2.Middle-game:

White to play

If you were playing this position, what would be your evaluation of this position. How would you destroy black?

White to play

If you were playing this position, what would be your evaluation. Is this a draw or can white win with the pawn or neither?

If you were playing this position, what would be your evaluation. Is this position winnable for white or a draw is expected?

These ideas are must have patterns in your mind for understanding and ultimately playing better chess.

Solving the positions:


Try to solve these positions by

  1. Evaluating the position, finding who's better i.e white or black.
  2. Studying the positions one by one, without rushing.
  3. Calculating different variations no less than 5 minutes each position, for better understanding.

I play the London often, it's very good for open and attack minded games.
