Dear reader,

In this article, we continue dealing with the knight sacrifice on the d5-square. This time, we are going to see how the powerful knight sacrifice can be used in Hedgehog positions. In this article, you will find a number of typical combinations and tactical motifs.

White has concentrated nearly all his army on the kingside. A strike is in the air.
