Pin (3)

Forcing the pin:
Sure enough, our opponent will be aware of the dangers that pin may cause, and will try to avoid it. But if we are precise enough we can give the game the course we want:
Peredy,Ferenc (2311) - Malanca,Adrian (2247)
Budapest FS02 IM-B Budapest (2), 02.02.2003

Black first activates his rook: 30...Rd1+! 31.Kh2

And now forces his opponent’s king to step on a “mined field”:
31...Rh1+! 32.Kxh1 Qxh3+

For the hyper important tempo Black sacrificed a whole rook, and was awarded with mate. 0–1
