Ok here's another engame position I had lot of difficulties solving before. White to move and
win. I am on check so I have move king. I am trying to calculate what if Kxf2.
King takes h2. I have to get to the square and stop g3. If he goes g3 after I
take f pawn I just take with h-pawn. So he has to take with the king here I
can step in the square and g3 and I am fast enough with my knight.
Mating with queen against knight was biggest problem for me a while back. It seemed impossible to get opponents king to the edge of the board. But today
against Fritz 12 while I was waiting my opponent to move and using Jeremy
Silman's complete engame course as guide I suddenly nailed it! 1. Make a
box with a queen for a opponents king. Make it as small as possible.
walk into fork. It's okay if knight threatens either king or queen but not
3. Take notice that being one square diagonally away from knight or two
squares diagonally or horizontally is where it takes longest time for knight
to threaten you.
