More Lunging

“When you see a good move, look for a better one”  – Emanuel Lasker

Lasker’s advice is probably the best single piece of chess advice ever given. Over the past few months, I’ve been exploring the opposite, which I’ve taken to calling “Lunging”.

Lunging at the opponent, rather than building up the position and advancing in serried array (“coordinated formation”) seems to be the cause of much difficulty encountered in chess games, at least at amateur level.
