Additional Chess Terminology:
Part of the Beginner's Chess Guide (Section 3)
Capturing material is the outcome of a successful attack - but, it's NOT the attack itself.
Attacks occur when any chess piece moves to a square and, when there, it is able to capture an enemy piece, on its next turn, should the opponent not move it to safety.
Moving On: ATTACKING-PLAY TERM: Berserker (Page 2).
