Hey guys,had a quesn and thought it was worth asking.
I've recently started some chess study,going on some masters game and trying my hand at a tactics trainers. I seem to have a problem. Almost every annotated game i study, the statement "to exploit the weakness of a certain xyz square" stumps me. What are weak squares ?? How to use it to my advantage?? Or better still, how to recognize one??
Anyone having a cure to my remedy please post your reply. It will be great if someone explains in a certain posn why is a certain square weak and how the adversary took advantage.Will be greatly appreciated.
I'm sure some of the chessplayers here can explain it better, but I liked the above link's explanation as at least one answer to your question.
thank u for the link, it was very useful in not only understanding the asked concept, but i also came to know the vast chess content on the wiki....much thanks !
