Lecture on Tuesday 9/29

MLCC is continuing the online lecture series.
This week, September 29at 7:30 pm:

Vinko will present: Tactical Liabilities in Practical Chess

Tactical liability is an arrangement of pieces and pawns that may allow a tactical strike in the future. The following typical examples will be explained:
Unprotected piece or pawn
Exposed King
Pieces on the same diagonal or line
Double attack possibility
Underdevelopment
In practical games, creation of tactical liabilities is often necessary and does not affect final outcome as long as a player pays attention to them.

We expect that this presentation will be finished at 9:00 pm because of the upcoming presidential debate.
