ChessKids, did you know that sometimes even the most powerful piece can be sacrificed? That's right! Even the queen can be sacrificed if opportunity strikes. FM Mike Klein teaches you with some great examples, including his own games!
The windmill is probably the most powerful tactic in chess, and it can leave your opponent helpless.
FM Mike Klein teaches you how to set up this devastating attack. Make sure you watch till the end, because you won’t believe the final position FunMasterMike sets up for you.
Did you miss it? Your Games Analyzed was away for a month while FunMasterMike was on assignment. But that means he had a whole month of games to pick from! The result? A crazy game with pawns promoting in the middlegame; it also ended with smothered mate. Then we had a rare windmill attack (the subject of the most recent PandoPuzzler), and to cap it off, the Tactic of the Week! That's a whole month of amazement in one show, and this is just part 1!
IM Danny Rensch guest stars to teach us a trick you can do with the Discovered Attack which is possibly even cooler than Double Check! Just like two checks are better than one, many discovered attacks beat just one every time. Today you will learn about a special type of position which gives rise to UNLIMITED Discovered Attacks. I told you the Windmill was pretty cool!
