In the past few lessons, we discussed about a couple of very interesting topics – opening traps and attack. Although it may seem that these two topics are unrelated, they both have one thing in common: tactical patterns.
That’s why we have decided to create a new chess course about it. In this course, we’ll study the important tactical ideas to win games, such as pattern recognition, hanging pieces, intermediate moves, to name a few. More importantly, we’ll also study the REASONS why chess players fall into tactics or apply them in their games.
The name of the course is “Winning Tactical Patterns” and the author of the course is IM Asaf Givon. The course will be launched on Friday, 11 September – stay tuned!
A lot of chess players ask “When to look for tactics? Why do I miss to find some tactics? How to find tactics in quiet/calm positions?”, and this might have happened even to you. A position might look really calm, but an explosive tactics comes out of nowhere! But the important question is – how to find them in your games?
In every chess game, regardless of which game you’re thinking about, there are tactics. Very often, they are kept behind the curtains such that you don’t see them, but they are always there.
In the following video lesson, our guest coach IM Asaf Givon will explain to you how to find tactics in quiet positions, with some really great examples. Watch the video lesson and get prepared for his complete course on this topic:
