Attacking the King in the Center: Instructive Game by Lasker (+ Video)

FM michechess89

This is an instructive classic game: Lasker vs Pirc. The World Champion (that’s right… I checked and made sure this game was actually played by Emanuel Lasker, the World Champion ) won a very nice game after his opponent played some inaccuracies and delayed a little to castle.

Lessons from this game

  • Don’t move twice the same piece in the Opening
  • Develop one piece in every move in the Opening
  • Don’t start actions with the King still in the Center
  • If your opponent has the King in the center, you should break and open the position
  • In the tactical theme Desperado, we sacrifice a piece we are going to lose, so we can get some extra material before we actually lose that piece


Good luck to everybody, and take care!!!

Stay home as much as possible.
