Hi chess mates. For this post I selected 5 interesting puzzles to analyze. We’ll be using different tactical themes as we solve them, like Attraction, Deflection, Pawn Promotion...


In this video you can find variations and explanations for 5 selected diagrams.

My favorite, the last one: there you can find deflection, a queen sacrifice and a fantastic pawn promotion idea. I’d love to know which one you liked the most.

It’s almost sure I won’t be able to post on next Monday, sorry about that. I’m traveling to Havana this week to play “Capablanca Memorial”. It’s another opportunity to get my third IM norm (the toughest of the 3 norms for me ), and finally become IM. I feel better prepared this time, but, I know it won’t be easy. It’s a great challenge for me. But the main goal must always be to have fun playing chess. Of course I will write about it when I come back. 

I can’t avoid mentioning that this week I over passed the 1000 followers on Chess.com. Thank you guys for being there , really proud of the community we have built. This was unthinkable for me one year ago.
