When solving combination’s we should be accurate and confident with our answer
Do not solve combination’s as a group ; solve it individually.
Because, if others have found the solution while we haven’t, then they would have a tough time waiting for us.
Most important points in solving combination’s are Accuracy & Speed .

And if you did not spent quality time (15-20 min max) on solving a good combination then you would have lost an important aspect of your training i.e Tactical Accuracy. When we solve combination’s fast we tend to lose out on accuracy which is the most important reason for doing it in the first place!!

WHY DO WE SOLVE COMBINATION’S ?

We all know that we must solve combination’s daily. Why ? Well it –

1.Help’s in development of intuition.
2.Help’s in understanding the role of the chess-pieces in a different light.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With his last move 55.Re1-d1 (diagram) White had initiated a deflection maneuver to promote his passed h-pawn.
The capture 55…Rxd1 now leads to …

A)… victory for Black
B)… perpetual check

Find the right continuation after black’s 55…Rxd1.. Is it a win for black or a draw?

Hmmm… The tournament has just finished and I scored 6.5/10. I lost my last round game from a dead draw position in time pressure and ultimately lost.

Well, In the penultimate round I was paired with a IM. I was not having any problem when paired against him. I drew that game from a clearly winning position for me.

This is the position where I took draw by perpetual checks. Because, I sacrificed my rook for a good position.

I thought why to take risk by moving any other piece and maybe I would lose. I was having  a lot of respect for my opponent I think…

Anyway highly instructive psychological lesson for me.

When I came home and I started analyzing the game where I missed 29. Nxd6, which was a clear advantage for white nearly +4 evaluation.

Well, It’s a lesson for me.

Black to play. I sacrificed an exchange earlier and after this position I was having some doubts. I hoped I can draw at the least, to save my face.

The engine played at 20 secs per move. It is a very good sparring partner.

I defeated all the previous levels and this made me to sacrifice the exchange with confidence. 

I want all of you to analyze this position. Like how Black can take advantage / initiative.

Below is the game I played. I won the game 🙂

White has many variations in the Closed Sicilian. He can play a late f4 with Grand Prix-like play, fianchetto the bishop on g3 to get into a Reti opening structure or even play a closed Guioco Piano, etc. You must look at all possible options and make sure you find decent moves corresponding to your chosen move order.

 

To help you (and myself!)I have discussed about the Closed Sicilian from White’s point of view. I have explained the key ideas and major plans for white in the videos. Have a look at the following videos and give your feedback.

Usually though, apart from the Gand Prix which can be quite violent if black allows White to launch a King side attack, white doesn’t achieve much unless he opens the center.
