Yes, he really plays a good ♘ and fork!

May-05-14  Mating Net: Stick a fork in Holm, he's done. I'll bet Sundstrom had a blast playing this game.
Feb-20-15  Oliveira: A brilliant example of the trap I've christened "The Promised Land". Black got royally forked.

  sachistu: According to Tidskrift for Schack, June 1912 cover page, Black was David Holm. I'll submit a correction slip.

  wwall: Nice fork, but White could have knifed his way to a mate after 13.Qd5 (threatening 14.Qxf7 mate) 13...Ne5 14.Nh7+ Kf5 15.g4+ Kxg4 16.Qe4 mate. Now Black is forked.

11...Kg6 had to be the losing move. Black should be able to hold with 11...Kg8 12.Qh5 Bxg5 13.hxg5 Kf8.

  TheAlchemist: Ok, so this is probably because I've seen the meme one too many times, but I immediately though of "The rude Sundstrom".

  GrahamClayton: The White knight on d6 simultaneously attacks six Black pieces (b7, c8, e8, f7 f5 and c4) - Are there any serious games where a knight simultaneously attacks 7 or 8 enemy pieces?
