No chess player would like to be put in a situation where he has to find a strong defense against the opponent’s attack. But the truth is that we all have to learn how to defend successfully, even if we don’t like it (unless you want to lose the game).
In order to defend successfully, you need to know some important ideas and rules that strong players know. What are these rules? That is exactly what Angelos Kesaris will share with you today.
But before getting into the video lesson, take a look at this position below.
