Chess Tactics Teaser - Absolute Pin AttackAn Absolute Pin is one where the victim has been positioned so it stands in front of its King, when the attack takes place.

Regardless whether the victim is a Pawn or the more-valuable Queen, it CANNOT move! It must remain absolutely pinned against its King, until either the King moves (breaking the pin); the attacker is captured; or, if the attacker captures the victim and it's possible to capture the attacker.
