Poisoned Pawn

Dear Friends,

We just finished our first lesson with a new student. I enjoyed it very much. I like to help people to start new things, to set up new goals and achieve new dreams. I hope he will also reach his chess and personal goals Smile

Then I started to play my daily moves in the 1000 Bright Minds Chess Simul and I arrived to a game where I got a position which I predicted some days ago to happen. It is a typical opening mistake which good if you know and prevent it, and good if you know and if your opponent plays it then you know how to win.

Eldin sacrificed his d-pawn, because he thought he will win back in the next move, which he did, but the pawn was poisoned and could be won by a double-attack with the queen. Next time, better to win back the pawn immediately or continue with pawn down and counterplay.


Just after one day, I was able to win an other knight in similar way:

Save your pawns and double-check if the one you want to capture is really free or poisoned! 

Play your best moves and have a wonderful day! Smile
