Mastering the Exchange Sacrifice
Sacrificing the exchange in chess often involves strategic as well as dynamic elements and this is what this video is about!
One of the best French GMs Romain Edouard has selected five instructive examples of strategic exchange sacrifice involving dynamic elements.
In the majority of the examples (four out of five) exchange sacrifice damages opponent’s pawn structure while (at the same time) dynamic elements in the position benefit the attacking side.
Sacrificing motifs are typical and will improve your play, making it easier for you to recognize similar opportunities in your own games!
Punish Late Development
Neglecting development can be costly in chess!
Often, for ‘the love of an extra pawn’ or in pursuit of a strategic idea, players neglect their development in the opening.
In this video top French GM Romain Edouard explains how to punish your opponent for such neglect. Too slow strategy meets tactical retribution!
Examples range from a classic exploitation by Bobby Fischer to a modern example from Chinese top gun Ding Liren.
