GM Petrov’s Attack the King! - Attack on the h-file and back-rank mate

Opening: B79, D63:

Player(s): Schott, Cwiek, Bernstein, Capablanca

Attacking the castled King is not always easy. Three soldiers are defending their monarch, and the mighty rook sits there as well, just on the left of His Royal Majesty.
One thing the attacker must do is spotting which of the three pawns is least defended, or more vulnerable. Often, to weaken one of the three crucial pawns, the attacker needs to eliminate the defending pieces, even sacrificing part of his troops. Once you have created the weakness,  regroup your forces and launch a deadly attack on the opponent's King! Easy, isn't it? No, it's not. GM Marian Petrov, in this third video of his series on tactics, explains with his bright and easy-to-understand style what you need to know.
