Hello my chess friends. As you already know, tactics is a very important aspect of the game if you want to raise your level. In this post, I’m going to try to help you to improve, explaining these 5 puzzles, where you have to win using Attraction.

Just like in 2016, a series of draws has opened the 2018 world chess championship, but this time Fabiano Caruana is creating the vacuum. In today's round three, both sides had a whisper of a chance. According to Carlsen, his opponent's came in the form of a single move. When that was missed, Carlsen got to apply some pressure...

Эта программа была настолько популярна, что даже в словах одной популярной песни говорилось, что гроссмейстер Авербах открыл школу на...

The women's world championship is down to just eight players as another eight got eliminated in the third round. The biggest names packing their bags were Harika Dronavalli, Antoaneta Stefanova, Natalija Pogonina and Valentina Gunina. The legendary trainer Mark Dvoretsky once told me that there were two types of chess players: the highly theoretical academics and the practical street fighters. In a funny sort of coincidence the same can be said for the two concurrent world championships. While the...

The most exciting world championships of all-time countdown ends with a nearly consensus pick: Bobby Fischer vs. Boris Spassky in 1972 in Iceland.
