Relative Rook Pin, Example
- Overview -

Chess Pin Attack, Relative Rook Pin example.The Pin Attack: Relative Rook Pin by White's Re1 (red square).

The Victim: Black's Bd4 is the pinned Piece, though going by the common material valuation system, both Knight and Bishop are worth 3 points each. Based on that, neither is more valuable than the other.

The Result: In this case, the pin isn't very strong. Black can take advantage of the Rook's greater vulnerability against a Pawn and play ...c7-c5. White isn't going to capture now!

In this example, Black moves his Bishop to d4 - don't ask why, it just did, okay ...

Anyway, that rather conveniently allows you to see White's Rook move to d1 and Relatively Pin Black's Bishop on its spot ...

If Black were to move his Bishop away, White's Rook could/would go straight up the board, capture Black's Knight and "Checkmate" Black's poorly-positioned King.
