   NM Dan Heisman's "Improve Your Chess IV" April 19, 2013

 

National Master Dan Heisman is a name that is synonymous with excellence in chess coaching and teaching. Dan authors the award-winning Novice Nook column (winner of three Chess Journalists of America "Best Instruction" awards), aimed at improving adults, for chesscafe.com that are clearly written and offer very practical advice and tips on how to improve your game. More info about Dan can be found here.

In the new Improve Your Chess IV series, Dan provides instruction by reviewing amateur games played on ICC and showing where the players went wrong and how to improve.
Today's show: Tactics that are triggered by moves that initially look unsafe or unreasonable ("invisible moves"). One such example are "sneaky pins": moves that take advantage of the squares that pinned pieces are no longer guarding. Includes original problems and samples from the books Invisible Moves, Power Chess for Kids, and Move First, Think Later.
