Attacking Chess: The Castled King

Happy Easter! In this special day, I am proud to share with you a lecture on a topic that many beginner and intermediate players want to learn. How do we get to attack against an opponent's king that has castled? How do we utilize the features for a successful attack against such position? The truth is that these questions require a very concrete approach and good timing if we want to be successful. The video lecture below provides a good advice and concise suggestions on what concepts you should keep in mind when you are attacking the opponent’s castled king. Enjoy!

    Yes, this is the uncastled king.  Is there a video on the castled king?  (This one is very good though!)
