fork is a tactic move whereby several opponent pieces are directly and simultaneously attacked.
A previously unreleased Abalone exercise.
EAT YOUR PEAS, DAISY!
You play stainless steel (grey) versus vegetable (green).
Your turn to move. Enjoy your meal! q: A good fork! This is what you need to catch three of these runaway little green balls ^^
If you play the best possible move, how many tines will your fork have?

The purpose of this new post category is to give you some material to practice on whatever your level.
Unlike abalone problems, these abalone game situations may not be endgames but just middlegames, and endgames may not have a single solution.
White to move. Who will win?
Test it with some friend or against an AI and tell us the outcome (:
