Forks & Skewers

Improve Your Chess Game

Home

The goal of this app is to develop your ability to quickly see forks and skewers on the chess board. Developing this skill will allow you to calculate your next move much more effectively. This is accomplished by allowing you to play three seperate drills, one for queen vs rook, one for queen vs bishop, and finally the hardest drill, queen vs knight. The drills are timed and the point is to quickly identify squares that result in you winning an enemy piece if your queen were to occupy that square.
