How to Read this Book: Instructions are for beginners to understand how to read this book.
1) Setting up chess board: “White on Right” & White king on black square & Black king on White Square.

White square on right rows


A chessboard is of 64 squares, having 32 white squares & 32 black squares that are alternately placed on a
chess board. Now every square on a chess board has a unique identity so that it can be easily denoted,
hence the chessboard is horizontally divided into 8 rows from row 1 to row 8 & vertically divided into 8
columns, from column a to column h. (Row=Rank & Column=file)
Hence the extreme square on right hand side on which Rook is standing is h1 square, h-column & 1st row.

K=King.

Q=Queen.

B=Bishop.

N=Knight.

R=Rook.

p = pawn.

NKC VOL-1
My Stunning Chess Games

White plays, pawn in front of king to e4 square, e column & 4th row. Whenever pawn moves or captures,
it is denoted by square on which it stands. Black plays c6, c column & 6th row.

White’s pawn on e4 square captures black’s pawn on d5 square; this is written as e4xd5 or exd.

White moves his king from f1 square to g1 square, this is written as Kg1.
Black king captures white pawn, this is written as Kxd6.

White plays his knight from f2 square to h3 square, this is written as Nh3. N=Knight. Going on
h3 square hence Nh3. Black plays Qc5+ giving check to white king.

NKC VOL-1
My Stunning Chess Games

Black’s bishop on g4 square pins white knight on f3 square, now if white knight moves then
white queen on d1 square is gone which is a more valuable piece than a knight, bishop or rook.

White’s knight moves from f4 square to e6 square in order to fork black’s queen & rook.
Fork means knight is attacking two pieces at a time & both of them are move valuable than knight.
One piece is going to fall for sure, either queen or rook. (NxQd8 or NxRf8)

Value of pieces in the game.


Pieces Symbol Standing Position on chess board Value
White Black Points Strength
Queen (Q) d1 square d8 square 9.5 = + +
Rook (R) a1 & h1 squares a8 & h8 squares 5 = + +

INTRODUCTION 9

I
“ f u think Chess is a boring, tiresome & dull game then this book will prove u wrong”
As the name suggest, this book contains my best chess games explained step by step & basic principles,
tips that will help u to develop your playing skills.

“Every Chess master was once a beginner.”... (Chernev)


This book is written for Beginners, Amateurs & Intermediate players of chess. I have read many books
regarding every phase of the game, written by top grandmasters, but truly telling I haven’t been able to
understand most of their analysis, the root cause is that it was out of my range, as an intermediate player,
calculating to the depth of a move & doing the same for every possible variation & that to after every single
move, is to difficult for me, & I am to impatient to do that.

Moreover if you are stuck in between games thinking, “What move should I make next?” then this book
will help, to improve your thinking ahead ability in every phase of game in terms of, “Tactics & Strategy”.

I have tried to explain my exact thoughts and further thinking, while playing through these games.
Believe me, Beginners; Amateurs & Intermediate players of chess can understand me easily because me as
an intermediate player, we both have same strength & same wavelength to synchronize.

My aim is to make u a better chess player, after going through this Book.
This book presents analysis of my own played chess games explaining openings, middle games using
tactics & strategies that helped me to win those games against computer chess programs like Chess genius,
Chess partner 5.3, Chess mafia; Chess master challenge, & also human beings while playing online on
internet and some games from tournaments that I played.

Some of my games presented in this book are classy enough to catch an eye of few grandmasters.
In short, some of my games are of grandmaster class & elegance.

You will certainly face similar situations in many games ahead that u will be playing from now on, which
I did in these games, and the next time, I m sure u will find the right approach & right solution, that will
help you to win many of those games.

Hope u will definitely learn something from this book. So take out your chess board, set pieces & get
ready for a Rollercoaster Ride!!!

Enjoy this book!!!

Game: 1
[Event "Rated game, 3m + 3s"] 10
[White “Diehard” "(Nitin)]
[Black “Koltyfan”]
[Opening "Pirc Defense: Miscellaneous Systems"]
[ECO "B07"]

1) e4…“Best by Test” according to Sir Bobby Fischer, Former World champion!!


First of all after playing e4!, White’s pawn immediately strikes in the centre , controlling d5, f5
squares, which are important squares in the centre as it is important to control centre on a chess
battlefield, moreover, White’s Queen & Bishop diagonal are opened, which means they can move
whenever they want to. Also e4 gains some more breathing space for white gaining half territory of
the board, where white can develop pieces.
d6...This is initial move which indicates Pirc defense.
Basic idea behind Pirc defense is, initially allowing white to take centre control, but black strikes
The center later on as he develops his pieces, to form Sicilian Dragon like structure, where black’s
f8 bishop goes to g7 square, attacking centre from a safe corner as well as doing a defensive job of
guarding black king.

2) d4…going for ideal pawn centre, now d4 & e4 are controlling c5, d5, e5, f5 important squares. Hence
This makes difficult for Black to land up any pieces on those squares.
e5… strikes the centre. Fights back for equal share in centre but in this case it is a bad move, as we
will see as the game progress.

3) dxe5! This is a good move because, this pawn exchange, removes the only centre pawn that black has.
Moreover if black takes pawn on e5 with d6 pawn then queen exchange will take away the right to
King castle for black. Let’s see!
dxe5

4) Qxd8+! Exchanging queens thus stopping Black’s king from castling as he has to move in order to
recapture white’s queen.
Kxd8 … forced move.

5) Nf3... Attacking e5 pawn & centre control with piece development.


f6 ..Supports e5 pawn

6) Bc4 ..Developing bishop & getting ready to castle O-O.


Bc5 ..Attacking the f2 pawn

7) O-O.. King castle’s to safety.


c6 ..This is again a bad pawn move.

8) Rd1+ Developing rook on open file.


Kc7 again bad move, placing king in centre, helping white to catch black’s king defenseless in the centre.
In such situations black should try to take king away from centre to a safe place & should develop
pieces rapidly to neutralize white’s attack.

Note: Beginners & Newbie’s please check the glossary given at the last page of this book to
understand some basic chess terms.

NKC VOL-1
My Stunning Chess Games

11

White plays Rd1+


Rook controls an open d-file.

9) a3 ..Idea is to attack black’s only active piece bishop, in centre, with a pawn move b4 on next white’s
move.
Ne7 ..Developing piece & clearing way to activate Rook.

10) b4! Attacking bishop with pawn, & strengthening mating net around black’s king.
Bb6

11) a4 ..Pressurizing black’s bishop again, forcing it to move, yet again.


Bd4

12) Nxd4! Exchanging Knight for Bishop & also freeing up a square for c1 bishop.
exd4

13) Rxd4 ..Keeps king in mating net by controlling open file, now black is also a pawn down.
Rd8 ..Idea to exchange rook’s, thus giving black king space to move freely after the exchange, thus
Idea is to neutralize the threat. But I had a surprise for him, waiting!

Black plays Rd8

14) Bf4+! And it’s all over for black.


Now, the only square for king to go is b6, his own pieces & pawns block his way to safety. If black king
goes to b6, then white’s pawn move a5+! Would give checkmate to black king & that would be so shameful
for black king to be defeated by a mere pawn!!!
However Black can block check by interference of black’s d8 rook, but this also loses as black goes a piece
down after white’s Rxd6! Stopping black king from escape & going up in material.
So Black resigned.

NKC VOL-1
My Stunning Chess Games

12
And White wins, 1-0

After Black’s Kb6, White has a5+!


Checkmating black king

Black resigns after being stunned!

KEY POINTS:
1) Quick Development of pieces.
2) Kingside castling, taking king to safety. (O-O)
3) Opening up file for an attack.( d-file)

6) Controlling opened up files with rooks. (Rd1)
7) Creating mating net around opponent’s king. (a5, b4, Rd4, Bf4, Bc4)

Game: 2
[White "Nitin"] 13
[Black "Kasparov chess deluxe (Expert mode)"]
[Opening "Smith-Morra Gambit"]
[ECO "B21"]

1) e4 …Games with e4 leads to open games, where later on in the game, open files, open ranks, open
diagonals are created leading to quick attacks & plenty of action packed games as compared to close
games starting with d4.
c5…This is the initial move of so called Sicilian Defense of Black, this defense is considered one of
Black’s most dynamic defense against e4.

2) d4…attacking center in order to open up d-file, white wants of take initiative from the very start.
cxd4..Black takes a center pawn of white.

3) c3! This is Smith-Morra gambit, White offers one more pawn here, the idea is to Open up d-file &
sideline blacks c-pawn, & to go ahead in development of pieces, & asking black to waste his time by
grabbing pawns while in that time white develops his pieces on active squares leading to attacking
opportunities for white in compensation for pawns!
dxc3..Black grabs material.

4) Bc4…White ignores c3 pawn & develops his bishop on an attacking square c4, aiming at f7 square
of black. Here White can also play Nxc3! which develops piece & capture blacks c3 pawn.
Qc7…develops queen & attacks bishop.

5) Qb3! Develops white Queen, supports bishop while creates Queen+Bishop Battery & creates threat
on f7 pawn.
cxb2..Black ignores threat as black king can move to d8 square, grabs more material & goes ahead
by 2 pawns.

6) Bxb2…develops bishop on a1-h8 diagonal.


Qf4…attacks e4 pawn, a center pawn.

7) Nd2!...Develops knight & defends e4 pawn


Nc6…develops knight.

8) Nh3! Develops knight & attacks black queen also clears back rank for kingside castle.
Qd6…retreats queen.

9) Bxf7+…white gets back a pawn.


Kd8…Forced move.

10) Nc4! Attacks black queen, & clears d1 square for rook.
Qc5

11) O-O …king safety


Nf6…develops other knight.
Look at the position now,
White has completely developed position with all pieces active & king safely castled, all this at cost
of only 1 pawn. Moreover white went ahead in development by gambiting pawn & also won tempo
by attacking black queen several times meanwhile developing pieces, while black has just 3 pieces
developed while his king is hanging in center.

NKC VOL-1
My Stunning Chess Games

14

White completes development with attacking & game winning prospects.

12) Rad1! Controls open file, d-file on which black king stands, whites all pieces are deadly & on
aggressive post.
Nxe4…grabs pawn goes ahead by 2 pawns, but now center is open only for white to take advantage
of it.

13) Nf4! Bringing knight in center to contribute to attack, as knight gets a dangerous piece when it is
close to enemy post.
a5..Idea is to attack white queen & push it away.
But White has a stunning move which black overlooked.

14) Ne6+!! Uses the advantage of black’s d7 pawn pinned by white’s d1 rook, so it cant move & white
knight fork’s King & Queen & delivers a stunning Checkmate to black.

White plays Ne6#

Black loses after being stunned! White wins, 1-0

KEY POINTS:
1) Be prepared to sacrifice some material for an active attacking game. ( d4, c3, e4)
2) Speedy development of pieces.
3) Attacking opponent’s major pieces with minor pieces & gaining momentum & tempo. ( Nc4)
4) Kings safety. (O-O)
5) Activating all pieces on attacking squares before starting an attack.
6) Looking for deadly tactics like pin, fork, and decoy etc.

Game: 3
[Event "Rated game, 3m + 3s"] 15
[White "Bret heart"]
[Black "ARAG"]
[Opening:"Danish Gambit"]
[ECO "C21"]

1. e4 …play in center, opens up diagonal for white Queen & Bishop.


e5 …equalizing move, same reasons.

2. d4…Attacking e5 pawn, asking it to move or capture immediately, thus opening e-file.


Nf6…Attacks white e4 pawn & develops a piece in centre. Disadvantage of this move is that black loses a
tempo, as white pawn attacks it after capturing e5 pawn.

3. dxe5…attacks knight, opens d-file, gains space advantage in center.


Nxe4…equalizing with piece develops in center.

4. Bd3…develops piece in center, attacks black knight & makes it to move again.
Nxf2…Knight sacrifice by black in order to trap white king in center for checkmate.
Black sacrifices the only active piece he had in the centre of the board, with an idea of trapping
white king in center, but he can’t checkmate white king unless he develops his pieces, in the centre. Also he
thought that moving knight back would waste a tempo, so why not to sacrifice the knight so if then white
king captures knight, he loses the right to castle to safety & thus white king will be open to attack in the
center.

5. Kxf2…White king captures knight, thus loses right to castle. Now white king is open to attack in centre.
Bc5+ …black develops piece in center & forces white to defend his king.

6. Be3…defends king & attacks black bishop, & develops a piece.


Bxe3+ …is exchanging to keep white king in center.

7. Kxe3, O-O …black castles to safety.


Looking at this position, Black hasn’t got much of a compensation for his knight sacrifice, although
white’s king is in center, but none of black piece attacks it.

8. Nf3…develops piece, supports pawn, activating rook.


Qe7…attacks pawn, trying to open e-file & attacks king in center.

9. Nc3…develops knight, strengthen centre control.


c6…a bad move, instead of developing pieces he is playing with pawns.

10. Qe2…activates queen on e-file & supports e-pawn.


d6… attacks e5 pawn, now e5 pawn of white cannot take d6 pawn as white king is in check.

11. Kd2…King moves to safety, and d6 pawn of black cant capture white’s e5 pawn as Nf5 defends it.
Qd7…again bad move, black moves queen same piece again, and doesn’t develop black’s bishop or
other piece.

12. Rae1…develops piece in centre, strengthen e-file & activates rook.


d5…closes centre.

13. Kc1, c5…pressurizes white bishop.

NKC VOL-1
My Stunning Chess Games

16

White has completed development with all active pieces!

14. Rhf1…Controlling open f-file, thus activates rook & develops a piece.
c4…Attacks white bishop & now he must be very happy to see my bishop trapped as it didn’t had any
safe place to go to. But at that time he didn’t had any idea what so ever of what was going to happen next.

15. Bxh7+!! Stunning move that took black by surprise & it was a bolt out of the blue, for white.
Black’s happiness didn’t last long.

White plays Bh7+ with idea of Ng5+ & Qh5!

Now take a look at the position on the board,


In order to play Bxh7, first try to understand the piece position, on the board.
As well as take following aspects into consideration.
a) Black is behind in development as he has no active piece developed in the center of the board.
b) Even though black king castled to safety, but is still in danger & weakly defended.
However white pieces: Queen, Knight, Bishop, and Rook are all pointing towards black castle king.
c) h7 square is weak and has no defense of black king.

All this reasons are enough to point out that there is definitely a mating attack in this position,
so here it is:
a) Look at h7 square…which can be opened by bishop sacrifice.
b) Then look at white knight on f3 square, if it goes to g5 square it covers h7 square.
c) Then look at Queen on e2 square, it can go to h5 square if knight clears her way by moving to g5
square.

Hence there is definitely a mating pattern in this position…..

So after thinking on it; I found the exact move sequence that the position was demanding.
a) Bxh7 then Ng5+ then Qh5 then Qh7 mate #

..Kxh7

NKC VOL-1
My Stunning Chess Games

16. Ng5+! This move forces black king to move again as in case of any knight check the only way to escape
is by making king to move. 17
..Kg8

17. Qh5! Controls open h-file & completely trapping black king in mating net, now its end of black as he
will be checkmated on white’s next move & black has no defense & no escape from Qh7#.

White plays Qh5!

Black understood that & resigned. Black resigns after being stunned! White wins 1-0

KEY POINTS:
1) Early development of pieces. (Bd3, Nc3, Nf3, Qe2, Re1, Rf1)
2) Think twice before sacrificing material & don’t play a poor sacrifice. (Nxf2)
3) Working king to safety. ( Kd2, Kc1)
4) Play, what position demands & not what u want. ( Bxh7+)
5) Exact calculation before sacrificing material, to get decisive attack on opponent’s king. (Bxh7+)
6) Creating mating net around opponent’s king using combination & co-ordination of pieces.
(Bxh7+, Ng5+, Qh5, Qh7#)

1) d4…controls center squares c5, e5, gains space, & opens diagonal for black bishop.
Nf6…good move, it activates black knight in center which is best place for it, & knight also stops e4
as it can capture it.

2) e4…giving a gambit, sacrificing a center pawn with an idea of NxP, then white to play Bd3, thus
attacking knight & making black knight to move again, thus white gains development at cost of a

b6…idea is to fianchetto black bishop on b7.

11) Rhe1…activates rook in center.


Qf6
Now take a look at the position on the board,
White is completely developed with all active pieces, while on the contrary black’s position is
weak, with king still in the center, holes in position, & inactive pieces like rook’s & bishop.
Thus White has enough compensation for 2 pawns gambit or sacrifice.

White achieves superior position in compensation for material.


Thus it is imbalance in position between white & black.

Qf7…anticipates d5, which unleashes bishop power by attacking black queen, discover attack.
& moreover that pawn attacks black c6 knight at the same time, so either Queen falls or
Knight falls. So its Discover Double Attack.

White plays d5!

15) d5!! Now take a look at the position on the board, & take following aspects into consideration.
a) Black’s king is in center on e8 square, & white’s rook is on e1 square which means that
Black’s e6 pawn is pinned & it cannot capture if white plays d5 pawn.
b) Now d5 pawn of white attacks c6 knight , while it clears way for ferocious bishop that
Put pressure along a1-h8 diagonal, especially on hanging pawn g7.
c) Surprisingly black’s c6 knight has no good squares to go on.
1) If Black plays, Ne7 then…white plays dxe, now
If black plays dxe then white plays Qd8# & black is mated.
If black plays QxP then white plays RxQ & black will be mated on next move.
2) If black plays, Nd8 then … White plays, dxe,
If black plays Nxe, RxN & now if black plays, dxR then it is mate for black.
If black plays QxR, then Re1 takes black queen, so black plays QxR & white plays NxQ,
Thus advantage with white with active pieces and a superior position with queen on
The board, while black has hanging pieces & pawns & worst is king in the center.
3) If black plays, Nb8 then… White plays dxe
Now if black plays dxe, then white wins with Qd8#
If black plays, Qxe then that’s also bad move which gives winning position for white.

O-O Black rightfully understood the situation & decided for king’s safety rather than saving c6 knight.

17) Qc3…making a strong Bishop, Queen Battery that attacks g7 square.


Bb7…ignores threat & develops piece, while activates his rooks.

White plays Rxe6! to deflect black Queen from defense of g7 pawn

18) Rxe6! This move is made to decoy or lure black queen from defense of g7 square, now if Black plays,
QxR, then White plays, Qxg7 which is mate for black.
c5.. Clears the diagonal for bishop

19) Ng5! Attacks black queen & at the same time defends white rook, now black queen has to move in case
of a knight attack. But where…not e7 because it is covered by white rook, not d7 as it is also covered by 6th
rank white rook,& if black queen leaves 7th rank then its win for white with checkmating move Qxg7#

White plays Ng5! & it’s all over for black.

Black resigns after being stunned! White wins 1-0

KEY POINTS:
1) Sacrificing material for activating pieces on attacking squares. ( c3, e4)
2) Developing pieces swiftly. ( Bishops, Queen, Rooks, Knights)
3) King safety, queenside castling. (O-O-O)
4) Activating all pieces before starting an attack.
5) Attacking Minor pieces with pawns to gain momentum. (c4)
6) Pawn storm inside opponent’s territory. (d5)
7) Looking for tactics like pin, decoy, back rank mate.

Note: Creating imbalance means having difference in position between your pieces & your opponent’s
pieces, either having more or less material in the game, thus creating imbalance in a chess game.

a) White’s king is completely safe.
b) Black’s king is in danger, as whites all pieces are pointing towards it.
c) Black queen & white square b7 bishop is inactive.
d) Now h-file is open with king trapped.
Now, h7 square is main focus, somehow white has to get queen & rook on h-file without
wasting a move.
If white knight goes on g5 square then it supports bishop & also queen can go on h7 as Ng5
support it. And hence I calculated bishop sacrifice.
Also if black played g6 to trap my bishop then I had Ng5 which supports bishop, then if black
plays f6 then forced exf..black can fight back but its king side is opened up with white having
attacking possibilities with activated rooks & queen &white has 2 pawns(+)…Accurate play will
lead white to win. So with every possible variation white has superior position & material
advantage with his king safety placed & well defended, which will definitely lead white to
victory with accurate play & exchanging blacks active pieces in order to cut down blacks
counter attack chances.

Black lost after being stunned! White wins 1-0

Smyslov, former world champion once said:


“I never played French defense in my entire life which is the dullest of all defense.”

Reason is that blacks c8 bishop is locked behind his own pawn structure, & more over if white plays
advance variation then there is less possibility of any pawn exchanges as center gets closed & no file,
diagonal, square opens for c8 bishop to get activated & while white attacks & black defends thus white has
advantage.

a) White queen is on h-file, active & aggressive & also can move on 5th rank.
b) White bishop is ready to go on e5.
c) White’s e2, white bishop is ready to go on c4 to attack, open black king.
d) White knight is on c3 which attack c4 pawn.
If you look at all these factors then, there is a definite attacking chance for white in this position
but how?
1) Both white bishops can go to e5 & c4 squares thus trapping black king in corner also white
queen can move h-file & 5th rank.
2) But how will e2 bishop go on c4 square, d5 pawn of black blocks it, so how to open it, hence
came Nxe4!! Then dxe4 is forced or white get bishop for free with NxB.
3) Also white defense is strong as e2 bishop also stops black queen from attacking back rank.
4) Nxe4 is a clearance sacrifice to clear a2-g8 diagonal for white’s e2 bishop, which does both
job of attacking black king & defending white’s weak back rank from white queen.

1) e4…opening with e4 results in open type games, where there are plenty of opportunities for attack, with
open files, diagonals, back ranks etc. Hence I will suggest a beginner to play e4 as it would definitely
improve his attacking skills; however it is a matter of taste whether you play e4, d4, c4, and f4. Whatever u
play, u must play it well.
c6.. Initial move of CARO KANN Defense, a very solid defense which is favorite of many grandmasters
Its idea is to attack e4 on 2nd move by playing d5, thus equalizing position after exchange of pawns.

2) d4..Ideal pawn centre to control c5, d5, e5, f5 squares


d5.. Challenging e4 gaining share of centre control

3) Nd2 in order to keep initiative, developing piece knight & keeping tempo, by not capturing e4xd5,
protecting e4 in due course. Here Nc3 is also playable, but Black’s bishop on f8 may pin, Nc3 and result
you in backward double pawn weakness, after exchanging.
dxe4

4) Nxe4 advantage white, because knight is well placed & deadly attacking piece when at centre, so closer
the knight to enemy camp, the more deadly & strong it becomes.
Nf6… black immediately challenges white knight because white knight is strong. So a good strategy is
exchanging weak knight for a strong knight while developing a piece. This is Tartakower variation.

5) Nxf6+…in order to create double pawn & maintain tempo, white got equal exchange , but created
weakness of double pawns in black’s kingdom.
exf6.. gxf6 would have weaken pawn structure & black’s chances of castling king side would be
endangered.
Capturing exf6 gives good protective pawn structure, than capturing gxf6.

Final Word
92
So, how was the Ride? Thrilling Enough?
Finally I wanted you to know that, whether you are a Beginner or a Master level player in chess,
u will get a good game almost always when u try to follow some basic chess principals in each
and every game u play. Chances of committing mistakes are less when you follow some basic
chess principals laid by great masters of the chess game from their experience over the past years.

Try to learn few popular chess openings that suite your style of play, moreover instead of
mugging up opening moves blindly, try to understand the reason behind them. Also try to
understand various themes in middle game & endgames that arise in these openings, by playing
through & analysis of master games played by top grandmasters in chess. Understand the plan &
motif behind moves played. Also try to analyze your own played chess games that you won or
lost, in this way you will improve your chess playing strength. Only in this way you will improve
your chess playing skills, logical thinking, strength & imagination that will help you to develop as
an Expert chess player.

Finally, Thoughts of few great chess personalities:


Emanuel Lasker: When you see a good move wait - look for a better one.
Mikhail Tal: “Speed of development is the first priority, and the open position renders each extra tempo
especially valuable.”

Korchnoi: “Better to carry out a wrong plan logically than to play with no plan at all.”

Smyslov: “Chess playing demands the development of analytical skill. The ability to analyze is a very
important quality for the improvement of a player, helping him to realize his errors & mistakes not only on
chessboard, but also, probably, in life.”

Botvinnik: “Chess, like any creative activity, can exist only through the combined efforts of those who have
creative talent, and those who have the ability to organize their creative work.”

Vainstein: “The philosophy of chess is the philosophy of sharp, logical conflict, resolved by
explosive means.”

About Me: Myself, Nitin Chatur working in the field of Mechanical engineering, is a professional
chess player now-a-days. I started playing chess at age of 24, initially playing in college I almost
lost every time I played chess & my friends taunted & treated me as a loser, it was only then I
decided to punch them back by improving my mental strength & sharpening chess playing skills.
So taking some time off my studies, I started learning chess to play systematically, I improved
slowly but surely, this also improved my interest in chess day by day and finally after a fair
amount of time I was good enough to compete with those idiots, Amazingly I knocked them off
by becoming College Chess champion for the year 2009; at college annual sports, during my final
year before graduating.

Please let me know which games you liked here in my book & have this book helped you to
improve your chess playing strength. Also suggest me improvements, ideas, your expectations
for my upcoming books. My Website: www. Divineboy.co.cc

Glossary 93

Active piece: A piece that is developed and is actively participating in the conduct of the game. Active
pieces provide the basis for attack.

Back rank: A player’s own first rank.

Back rank mate: Checkmate deliver by playing a queen or rook to an opponent’s back rank when the king
is kept from moving out of check by its own pawns.

Closed game: A game in which the center is closed, the piece that has the best mobility is the knight in such
positions.

Capture: The act of moving one of your pieces to a square occupied by one of your opponent’s pieces,
thereby removing your opponent’s piece from the board. Once a piece is captured, it is gone for the rest of
the game.

Check: Refers to when the king is attacked. When the opponent threatens to capture the king on his next
move, the king is “in check.”

Castling: A special move for the king, under certain circumstances, the king can move two squares to the
left or right towards one of the rooks, and then place that rook on the square immediately next to it on the
opposite side.

Checkmate: Refers to when the king is attacked, and there is no way to prevent it from being captured in
the next turn. Checkmate ends the game; the player whose king is checkmated loses the game.

Clearance sacrifice: To sacrifice a piece in order to vacate the square it was standing on.

Development: Moving a piece out early in the opening to a square where it will play a more active role.

Deflection: Refers to when one piece is forced to move away from a square where it is needed for some
reason. When it happens, the piece is deflected from its square.

Discovered check: The check that results because one piece moves & the piece behind it gives check.

Double check: Refers to when the king is put in check by two pieces at once.

Discovered attack: The movement of a piece or pawn that results in an attack by an unmoved piece, The
stationary piece is now able to attack, because the piece that was moved previously blocked the attack.

Double attack: A simultaneous attack by a single piece or pawn on two pieces of the opponent. (Fork)

En passant: Refers to a special pawn capture, where one pawn captures another that has advanced two
squares to land on the square immediately to its left or right. On the very next turn & only on the very next
turn the pawn may capture the enemy pawn as though it had advanced only one square.

Exchange: Giving up a rook (more valuable piece) for a bishop or knight (less valuable piece than a rook)

File: A vertical row of squares. The chessboard has eight files.

NKC VOL-1
My Stunning Chess Games

Fianchetto: The placement of a bishop on b2 or g2 for white & b7 or g7 for black. Moves played on flank.

Gambit: Any opening that contains a planned sacrifice of material, usually to promote rapid development
or control of the center.

Major pieces: Queen, Rook. Minor pieces: Bishop, knight.

Mating net: A position where one player has mating threats

Open file: A file that is either completely or relatively cleared of pawns & pieces, so that if a rook were
posted on the file it would control all or most of the squares along it.

Outpost: A safe square near enemy territory that is protected by one’s own pieces and is subject to effective
occupation.

Rook Lift: Developing rook on a vertical file thus lifting it up

Passed pawn: A pawn that no longer can be captured or blocked by another pawn so long as no power
changes files by capturing

Pin: A piece or pawn that is immobilized because it stands between its king & an opponent’s piece that
would otherwise be attacking the king.

Pawn Promotion: When a pawn reaches the eighth rank, it must immediately become a piece of its own
color (except a king) at the player’s choice, regardless of what pieces he or she may still have on board.
Generally, a player will promote a pawn to a queen.

Resign: To admit defeat of a game before being checkmated.

Sacrifice: To deliberately give up material to achieve an advantage. The advantage gained may be an
attack, a gain of tempo, greater board control etc.

Skewer: An attack on a piece that results in the win of another, less valuable piece that is on the same rank,
file, or diagonal after the attacked piece is moved.

Strategy: The overall, long range plan for a chess game.

Tactic: A move or sequence of moves played to achieve some goal, such as the win of material or mate.

Tempo: Losing a tempo is disadvantageous. The best method of gaining time is to develop with a threat.

Trap: A move whose natural reply results in a disadvantage to the replying player.

Transposition: Occurs when a position (usually an opening position) is arrived through a different order of
moves than normal.

Under promotion: The promotion of a pawn to a piece other than a queen.

Variation: It is a different or unusual move played, which is not expected in a particular position.
