                    1. Very well explained video lesson by IM Asaf Givon. I like this lesson. I think that it will help me. Most of the time I have an advantage in my games but I miss powerful moves because I could not recognize the weaknesses of my opponent. You should understand why there is a tactic and not only apply checks captures and threats.
