22.214.171.124: Diagram explaining weakness of knight's move

In your diagram that explains the weakness of the knights move to cutting, the attack you make in the upper right corner of the board is defensible without leaving a cut (you attack the "feet" of the move). In that case if you attacked the center of the knight's move you would have a guranteed cut AND you wouldn't be caught in a ladder.

I suppose that, even though such a "vulgar" cut is strictly possible, White then is left in such an awkward shape that it`s usually not recommended. Anyway, perhaps we`ll hear more on this from minue.
