or a square) it was defending vulnerable to capture (or attack)
  • In this example, black Knight on d6 is defending b7 pawn. Without this black Knight, white Queen could capture b7 pawn to checkmate.
  • White can remove the Defender (black Knight on d6) of b7 pawn by playing white Knight to f5 (Nf5) to fork black Queen and black Knight.
  • If black responds by capturing white Knight with black Knight (Nxf5), then white would checkmate with Queen capturing b7 pawn (Qxb7#). If black responds by running black Queen away, then white would remove the Defender by capturing black Knight on d6 with white Knight (Nxd6+), and then do the same checkmate with Queen (Qxb7#).

Removing Defender
  • In this example, white Knight on b3 is defending a1 square. Without this white Knight, black can move Rook to a1 square (Ra1+) to check and creates a power skewer to capture white Queen on h1.
  • Black can remove the Defender (white Knight on b3) of a1 square by capturing it with the black Queen (Qxb3).
  • If white responds by capturing the black Queen with white Rook (Rxb3), then black moves Rook to a1 square (Ra1+) to check and creates a powerful skewer to capture white Queen back. If white responds by not capturing the black Queen, then black just gains the white Knight for free.
  • This is a fantastic sacrifice of black Queen to gain a Knight.

Removing Defender
  • In this example, white Knight on f3 is defending d4 square. Without this white Knight, black can move Bishop to d4 square (Bd4+) to check and creates a power fork to capture white Rook on a7.
  • Black can remove the Defender (white Knight on f3) of d4 square by capturing it with the black Rook (Rxf3).
  • If white responds by capturing the black Rook with pawn (gxf3), then black moves Bishop to d4 square (Bd4+) to check and creates a powerful fork to capture white Rook back. If white responds by not capturing the black Rook, then black just gains the white Knight for free.
  • This is a fantastic sacrifice of black Rook to gain a Knight.
