Position Tactics -- Position 4

This is actually interesting, because for the most part, it doesn't result in what you think it might result in.

If you do a search on any reasonable database the positional fragment of the knight on f7, the King on e8 the Queen on d8 and the rook on h8, you will find a number of games, a large, large quantity of those games are not a simple fork of the Queen and Rook, but the beginning of a knight sacrifice of some sort.

However, the threat and the positional tactic remain perfectly valid. And so it gets added to the list.

The included is a version of the Traxler Attack in which white eventually wins.
