How Piece Coordination and Pawn Structure give you the Initiative?

Comments: 1

A few days ago, I shared with you an instructive video lesson from our guest coach IM Valeri Lilov about effective planning in the middlegame (early-middlegame, to be more precise). If you missed it, you can find it here.

Today, I’d like to share with you the second part of that lesson. This time, Lilov will explain to you about the four different stages of the chess game, which are:

1. Opening stage
2. Early-middlegame
3. Late-middlegame
4. Endgame

He will explain how these four stages differ from each other, and why it is important for you to consider each of them differently and play differently according to the situation. Also, continuing with the previous part of this lesson, he will explain to you the importance of (pawn) structure and piece coordination, and how they give you the initiative.

P.S. Did you find these two lessons useful? Please, write in the comments below what you think about the importance of structure and piece coordination throughout a chess game. 🙂
