May 7, 2014, 6:19 AM |

Today, I read Silmans article on Pawn Structure here... 

He has been stressing repeatedly and so does he again on pattern recognition and its importance.

Here, I am posting a game of mine on fics, a 3 min blitz game, where i win based on theme of smothered mate. I would have lost hadnt i knew the pattern.... which highlights the importance of pattern recognition.

Theme : Smothered mate-- Philidors mate

Here is you tube video on same.
