Square concepts

Dirk Baechle


The following text, available in HTML as well as the regular PDF version, contains some basic chess concepts and advice, presented in the form of tasks. It was prepared for the Distractions column of the TeX online PracTeX Journal, using the program ChessTask, and is aimed at hobby players of any strength. The given positions are all taken from my own games for the chess club SK Soltau, so they are not constructed examples but actually happened. While the tasks themselves are kept rather terse, I try to elaborate things a bit further when I unveil the correct moves at the end of the article. So even if you did not find the solution in first place, you can hopefully learn from the additional information.
