Throughout this video course, we will study how to master sacrifices and the initiative in several aspects: opposite-coloured bishops, the bishop pair, the exchange sacrifice, launching an attack, and the good moment to sacrifice will be the topics covered in this first video course. The goal will be to teach you how to take advantage of certain material imbalances and convert them into victories! Using real games, analysed and explained; some of them being genuine masterpieces, this video course will be the ideal tool to learn how to conclude a game due to your initiative. Enjoy each part, and soak it up for your next victories!
