Workshop: Attacking The King


National Master Ryan Young was today's presenter at our latest installment of our workshop series. Today's topic focused on the all important topic of attacking the king. The lecture built upon common themes, starting with the "Classic Bishop Sacrifice", and demonstrated how those same basic foundations are used by grandmasters when initiating more complicated attacking ideas. After the lecture the players got the opportunity to execute their own attack against the master in a simultaneous exhibition from a set position.

Following the simul was a review period where NM Young demonstrated the proper attacking technique. Those that participated were able to walk away with some valuable attacking ideas they will surely be looking to implement soon!
