HI FRIENDS........ I AM A GREAT FAN OF MINIATURE CHESS GAMES. IN FACT I AM AN ADDICT.....
STUDYING MINIATURE HELPS IN
1) HELPS TO GET A CLEAR IDEA OF THE OPENING( WHEN STUDYING AN OPENING, STUDY IT RELATING IT WITH A TRAP)
2) INCREASES THE ARSENAL FOR ATTACKING THE KING ( EG. THE LEGAL TRAP IS COMMON IN e4-e5 OPENINGS. THE SAME IDEA COULD ALSO BE USED IN A LINE OF BUDAPEST DEFENCE)
3) HELPS IN UNDERSTANDING THE COMBINATIVE IDEA( SO WE CAN FORM IT)
HERE IS A MINIATURE WHICH I HAVE WITNESSED BEFORE MY EYES..............
SO I HAVE GOT THE FOLLOWING IDEAS from this miniature game
THE PINNING OF f7 PAWN. (by the bishop)
THE OUTPOSTS IDEAS OF THE QUEEN ON c2.
the weakening move h6.... and the weakened square g6
so bye frnds...comments are welcome
