First of all, in an effort to give the BEST for YOU, we’re expanding our RCA Shop and we’re conducting a survey. The survey has only 6 questions and it will not take more than 2 minutes for you to complete it.
By the way, I have a ‘secret present’ for you! You’ll get the summary of the lesson “Secrets of Strong Players (Part-1 and Part-2)”! In order to get it, just complete the following survey! Please do take part in it to let me know about your needs.
So let’s get back to your ‘Chess’ now! 🙂 Have you ever defended against a strong attack successfully? What would you do if your opponent attacks you constantly? If you think, “I’ll make defensive moves and escape the attack easily!” that is NOT the right answer!
Of course, we have to defend when our opponent attacks us. But we should NOT JUST defend. You have to keep in mind the GOLDEN RULE : Offense is the BEST defense!
That said, I’m glad to invite you all to our next webinar on Saturday, 25th October at 4PM BST which will be conducted by GM Vadim Milov.
Probably, you already know him from our previous webinar “The art of exchange sacrifice”, but anyway, here is a very small description about Milov. He is a top-level GM with rating 2705 at peak, and he has won elite tournaments such as the U.S Open in 2005, and the Gibraltar tournament in 2009.
In a chess game, when an opponent is attacking, weaker players will usually ONLY think about defense. Strong players understand that you should not make defensive moves automatically. Very often you will have something more powerful to play and you should look for it.
So, if you are asked this question: How to defend against a strong attack? The best way is “COUNTER ATTACK”. Many strong grandmasters look for counter attacks at the first instance and only then think about defending the position. You must always look for the active and the best resources in any position and that is exactly what you’ll learn in this webinar!

We have a lot of students from India, and now there is a big festival there called ‘Diwali’! 🙂
Diwali is an ancient festival celebrated during the autumn season in India. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. That gives some positive energy, doesn’t it? 🙂
So here’s what I would like to say for my students from India (and I’d like to extend it to all of my students): Wish you a very Happy Diwali! May the light illuminate your house and your life! I wish you have a lot of joy from the festival, Happy Diwali!
