Home * Chess * Tactics * Decoying

Decoying is a sacrificial chess tactic to force a valuable piece, most often the queen and/or the king to capture on a poisoned square, so that it becomes co-target of a double attack, often a knight fork, which finally results in a tangible gain of the whole combination.
