Tactical Patterns | Interference

An Interference Tactic occurs when you block the role of an enemy piece by obstructing it’s path. Here’s an example:

1.Rd4, white obstructs the role of black’s queen.

Diagram above: The primary role of the black queen on c3 is to defend against white’s checkmate threat, Qg7#. White obstructs the black queen by playing Rd4! Black is forced to give up their queen in order to prevent checkmate, I.e. 1.Rd4 Qxd4 2.Qxd4.
