My eyes wander over the board, lighting up;
"Ah, yes.. I'm just glad my friend here didn't take advantage of it."
I say with a slight grin as I point out the move to my opponent, who simply groans at the lost opportunity.
"Not that one," I say evenly, looking at the board. "Can't keep thinking move-by-move, you need to plan ahead."
I point to Alec's black bishop, indicating a possible move three squares to the upper right of the board for his perspective. "First move, there. His knight is now open to an uncovered attack from your rook, and unless he wants to needlessly lose it, he has to move here," I say pointing with my finger not quite touching the pieces. "Now your white bishop can put him in check without risking being killed, and the only logical place to move would be there, leaving a perfect opportunity for your queen over here..."
I tap the board in the location I was indicating, making an audible click
. "Three way fork. Rook, knight, queen, and the queen is also in a skewer in front of the king. He'd have had to sacrifice the queen, as well as either the rook or the knight. Can't execute it now though, you'd have to put yourself in check." I stand back up, starting to move back to the corner by the plant.
