  • Awesome, but Impractical: Any fork that threatens more than two pieces; only one can be taken anyway.
    • Use a Knight to fork a King and a Queen with no immediate threat to said Knight. That's not impractical, that's a huge blow to your opponent. Even if you do lose the Knight in the process, it's still a very uneven exchange.
