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.

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!

Pawn endgames can seem easy to play and understand. But even in so simple positions there are many subtleties.

I’m going to show some subtle nuances in king+pawn vs king endgame.

First thing to know is the rule of the square: if the defending king is inside the square of the promoting pawn then he can stop it

Black to move just enters the square of the a pawn with 1…Ke4 and its a draw.

If the defending king is already in the square of the pawn it is important not to push the pawn but reach, with the attacking king, the so called key squares:

Look at this example: b5,c5,d5 are the key square and White to move wins easily with 1.Kc4!!

This way he gets the so called OPPOSITION, Black is forced to move away and give access to a key square

I give a sample line:

1.Kc4 Kd6 2.Kb5 Kc7 3.Kc5 Kb7 4.Kd6 Kb6 5.c4 Kb7 6.c5 Kc8 7.Kc6 Kb8 8.Kd7 Kb7 9.c6 and White promotes and wins.

So it is clear that the battle for the key squares is often decided by which side gets the opposition.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________

There are many different kinds of oppositions:

1. Normal Opposition

2. Distant Opposition

3. Very Distant Opposition

4. Diagonal Opposition

Usually all these kind of opposition will in the end get to normal oposition, allowin to fight for the key square of the pawn.

So, it looks simple but in the endgame we will look at now things are a bit more complicated.

The following position is a study published in 1906 by chess composer Drtina.

White to move and win.

First thing to notice is that Black’s king is already inside the square of the c-pawn.

So, in order to win, White has to reach the key squares (b5, c5 or d5) with his king, BEFORE advancing his pawn.

Key squares will be reached through opposition: to get a win it is important that White reaches a position with King on c4 and Black’s king on c6, (opposition) BUT…. it has to be Black’s move, otherwise the opposition is lost by White!

Let us look at a wrong attempt by White:

1.Kd2 is wrong: how should black reply? Remember the different kinds of opposition!

Analysis of this wrong attempt, and the correct solution will be posted in our next chapter…;)

Meanwhile…have fun!!!
