In chess, zwischenzug (German for "intermediate move") is a common tactic that occurs in almost every game. Zwischenzug is where Player1 threatens Player2, and instead of Player2 countering the direct threat from Player1 (which Player1 expects) Player2 plays a move which poses an even more serious threat to Player1. Player1 must then counter the threat from Player2, which will ideally change the entire situation to Player2's advantage. This image is originally from xboard. ...

A quite common situation is a white knight jumping to c7, thereby threatening both the rook at a8 and the king at e8.
The German zwischenzug means "intermediate move"; it is a common tactic that occurs in almost every game: instead of countering a direct threat, which the opponent expects, a move is played which poses an even more devastating threat, often an attack against the queen or the king.
Often it is necessary to throw the opponent's position or tempo out of balance by first sacrificing some material, sometimes to be regained with interest a couple of moves later.
