Today we have an interesting subject called “Initiative”. I’d like to recall a famous quote, “Only the player with the initiative has the right to attack”, made by the first undisputed World Chess Champion, Wilhelm Steinitz.
Indeed, initiative plays a key role in a chess game. Playing chess without the initiative is like trying to drive a car without acceleration. 🙂
So how important is initiative? And how to keep and maintain the initiative?
Our guest coach IM Boroljub Zlatanovic is back with another video lesson for you. The lesson is called “Initiative in chess”.
