“Castling is safe. Castle early while you still can.”
Isn’t that what everyone says? Guess what – they are WRONG!
Take a look at how Kasparov destroys Mephisto (the computer engine) and his castled king in this game in 1985…
In his new course ‘Destroying the Castle’, FM Tekeyev shows you that even a castled king can be demolished in a few moves at times.
Using over a dozen of chess games as live examples, he demonstrates how often castling actually turns your position into a disaster at times and how to take advantage of that.
It often starts with a sacrifice out of the blue, then demolishing the enemy camp, and finally, ending it with a fatal blow that ends the game.
Want to score a full point at your next tournament? Wait for your opponent to castle. Then, see if you can exploit those little protectors of the enemy king – the f, g, and h pawns.
