Chess Lingo I've heard of hog on 7 ( rook on 7th rank ) , blind swine ( rook on 7th rank with nothing to capture ).Family fork ( knight witch fork king and queen ), but last night I came across a new one, " Devils Crossroad" anyone know the board set up for this one? Or any other chess lingo?.....Thomas

I think A devil's crossroad is a piece that is pinned several times. Then again I could be wrong.

Family fork? A knight that attacks king+queen+rook is doing a family check. Blind swines? David Janowsky spoke of blind pigs, meaning two rook on your opponent's 7th rank, wreaking havoc.

I know one In russian: "Pshol v obzhornij rjad", something like "went to an eating line" in english. Only "obzhratsa" in russian slang means more like -- eat like a pig (a lot and in an ugly fashion). Anyway it is tha same as hog on 7.
