Building a Bridge, The Lucena


Biulding a bridge, what was Aron Nimzowitsch talking about? The Lucena position, one of the most important maneuvers to learn. It's named after Luis Ramirez de Lucena; however, the earilist book found to have this maneuver was by Alessandro Salvio dated 1634.

Many learn but few make the connection to the idea of building a bridge.  Keep it simple, a bridge is used to cross over, not to cover.  Also learn how to build the bridge from the side.

 Together we build and over the board we even the score!
