A normal mix up made by chess beginners is they will regularly see an opening to attack, and act speedily. The premature attack advances to catastrophe for the amateur since it could probably make chances for the rival to win or get leeway.

What Is Premature Attack?

A premature attack is a move (typically at a young hour in the event), that catches a unimportant piece for what appears to be a great explanation around then. The move is ordinarily causing without to be considering the potential destiny conclusion, in this way, bringing about misfortune.

Why a Premature Attack Happens?

Beginners who are anxious to win see openings in each move to catch one of the opponent’s pieces. They might have a demanding time centering on the “comprehensive view” of the game. When an opening comes good to go to catch the opponent’s piece, the learner jumps on the chance, and catches the piece without intuition or from dread of losing one of his particular pieces.

The beginner might improve the mentality at a young hour in his chess playing days that he ought to ambush to any detectable degree expenses. Getting however many “small” triumphs that could be allowed at the outset appears to be the right thing to do, but that would be not constantly the case.

The premature attack might moreover happen when the beginner feels that he’ll have a chance at capturing the queen promptly in the game. He could look ahead to capturing the queen while absolutely overlooking the potential move of his opponent following the reality. Once his turn is made, the opponent goes in for the execute!

Step by step instructions to Stay away from Premature Attack

There are a few routes to maintain a strategic distance from making this lethal slip up. Chess is an amusement of system, recall? Making a winning methodology frequently incorporates going on what appears to be a stupendous chance.

Each and every time you identify it favorable to catch a rival’s piece, think again. Look ahead to the conceivable following move of your opponent. Make a whole play in your psyche that could happen. In the event that it looks just as your opponent would be able to get the upper hand following your attack, then don’t do it.

Rather than making a premature attack, utilize the move to basically development one of your pieces. Let the attack be until you feel undeniably sure that you would be able to complete a terrific move or prevail over with your following turn. You would be able to astound your rival by not being quick.

Chess is beyond doubt one of the oldest and most played games in the world. Chess breaks all intellectual, age and languages barriers and can therefore be enjoyed by people from all corners of the globe. In an age where old traditions are quickly being replaced with new and adventure packed activities, it is surprising that tens of thousands of people learn chess each and every year.

For many, chess is some boring old game that is played by people with massive IQs. This is far from the truth. Chess is very easy to learn, and the best part is that it can be played on different levels. Beginner players for example can play with other beginner players and get the same amount of excitement and enjoyment from the game as two grand masters would if they were locked in battle.

Some of the great benefits of learning chess include:

  • Chess is exciting. It is tremendously exciting to plan a trap and wait with bated breath as your opponent unwittingly plays into your hands.
  • Chess teaches patience. Strategies and tactics take time to execute. Not all strategies will pan out, and as a result all of your hard work will need to start again.
  • Chess can be learned. Unlike many social sports, you do not have to be a “natural” to play chess well. A player becomes better as they learn new tactics and strategies.
  • Chess is really cheap. Most chess software is free. Chess boards are cheap. There are no ongoing running costs.
  • Chess improves your life skills. It is not hard to draw parallels between chess and every day life. Chess requires a player to think about each move before it is made. So does life. Chess has setbacks. So does life. Chess requires you to plan for the long term. So does life.
  • Chess teaches independence. Players must think on their own. They must make their own decisions.
  • Chess breaks age barriers. Chess can be played equally as well between adult and child.

Unfortunately for chess, many TV shows and movies have portrayed chess as a difficult game. Once this myth has been set aside, many people often find that learning the rules of chess is actually a simple task. There are only six different pieces, each with their own special moves. The game simply requires you to force your opponent’s King (one of the six pieces) into a position where he can be captured. All in all, there are only a few rules, and these rules can be learned in a matter of hours.

The real challenge with chess is learning tactics and strategy. Tactics are short term moves that lead to long term gain. Tactical moves are used together to form a strategy. Tactics are specific moves that place a piece in a specific place on the board either to attack or defend an area of the board. Tactics are learned as a player becomes more experienced. Strategy is learned once a player has a sufficient arsenal of tactics to form a strategy. This may all sound very complicated, but the beauty of chess is that tactics and strategy are learned only as a player becomes more experienced, and therefore the initial steps of learning chess are not slowed down. As you become experienced, you will find that learning new tactics is extremely rewarding and satisfying. This is why people continue to play chess throughout their entire life.

What is important to conclude from the above article is that anybody can learn chess. Chess starts off easy and only becomes harder as your opponent gets better.

Hi there all chesslovers!

I have noticed that Owens-defence is played a lot again! It have not been “in the mode” for a while, but it is a strategical way of getting far away from all the bookish games. And, besides, it serves it purposes as a “surprice” in blitz-games. It is, perhaps wisely, said that one should not ananlyze these blitz-games with that much attention, but let’s give it a short shot!

Lets take a short look at how to meet this opening as white – and this from the side: “you have to make a functional plan”. At least somewhat “functional”.

My opponent is not to be mentioned but the game took place in a VIP-tournament. I, “mikethepike” played white.

Conclusion: Well, not that many. But the “stealthed” bishop is quite funny – for white that is.

Greetings from Sweden in springtimes!

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.

  • The aim is to play chess against the computer with increasing levels of difficulty and with a limited number of hints that are given by a chess tutor.
  • Also included are thousands of training positions such as different types of endgames, tactical combinations and chess problems (mate in 2,3,4 and more).

I personally use this freeware software. It helps me a lot. I improved my rating after playing games with Lucas.

  • The computer uses different chess programs (so-called chess engines) of various strength. The user starts playing against the weakest engine at first. Initially the engine plays with limited strength but as the user wins more games the engine will be given more calculation time and its strength will improve. Eventually the engine will reach its maximum level of strength and if the user continues to win he will be passed to the next stronger engine and so forth. And even if you consider yourself being close to winning the next chess world championship, I can promise you that the included chess engines won’t run out of steam that quickly. The strongest engines included in this program (such as Rybka and Stockfish) will give a professional top ten world ranking chess player a real run for his money.
  • To overcome a level you must win against the engine twice, once with the white pieces and once with the black pieces. With every won game your personal point score increases. The higher the level the more points you receive for a won game. The engines are arranged in groups. Each group contains engines of similar strength. The basic rule for engines is, you have to collect plenty of points against lower rated engines until to can play the stronger engines. In detail this means each group of engines has a minimum required point score. If you want to play against an engine of a particular group your personal point score must have reached at least the group’s minimum point score.

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 🙂
