A pawn fork is a pawn which attacks two pieces at the same time. I played a game of speed chess at chess.com in which I used a pawn fork to win the game. My opponent, Jimflys of the USA, played white. Here are the moves of the game along with my commentary:
1. e4 c5
2. Nf3 Nc6
3. d4 cxd
4. Nxd4 d6
5. Bb5 Bd7
6. 0-0 Nf6
I am ahead in development with three developed pieces versus two for white.
7. Nc3 g6
8. Bg5 Bg7
9. Bf4 e5
White makes a big mistake. I fork his bishop and knight. A better move for white is Be3.
10. Nxc6 bxc6
Now I have a double attack.
11. Be2 exf4
12. f3 Qc7
I want to protect my pawn on f4.
13. Bd3 0-0
14. Ne2 d5
My move is necessary to protect the pawn on f4.
15. exd Nxd5
16. Qd2 Ne3
My knight is dangerously close to the white king.
17. Rf2 Rfe8
18. c3 Rab8
19. b3 h5
20. Rc1 h4
I want to weaken the white kingside with my h-pawn.
21. g3 fxg
22. hxg hxg
White resigns. His rook cannot avoid capture. The key to victory in this game is my pawn fork on move 9. After this devastating move, white is unable to recover.
