[video] Chess Study #1: Jindrich Fritz, 1965

Hi all,

I have decided to start a new series on chess studies.
Chess studies are an excellent way to train your thinking, visualization and calculation skills.

A chess study is a chess puzzle where White either wins or draws.
It normally resembles a position from a practical game of chess which is the greatest advantage of a chess study over it’s somewhat more artificial brother the chess problem.

In the title of the post I will mention the composer of the study and the year in which it was composed.

As always, leave your comments below!
