Absolute Chess Skewer Attack:
Part of the Chess Skewer Attack, Tactics Guide
An Absolute Skewer, is one where the forward piece being attacked IS the enemy King.
It would be in "Check" and so would have to be moved. By moving, it uncovers a Pawn or Piece (the target is usually a Piece) in a straight line behind, which will be captured.
The best type of Absolute Skewer is where the Queen is directly behind the King!
