87b_Attack the UNCASTLED KING
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

"Naked and Afraid" (Thanks to User: tamar for this)

<How to attack an uncastled king:

< 1. Make sure your pieces are developed and your king is safe first (ahem "Castle").

< 2. Prevent your opponent from castling.

< 3. Open all the lines to the king!

< 4. Use your whole army. <<>>>>>>>

How do we exploit an opponent’s king that is stranded in the middle? How do we punish the opponent for delaying his development and castling? The truth is that these questions require a precise approach and good sequence if we want to be successful.

<<Material> is nothing compared to checkmate!>

Look for <focal points>, especially if your opponent doesn't castle!

‘The problems posed by the decision to castle are much misunderstood and thereby underrated.

… So, my new advice on castling: it is castling is to be considered a waste of time wrongly expended when there is almost always something more important to achieve. Thus castling is a passive move that nurtures the hope of king safety. I believe that a player who learns how and when to delay castling will certainly improve his/her play. Very often that cherished hope of safety is ill founded. I therefore believe that the maneuver of castling is the most dangerous of all moves and the decision thus requires more attention to delicate judgment.

Not only should one not rush to castle, but should delay that passive maneuver for as long as good judgment relates that there are more urgent, if only slightly better, tasks to accomplish.’
