A first-time experience is always very special for us. In this vein, I conducted the first-ever RCA webinar on the topic “Art of Defense” (LINK).
Although I explained a lot of ideas and discussed defense in that webinar, many students still ask me for lessons about defense. Therefore, I thought I should provide you with what you have asked for. 🙂
The next RCA webinar, “Webinar in Defense”, will be conducted by IM Valeri Lilov on Saturday, 18 July at 10 a.m. New York time (check timings here: LINK).
Normally, when you have a good position, you need to put an end to your opponent’s attack, wake up, and counter-attack. But when your position is worse, you usually play defensive moves, as you’ll not have even a second to ‘breathe’.
The important thing you need to remember is that defense is an essential part of chess, just like attack. You need to get rid of the myth that defensive moves are passive moves.
Defense is just an interesting opportunity for you, where you’ll even get the chance to improve your positional play.
To discuss this topic in detail and to teach you the essentials of defense in chess, Lilov will be conducting the webinar for you on 18 July. To know more details about the webinar and to sign up, click the image below:
