Lezione 1 Tattica

sequence of capture

While this basic tactic is important, it is ignored by most if not all chess books.

Dan Heisman definition of Counting is: "Determining whether any series of captures might lead to losing material".

Dan Heisman definition of Safe is: "A piece is safe if no possible sequence of exchanges on the square it occupies will lose material, assuming best play".

There are five ways to save an attacked usafe piece:
1 Move
2 Capture
3 Interpose
4 Protect the piece
5 Counterattack (the most dangerous)
including pinning, checking, attack another, capture.

In the case of the King, only the initial three are applicable.
