Hello, chess.com friends!
It’s been a hectic summer, but I am back again with the seminars. I am Dejan Bojkov, GM from Bulgaria, FIDE Senior trainer. I would like to present you my new seminar:
Chess 431 – Dynamic and Positional Pawn Sacrifice
Level: Chess 431 is aimed at players with a strength above 1800, but players with lower rating who feel stronger than that are naturally welcome.
When: Sunday 27-th of October, 2013 at 12:00 PM Pacific Time.
Format: The total seminar duration will be 2 hours and 15 minutes, with two 1- hour sessions that are separated by a 15-minute break.
Grandmaster Alekhine stated once that the most difficult thing in chess is to sacrifice on time a pawn. Sacrificing a piece requires deep calculation and we usually decide on it only when we are certain that we win the game. A pawn is a different thing though. It is seemingly less committing but in reality every pawn can become a queen and the danger is no less than when sacrificing a piece.
On the other hand the compensation which one receives when sacrificing a pawn is less obvious and in most of the cases only temporary.
You will learn why Boleslavsky sacrificed a pawn to Mikhail Tal in this position:
