Same Side Pawn Storms

Same Side Pawn Storms

In this course we will look at pawn storms when both kings are castled on the same side. This will serve as a great attacking tool but as we will see, it is risky if you do it at the wrong time. This course has problems with a huge range of difficulty, from 800 all the way up to 2200, so it will be a good exercise for players of all levels.

Premature Attacks on the King

Premature Attacks on the King

Knowing when to sacrifice material in order to open up your opponent's King is one of the most important tactics to learn in chess. Proper execution of this maneuver must take in to account all of a defender's pieces (or lack thereof) to determine whether or not the sacrifice will work and is sound, and/or if you have a continuation to follow the try.
