Mating Nets

Mating Nets

How can you trap the opponent's king at any stage of the game?

WGM Tatev Abrahamyan is a ferocious attacking player. In this course she presents five brilliant games to demonstrate how to cast a mating net at any moment.

  • How did Mikhail Chigorin sacrifice his queen to win a brilliant miniature?
  • How did Tatev win by forcing her opponent's king down the board?
  • How did world champion, Alexander Alekhine, checkmate in the endgame?
  • How did GM Judit Polgar take risks to attack a solid opponent?
  • Put it all together with an amazing study by Genrikh Kasparyan. 

Great video series! This is super helpful to understand the ways you can finish off your opponent, I usually get stuck in the middle of an attack and can't find the mate, this video series really helps out on that, thanks WGM Tatev Abrahamyan!
