Ronen 'Indiana-Jones' Har-Zvi starts his new feat 'Tactics for Everyone' - a course on basic and not-so-basic tactics in chess - demonstrating how to take advantage of undefended pieces, with what is usually called a double-attack. If you have loose pieces spread over the board for too many moves in a row, you're bound to suffer from your opponent's tactics, aimed to win material, when not the whole game. In this series, GM Har-Zvi guides you to learn the thinking processes that lead to spot tactics on the board and take advantage of the chances offered by the position. As Ronen says: everyone blunders, even Carlsen, and a good player must be able to spot it and punish it. How? By using tactics, of course!
In this new video series Ronen tackles one of the most important part of the game: Tactics. And he does this from a beginner and intermediate player's perspective: everyone will be able to enjoy, learn and improve watching this new series. All of us have at least once asked ourselves the typical questions: What is tactics in chess? Why is tactics one of the most important piece of knowledge you need to play chess?
