Hello ChessMood Family! Welcome to the course "Defend with Honor."
While it's much more interesting to attack and have the initiative in our hands, sometimes opponents will attack us and we'll need to defend.
Many chess players don't like to defend, however, hopefully, after watching this course, you'll do it with more pleasure.
The key is to know the main principles and Grandmaster Johan Hellsten will teach you.
The course is divided into the following sections:
2. Defensive exchange
5. The brave King
6. The escaping King
9. Intermediate Moves
14. Tactical Tricks
15. Accepting Sacrifices
16. The Process of Elimination
Ready to become a better defender?
Let’s get started!
