An attacking player’s mentality frequently scans the position for forward and forceful moves. This 25-move encounter provides us with an excellent example of attacking play.

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by 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.
