Daily Calculation Exercises - Day 44 | Checkmates!

| 5

In the Titled Tuesday Tourney I played with International Master Nikolai Vlassov. I used the Grand Prix Attack against his sicilian defense and I got a great attack against the king. I created 9 exercises from the game: 

How could I finish the game?

How to give a checkmate in 2 moves?

How can white continue the attack?

How to get a winning advantage? This is a deeper position. Please calculate until the end!

How can white force a checkmate?

How can white increase the pressure?

A nice, little checkmate in 2 moves:

A quick one:

The last one for today:

I wish you enjoyed the exercises. Please use the patterns in your games!

If you would like to improve your calculation I suggest you 2 great courses:

Tactics Ninja: Something unbelievable and funny. The editor Lily, being 1,200 on, raised her online rating by 100 points in 2 weeks, just by looking through the videos of this course when she was editing them.

Mating Matador: Mastering mating patterns is the next step to get better at tactics and become a dangerous attacker. It often bridges the gap between a strong attack against the opponent's King and victory. So once you become better at sniffing checkmates, your attacking skills naturally improve.
