    When your opponent has an advantage, you should accept the necessity of defending patiently and limiting your aggressive moves. Still, you have to remain vigilant, looking for opportunities to go on the offense. Keep in mind that, when it is not justified or poorly planned, Counterattack can lead to quick self-destruction. Defend patiently and smartly and, when opportunity arises, don't miss it. Often this could be your only chance! Most common types of the Counterattack are Strike in Center, Strike on the opposite side of where your opponent is attacking, and Strike against the attacking piece(s). Flank attacks have much greater chances of being successful when the center is locked. Thus Strike in Center that leads to it's opening is often the best way to launch a Counterattack.
