Today, we are going to see one of the most impressive chess games ever played – it was the game between Fabiano Caruana and Garry Kasparov in the Ultimate Blitz Challenge 2016, where the veteran was playing Black. The beauty of this game is that Kasparov, one of the greatest masters of attack, demolished Caruana with an ideal attacking game!
Even though it was a blitz game, where you usually have very few seconds to think, Kasparov played perfect chess – he delivered a destructive kingside attack against Caruana, and he did that by following only 2 simple things. 🙂 What are they?
I’ll tell you exactly that in this instructive video lesson.
So here are the two simple, yet really powerful ideas that Kasparov used in his game to deliver a successful attack against Caruana:
1) Always try to bring your pieces towards the opponent’s king – it’s a very straightforward rule. If you want to checkmate your opponent’s king, you need to bring your pieces toward it.
2) Hit the opponent’s weaknesses and occupy them – weaknesses are those pawns/squares which are not protected by a pawn. Because, it’s the easiest way for you to invade into your opponent’s territory.
