Chess Kit Training Tactics Storming the castled position

Fred Reinfeld says, "Castling does not automatically insure the King's safety". Also he gives a couple of clues that will guide you to many an impressive victory. He has published more than 200 problems under this section.

I have added some master games as well. Hope this will make your study interesting. Observe techniques used in other master games as well.

For example castling on opposite side, advancing pawns towards the castled king, mobilizing pieces towards the castled king, Switching from queenside attack to king side attack and the use of centre squares for such a traffic. All these will give a deep understanding of strategy.

Also observe how each piece combines effectively with other pieces including pawn. This will improve the tactical skill.

Good Luck!!
