A few days ago, our guest coach GM Levan Aroshidze prepared a lesson for you about the “Exchange Technique” in chess. If you missed it, you can watch it now here.

Today, we’ll be continuing with the second part of the lesson. Before that, you need to understand the philosophy of the exchange technique clearly.

The exchange technique is not a simple TRADING of pieces. It occurs where you EXCHANGE the good pieces of your opponent, thereby leaving him with the bad ones.

To keep it short, the exchange must be beneficial for you (or at least, bad for your opponent). In some cases, you have to exchange some of your pieces in order to avoid losing them completely.

Now, let me provide you with a practical example:

Black to play

How would you play here as Black? You should just not guess one move. You have to figure out a plan and calculate all possible variations. After that, you can watch the second part of the video lesson to find out the answer.

Did you know that the greatest players of the USSR have said: “You can just win a game by correctly made exchanges”? 🙂

As I don’t wish to drag out this article, you can watch the video lesson below:
