Learning to Play Chess: Weekly Analysis #5
Attacking is hard. I have been spending time working on trying to organize and execute midgame-endgame plans and a lot of that has revolved around how to attack my opponents position. Last week in one of my games I showed a fairly good attack but I missed an important move that would have led to a win and instead ended up with a draw.
This game I tried to set up a strong King-side attack and missed a lot of chances for successful moves that would allow it to work. Despite a few blunders, and many inaccuracies, I was left only slightly behind in the endgame.
Trying to play strong attacking games is fun because I feel like I am active in the game. And I always feel that making aggressive mistakes is better than passive ones.
Anyways, here is another weekly analysis. I played as black in a Scandinavian Defense.
