Daily Calculation Exercises - Day 50 | Fire on the board

Daily Calculation Exercises - Day 50 | Fire on the board

| 5

Yesterday in the Titled Tuesday Tourney I played a game against FIDE-Master Lefong Hua from Canada. I allowed his pawn advance in the queenside in the Ben-oni defense. He sacrificed a pawn with c5-c4 to open the c-file and the g1-b6 diagonal and created fire on the board. All his pieces were so nicely placed. I created 10 exercises from the game.

This not happened, but could be a great finish

this one too

How should black continue the attack?

This deep exercise need at least 15 minutes:

What is the quickest checkmate?

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.
