Chess Kit welcomes you to this new section: Assess the position.
These positions are not created by Chesskit. They are originally used to test
computer chess programs. Needless to say that many programs solve this within a
matter of seconds. These positions are not from opening and hence they do not
need opening book. And these positions are not end games, hence they do not need
table bases. The chess engines that are built in with the right strategy will be
able to pick the right candidate moves for analysis.
This section is brought to you by Chess Kit to develop your ability to see
various aspects of imbalance in the position to judge 'who stands better?' It is
up to you to prioritize and combine some of them to visualize dream positions,
then form a plan. Finally, generate candidate moves and calculate moves that
could lead to such dream position against the best possible defensive moves.
While it is important to write down everything in the beginning, you must try
and remember exactly what you thought both in terms of calculation and
assessment as you progress through several problems in this section.
Always be aware of time. It is important to take as much time as possible in
the beginning, you must try to cut short the time as you progress through
Please work on one position at a time to achieve the intended purpose. If you
do not have enough time to do so, please avoid reading through the
solution as you will lose the opportunity to develop your skills.
As you are learning through, please contribute to the next generation.
