GM Petrov’s Attack the King! - When to attack?

Opening: C54:

Player(s): Greco, NN

In this second video of the course, GM Marian Petrov tackles a crucial topic: when is the right moment to attack? We often tend to attack our opponent's forces as soon as we see a possibility. Still, it's essential to consider the situation: what if our opponent can easily defend, maybe even developing his pieces? The art of attack is not driven by brute force, but, on the contrary, it's often a matter of fine-tuning, of assessing the position and weighting all the possible developments. The right conditions to launch an effective attack may come from different situations: the opponent has made a positional mistake, or his opening sequence wasn't perfect, or you've been playing well, and your development is much better than your opponent's. In this video, GM Marian shows us two enlightening examples: when it's right to attack and when it's not.
