Knowing your openings will help you to successfully achieve the opening goals and be prepared. and ready for the middlegame,Chess Endings,The goals in the endgame are. 1 To checkmate the opponent s King,2 To promote a pawn to help achieve goal 1.
while preventing your opponent from achieving the same goals. Knowing a variety of chess ending themes and patterns will help you to press home the win in a. superior position and give you a better chance to draw in an inferior position. Chess experience, The strength of your chess play depends largely on your decision making process Your decision. making process is refined and improved over time through gaining experience by. 1 playing chess,2 studying chess related material, Experience is a valuable source of chess knowledge that draws from your memory of games. previously played either by yourself or by other strong players Analyzing grandmaster games. critically allows you to tap into the experience of the great players Analysing your own games. allows you to determine any weaknesses in your play and allows you to take steps to correct. The role of chess visualization, Your knowledge of chess plays a significant role determining how well you can play However. your knowledge relies substantially on your ability to calculate Improving your chess. visualization skill can help to improve your calculation effectiveness. Chess strategy training, Chess strategy refers to the plan you devise for the position How often in your chess games do. you reach the point where you feel Now I am not sure what I should do next The plan you. finally decide on will reflect your understanding of the nature of the position Thus the first step. in deciding on your chess strategy is to evaluate the position to the best of your chess knowledge. The image illustrates the most important aspects that should be considered in order to evaluate. the intricacies of the position on which you will base your chess strategy. King Safety,Chess strategy King safety, An unsafe king is generally the greatest weakness a position can have.
Typical elements that weakens the king s safety, 1 Any weakness or absence in the pawn shield in front of the king. 2 Fewer defenders than opposing attackers in the area near the king. 3 Lack of centre control gives attacking pieces easier access towards the unsafe king. 4 A king that delayed castling for too long unless the centre is blocked. Tip Since the safety of the king is so important it is one of the main principles of chess strategy. during the opening stage of the game The other important principles of chess strategy during the. opening are effective development of the pieces and your share of control in the centre. Chess strategy Pawn structure quality, The quality of the pawn structure can usually be judged by the following factors. 1 How it supports and affects the mobility of the pieces. 2 how dynamic it is how easily it can change, 3 the presence of weaknesses like some isolated pawns and. 4 the squares which have been permanently weakened by pawn moves. If possible weaknesses in the pawn structure should be fixed before they become permanent. Tip Weaknesses in the pawn structure is only relevant if the opponent can attack them Often. you can have some form of compensation for a weakness in the pawn structure which might. well outweigh the disadvantages thereof,Chess strategy Piece quality. Piece quality refers to the quality of the role that a piece plays in the position as well as how well. it co ordinates with the other pieces Some determinants of the quality of the role the piece plays. 1 Mobility The amount of squares available for the piece to move to gives an indication. of its mobility The more squares it can go to and the number of targets it strikes the. higher the quality of the piece, 2 Flexibility How easily can it change its role Pieces near the centre are usually more.
flexible than pieces on the flanks and therefore have a higher quality in this regard. 3 Stability How easy is it for the opponent to exchange or remove a piece from its. square Pieces that can t be easily removed have a higher stability value. 4 Importance of the task Ideally a piece would perform both an attacking as well as. defending role simultaneously In some cases a piece would perform a very important. defensive task freeing other pieces for more aggressive roles. Piece quality refers to how well a piece is performing compared to its potential but piece. quantity refers to the number of pieces on the board Having a material quantity advantage is the. most important advantage you can achieve if the opponent does not have sufficient. compensation for the material deficit While it is often hard to obtain a material advantage. against stronger players achieving superiority in the quality of your piece placements can give. you something to work with,Chess strategy Square control Space. Tip Space advantage refers to one side controlling more squares of the board than the other. side Since this extra space will naturally increase the mobility and flexibility of your pieces. their quality will increase It follows that the space advantage is one of the most important chess. strategic advantages you should play for,Chess strategy Square control Center. The importance of the control of central squares lies predominantly in the fact that it enhances. the quality of your pieces enabling them to fulfill more diverse roles and increasing their. mobility This ultimately means that your position is more flexible when you control the centre. and it will be easier to create or take advantage of weaknesses in the opponent s position. The situation in the centre is often the greatest determinant of the chess strategy you should. follow in a game The typical strategies follow logically from your observation of the situation in. the centre for example, 1 Closed centre When the centre is blocked and cannot open easily you have more time. to organize your pieces The play will occur on the flanks of the board Your chess. strategy would then be to optimize the placement of your pieces and prepare to occupy. any file that may open up In blocked positions control of an open file is often a useful. 2 Open centre An open centre demands that your chess strategy is to have very active. pieces In a situation where the centre is open but your pieces are placed passively you. will lose quickly Minor weaknesses are often not so important in open positions since a. well conducted attack would decide the outcome of the game before the weakness can be. exploited by the opponent A position with an isolated centre pawn is one example where. the player with the weak isolated pawn gains compensation in the form of open lines. for his her pieces Many pawn sacrifices are also based on this same strategic principle. 3 Dynamic centre This simply means the situation in the centre is not yet clarified In this. case your chess strategy should firstly be to clarify the situation in the centre Taking. offensive actions on either of the flanks whilst the centre situation is not yet clarified is. often a mistake If you attack on one of the flanks before the centre situation is clarified a. well timed counterattack in the centre could well prove your pieces to be offside and. unable to sufficiently defend the weaknesses you created in your own position. 4 Mobile centre A mobile center is where you have a pawn chain containing at least two. united pawns and your opponent has a maximum of one pawn in the center In this case. your chess strategy should be to advance your center pawns and create at least one. passed pawn in the centre, 5 Fixed centre In this case the pawn position in the center is held in a closely locked grip. often consisting of a pawn on each side directly opposing each other The attacking side. stations his pieces in and around the center and occupies the central field to the greatest. possible extent The defending side seeks to drive the enemy pieces away from the. central field or to exchange them off, Tip Memorizing annotated grandmaster games is a great way to improve your understanding of.
chess strategy principles,Initiative, Tip Initiative refers to the ability to continually make threats against the opposing position This. implies that the opponent has to respond to the threats and cannot find time to make the. improvements he she would like to make to their position The initiative could be only a. temporary advantage and the player with the initiative must play very accurately in order to. make the most of it,Chess tactics training, Effective chess tactics training consists of more than simply solving 100 s of chess tactics. puzzles The image suggests the main focus areas of an effective chess tactics training program.
