I haven’t discussed strictly endgames which is why I decided to discuss this post. The endgame is the most important (in my mind) part of chess because it teaches you the power of individual pieces and what they can do. Examples include; how to use a rook and bishop on an open board and how to position your king. I have a very instructive video which I believe drives the point home about how the cut-off is a powerful (yet unusual as most games don’t illustrate it well and is not exactly understood) technique to win you many chess games! Check out the video below!
I hope you enjoyed this post and If you have any questions and/or wish to provide feedback, please do not hesitate to comment and I will be happy to answer!

I have been playing chess for over 16 years. For the last year or so, I decided to try something different. I noticed that when playing chess games online, I was winning a lot of games involving openings that one might not be accustomed to. I would analyze my games afterwards and notice how much more complex and beautiful they were compared to the “traditional openings” many grandmasters and tournament players would play.
