Luring

White to move Position after move 0 0 half-moves after last pawn advance or capture” />

In one of the previous lessons we have learned about the double attack. But sometimes your opponent will be not so cooperative that he is positioning his pieces in such a way that you are able to attack two pieces at the same time.

With a supporting Knight on c7, d6, f6 or g7 instead of on g4 White should be able to make a successful double attack with the move Re8+.

While looking at the position of this diagram and realizing that White is also able to attack both the King and the Queen at the same time if the Queen can be lured to e8 it becomes rather clear what’s the right move for White.

 

Like the double attack can be seen as a capture in two, this kind of luring can be seen as a double attack in two.
