Figure[White to move]

What checks does White have with his bishop? Be4. Does the move attack anything else? Yes, it attacks and wins Black’s rook, which is loose. This position looks easy, and it is; but again, absorb the look of it for a minute. It is important to appreciate the use of the fianchettoed bishop (on the square in front of the king) to execute a fork. Later in the chapter we will see this same position again, but two moves earlier.
