A free series aimed at improving the average player.

 

As this is the first issue, I will start with minor basics.

2. Active - prefers open games, aiming to gain a tactical advantage to convert into a crushing attack.

And now I have included one of my personal games. This week's theme: positional chess.






Stay tuned for next week's issue!
