Student’s game

Today I’d like to show you a very interesting game of a student of mine. His name is Ed Dodd and his USCF is 1140. Ed had started studying seriously (and correctly) on his own very recently but has already made a huge progress. Of course, there are some mistakes in this game, some are even very serious ones, but some moves played by Ed show his potential and clear knowledge of certain middlegame methods.

“Knight delivers the last blow”

This is the name of one of the themes from our middlegame and endgame collection. It is very useful and happens very often. The question is only: do you notice it and can implement it yourself? 🙂 If you are not sure how to use or notice it in your games, it is time to study many such examples! 🙂

This is the second part of my dad’s attacking games and sacrifices, studying which will help you to implement them in your own games 🙂
