Here is a game I recently played that I was very proud of. This game relates to a theme of chess I've been trying to really work on which is creating weaknesses. In the past I found myself never exploiting the little weaknesses of the position because I thought they were pointless. For example, "Hhmm, I can't move my knight there. He will just push it away with a pawn." That one pawn pushing your knight away could create a weakness in your opponents position. I'm learning to play aggresive in a careful and create way. Not to say we should always be aggressive but play in a way to create little weaknesses while taking care of your own. 

 

Here's my game, I gave up two rooks for this win.

 

 


Just wanted to share that example with you. Now go ahead, make some weaknesses and exploit them!
