Lecture on 2/9/21

Topic: Computer Moves

Explanation: The term “Computer Move” was introduced during recent years by streamers and fans who use chess engines to follow high-level chess on the Internet.  After the computer shows them the best move in a given position, commentators start guessing whether the human player will play it.  If this appears unlikely, the move is referred to as “Computer Move”.  Examples from grandmaster games will be discussed.

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.
