  1. Queen sacrifice
    $8.97

    What's the most beautiful, stylish and, why not, romantic way to win a chess game? Yes, you're right: sacrificing the Queen to checkmate the enemy King! In this new episode of his Tactics for Everyone! show, GM Ronen Har-Zvi guides us through this amazing piece of theory in the tactics department.

  2. Intermediate moves
    $5.98

    Many times we find ourselves analyzing a position on the board and thinking, it's draw, I can't find anything that would give me an advantage here. Well, sometimes there is a little and "hidden" move that can turn the table. It's the famous intermediate move, and in-between move that can make the difference. With the first episode on this important part of tactics GM Ronen introduces us into the almost-magic world of the intermediate moves.

  3. Defending with advanced tactics
    $2.99

    We see tactics as a weapon to attack, win material, destroy our enemy's formation. But what about being able to use tactics to defend? You know, when you are on the brink of defeat, your opponent has mate in one, the position looks totally lost. Well, that's the exact moment to check for tactics! Forcing moves, sacrifices and everything we have learned with Ronen so far can become an important resource to pull ourselves out of trouble. In this very interesting episode of his show, GM Ronen Har-Zvi uses some advanced tactics to illustrate how an apparent defeat can be overthrown by using the powerful "tricks" of tactics.

  4. King in the center
    $2.99

    The enemy's King hasn't castled yet. Good! Let's keep it stuck in the center of the board, and then... attack! In this episode of his show, GM Ronen "Indiana-Jones" Har-Zvi makes us aware of the importance of castling. When the King is stuck in center, there are tactics patterns that can lead to immediate victory or, in some cases, to an overwhelming material advantage. The key-words, in this particular case, are "open files". Rooks, Bishops and, of course, the Queen, work together on open files to threaten the King that cannot castle. Don't miss this brilliant tactics lesson!

  5. Checkmate!
    $8.97

    Most of us see checkmate as the "romantic" part of chess. It is the adventurous and audacious ones that are able to sacrifice pieces, even the Queen!, to checkmate the enemy King. But Ronen shows us how this is not the way to master this important part of our tactical knowledge; it's all about patterns.

  6. What is your opponent threatening?
    $2.99

    I have only to words: Game 6!" - Ronen refers to the recently concluded World Championship Match , of course. In game 6, neither of the two incredibly strong opponents saw what the other was threatening over the board. In this interesting episode of his Tactics for Everyone series, Ronen shows us how important it is to understand what your opponent threatens before you make your next move. It might sound like a very simple concept, that every chess player already knows... but it's not exactly as you may think. Watch the video and let Ronen guide you through this important topic.

  7. The Board has 64 squares!
    $2.99

    You see a nice move, a move that's very tempting. Well, you have two possibilities: 1) Play the move quickly, bang on the clock and run jumping around, like you just scored a goal in Barcelona vs. Real Madrid; 2) THINK. Yes, think carefully about what you're going to move, what your opponent will reply, and the consequences of your "brilliant move". It is a matter of changing one's approach to the board: we often see good moves in the short range, forgetting that the board is quite large, with 64 squares full of tricks and possibilities. As Ronen says, the great World Champion Emanuel Lasker said one of most important - and famous - truths in chess history: when you see a good move, look for a better one!

  8. The Skewer
    $2.99

    It's not about BBQ, no. You're right though: a "skewer" is a long pin of wood or metal for inserting through meat or other food to hold or bind it in cooking. But in chess it has a slightly different meaning: a skewer (or X-ray attack) is an attack upon two pieces in a line and is similar to a pin. In fact, a skewer is sometimes described as a "reverse pin"; the difference is that in a skewer, the more valuable piece is in front of the piece of lesser or equal value, and is not able to defend it. It's another important weapon that every chess player should master; in this episode Ronen shows us a lot of examples, especially of rook endings, where the skewer becomes a powerful piece of winning tactics.

  9. Pinning
    $5.98

    The pin is one of the most powerful weapons we can use over the board. Ronen classifies the pins into three different categories: absolute pin, relative pin and pin on a square. In this episode of his Tactics for Everyone show, Indiana-Jones shows us how to use this important resource, which can really be decisive during a game

  10. Removing the Defender
    $5.98

    One of the most important piece of tactics in chess is the removal of the defender. When we realize that there is a chance to gain material, we need to study the position carefully, and understand if there is a possibility to use tactics to remove a defender - even apparently sacking an important piece - and win a piece, or even the whole battle.

  11. Discover Attack
    $2.99

    This week Ronen illustrates another basic idea in the tactics realm: the discover attack. As he says, when there is an open file, and a piece - or the Queen - is potentially under attack, it's like when you see a red dot hovering over your chest. Nobody has pulled the trigger yet, but you need to pay attention! Attacking a piece by a discover check leads to win material, and often the game. Again, it's important to recognize the patterns which lead to these advantageous situations, and once you get familiar with the patterns, you can find ways to create positions on the boards which will help you use the tactics Ronen is teaching you in this amazing show.

  12. Double Attack
    $8.97

    Ronen "Indiana-Jones" Har-Zvi starts his new feat "Tactics for Everyone" - a course on basic and not-so-basic tactics in chess - demonstrating how to take advantage of undefended pieces, with what is usually called a double-attack.
