Transcript

  • 1. Strategy and Chess
  • 2. Introduction
    • The game of chess is over 1300 years old and is one of the most popular games ever played in the world.
    • Each player sets up sixteen pieces on a board with sixty-four squares of alternating colors.
  • 3. Moving And Capturing
    • White moves first followed by black. The players continue taking turns using only their own pieces until the game ends. A turn consists of a single act of either moving or capturing.
  • 4. The Broad Concept of Strategy
    • Strategy must be focused on the opponent and be very fluid.
    • Opponents often don't respond as expected, therefore a good strategy will change slightly based on the situation.
    • The outcome of good strategy will be many small advantages that will lead to victory.
  • 5. Breakdown on Pieces
    • Understanding the relative strength of one's resources is a key element of strategy.
    • One way to calculate the strength of a player is to assign point values to individual pieces based on their usefulness.
    Pawn = 1 Bishop = 3 Knight = 3 Rook = 5 Queen = 9 King = no point value (It’s being protected)
  • 6. Player Strength
    • At the beginning of each game, each player is said to have a strength of 39.
    • Players strength generally remains nearly equal for the first half of a match.
    • However, as play continues, even small differences are significant and are a good indication of who will win.
  • 7. Strength Can Be Deceptive
    • Like anything involving strategy, strength does not necessarily mean victory.
    • Player strength can be deceptive and powerful pieces can be trapped behind others.
      • Example: This happens to the rook at the beginning of the game when it is trapped behind a pawn.
  • 8. Influence of A Piece
    • In addition to strength , pieces also have influence based on their board location
      • For example: The Bishop is more powerful toward the center of the board with more influence there

  • 10. Total Influence On The Board Total Influence
    • A composite of all the influence of pieces at the different positions reveals that the center of the board is the best place.
    • The pieces all have more options from the center except the rook.

  • 11. Opening
    • Chess Openings consists of the first six or eight moves
    • This is a time when both sides are trying to develop a position that will yield the greatest power against the opponent’s defenses.
  • 12. Opening – General Strategy
    • General Opening Strategy
      • Avoid Moving a Chess Piece Twice During the Opening (you want to evenly develop all pieces)
    • Develop the a side’s knight before Bishop
      • This will provide the best positioning and lead to greater influence of the pieces
  • 13. Opening – General Strategy
    • Do not play a piece beyond your own side of the board in the opening
      • You generally should not play a piece beyond its 4th square, until you have the other pieces for back up
    • Avoid Premature Attacks
      • Probably the beginners biggest mistake
      • An attack should never be launched until there is enough force to carry it to a successfully
  • 14. The Most Powerful Tactics
    • Tactics are powerful actions used to implement strategy.
    • Three of the most powerful tactics are the fork , the pin, and the combination .
  • 15. Tactics: The Fork
    • A fork occurs when a single piece attacks two targets simultaneously
    • This is a devastating blow since there is no way to escape the loss of one of these pieces.
    • Forks are primarily effective when a weaker piece forks stronger pieces.
    • They are most effective when one of the pieces is a king
  • 16. Tactics: The Pin
    • A pin occurs when a piece attacks another in such a way that the threatened piece cannot move without putting a more important piece at risk.
    • The pinned piece's influence is stripped while it is stuck and forced to protect.
  • 17. Tactics: Combination Attack
    • In a combination, two or more pieces focus their power on one or more key squares.
    • Combinations are difficult to defend against and are often used in the middle and end games.
    • This tactic helps to eliminate options for an opponent’s escape
  • 18. Conclusion - Checkmate
    • The game is won when an opponent's king cannot move anywhere without being captured
    • This is called checkmate
    When implemented correctly, an effective strategy will force an opponent into a predicted situation
