I never understood this phrase but I have been reading it a lot lately or hearing it in videos I am watching. I know it has to do with chess but I am not entirely sure what it is referencing. Can someone help me out with this?
It is just a fancy way of saying an in between move. It comes from German and basically "zwischen" means between and "zug" means move. An example of this would be that your opponent has captured your bishop using his/her knight. Before you go to recapture the knight, you do a check. Then you go back and recapture the knight. It is basically just saying you go off course to kill two birds with one stone.
This is right. I looked this up awhile back because I wanted to know. The way I always described it was being a "tweener" move. Like you make your play, move away, then return back for execution. When done right, you can get 2 pawns back to back.
Ah okay. That make sense then. I knew it was another language. I should have just used google translate. So it is just the simple act of capture, replace, capture I suppose. I would have never known this! lol
