# Daily Calculation Exercises - Day 56 | Middlegame Magic

| 10

Today's 10 exercises are from 3 games I played in the last week's Titled Tuesday Tourney. In 2 of the games I played the Pirc defense and got a fine positions in the middlegame. In one of them I got a strong attack on his king.

I overlooked this treat:

I saw this combination, but stopped the calculation too early:

What was his best option?

How can black continue the attack?

What is the most straightforward way to win?

I missed this chance. How can black win? Give yourself 5-10 minutes to find it!

How can white get a big advantage?

What is the best defense?

An exercise for Kevin

How can black increase the pressure?

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 chess.com, 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.
