Chess is a game of strategy. Strategy can be defined as the conscious knowledge of a systematic approach to applying the available techniques in order to attain a particular end. Chess strategy is used to exploit the weaknesses of your opponent and seek to achieve certain strategic advantages. The beauty of chess is that anyone can play it and any level of ability can become a player. No skill, experience or previous training is required to begin playing the game.
Pay attention! Checkers is recognized as one of the most educational games. Logic and strategic thinking are developing.
The most important aspect of chess strategy is to know the game you are playing. Not only will this help to develop your strategy, but also understand the game of chess as a whole. Although the opening and middle game are the most important moves, there are other areas of the game that should also be understood such as the endgame. Usually the more complex a move is, the more carefully it should be thought about because even a small difference in one’s strategy can have a large impact.
Two players take part in the game. The main goal of the match is to win.
One of the main differences between attacking and protecting the white pieces is whether you play on the material or superiority:
- Attacks always start from the weakness of the opponent piece, either by moving it one square forward or one square diagonally;
- Protecting the King starts by making sure that the King is protected from all attacks; this can be done by producing the best pieces to surround the King and producing the best pieces to surround the enemy King as well.
The same holds true for the Queen. Protecting the King is usually easier than attacking, whereas attacking the Queen is usually more difficult.
