Endgame Techniques: Shouldering. Part 1
Posted on May 20,2015 By OnlineChessLessons.NET Contributor in Strategy & Game Review, General Chess Articles. In this article I would like to show you “shouldering,” an endgame strategy that in my opinion is not given enough attention in specialized books. Most books covering the endgame are full of matters concerning “zugzwang,” “opposition,” etc., leaving this topic, which is no less important, to always take a back seat. In the endgames, something quite peculiar happens between both kings. They are the only pieces that cannot directly threaten or capt[...]

Corner pawn crushing the fianchetto structure (Part III)
Posted on May 19,2015 By GM Levan Aroshidze in Strategy & Game Review, General Chess Articles, Beginner's Corner. In the final part of this article series, I would like to show some examples when the corner pawn attack is used in the endgames and may have a decisive impact on the result of the game. In the endgames, the corner pawn advance can hardly have the same direct attacking purposes against the rival's king, but it may be used as a positional/strategic resource. Smyslov - Karlsen, 1982 After the first look at the position, it's not so clear who has th[...]

Corner pawn crushing the fianchetto structure (Part I)
Posted on May 12,2015 By GM Levan Aroshidze in Strategy & Game Review, General Chess Articles, Beginner's Corner. Many players (including myself) like the fianchetto setup. It gives wide possibilities to the bishop on the long diagonals. Furthermore, when the castle is made on the fianchetto's side, king feels more protected. However, there are spots even on the Sun. For example, if a fianchettoed bishop is exchanged, a complex of weak squares will appear around the fianchetto pawn structure. It is a very logical and popular idea to expose the fianchetto set[...]

How to Play When Behind in Material: Part 2
Posted on May 06,2015 By FM Dalton Perrine in Strategy & Game Review, General Chess Articles. In the previous article, we talked about the first way to play when behind in material. That way involved taking advantage of whatever benefits and possibilities your position offers you. It involved a lot of self-confidence and positive thinking in order to figure out what advantages, however small, you have in a situation.
