Historical Chess Analysis

Beating Kasparov

Anatoly Karpov is one of the greatest chess players in history. He was the official world champion from 1975 to 1985, when he was defeated by Garry Kasparov.

He held the title until 1999, when he resigned as form of protest against the new rules of the FIDE World Championship. For

My first ever chess tournament By Armin Mušović

When one country has a small number of people, you might think that it is easy to win some chess tournament, or championship. However, if you only have one opponent who can parry you, everything becomes different, and the number of people (competitors) becomes less important.  I started to play chess more seriously when I was 13 years old. Before that, I knew what my father taught me – a rook is stronger than a bishop, it

Flirting With Victory

Flirting With Victory FEN: 4r1k1/4rp2/2R3pp/3pq2n/2nN4/4PP1P/2Q2KP1/2R2N2 w – – 1 29   Position Analysis:  I am on the move as White.  Material is totally equal. We have about 75 seconds remaining on our clock and the opponent only has 50 seconds.  Black appears to have a safer king and just played 28. …Qe5, preparing an overwhelming attack against e3 with total control of “e” file. How can White alleviate pressure?  What real threats does our opponent have, what threats can we create?
