This is video #4 from the “Beginner to Chess Master” playlist. Presented are the definitions of the 3 types of files in chess along with some examples of what that looks likes. Understanding file types will be especially useful for our major pieces and knowing where they function well. Another term, pawn break, is given a definition as well. An incomplete example game, only 14 moves deep, is shared where we can observe the moments at which the file types change, along with what it is that creates this change. Sharing these terms along with their definitions is a start to developing a very important part of a chess player’s game, namely his/her “internal dialogue”.
Beginner to Chess Master Playlist:
I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who learned how to play from my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
