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
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!!Back to Tactics page
