Tactics for Everyone Bundle

In this course, GM Ronen Har-Zvi tackles one of the most important parts 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 these videos.

All of us have at least once asked ourselves the typical questions:

  • What is a tactic in chess?
  • Why is tactics one of the most important piece of knowledge you need to play chess?
  • How to spot tactics in a game?
  • How to take advantage of it?
  • GM Ronen is here to answer our queries, by guiding us – with many interesting examples – through the basics of chess tactics, such as double-attacks, forks, pins, how to use material to create tactics; to then move on into more complicated topics, such as intermediate moves, double threats, and more!

Double Attack 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!

You’ll Learn:

  • The killer Queen sac no-one sees coming (made famous by Frank Marshall’s immortal “Gold Coins” game).
  • How to set-up the awesome smothered mate, arguably the most satisfying combination to play in chess.
  • What to do when a tactic doesn’t quite work (hint: it’s one of Lasker’s most important principles).
  • GM Har-Zvi’s deceptive trick for picking up undefended pieces – this alone will make you deadly at blitz.
  • Why we’re most vulnerable when attacking, the knowledge you can use to score brilliant counter-attacking victories.
