Did I make that Move or was I forced?
I thought this video by David Puress(attached below) was absolute dynamite for divulging how to put pressure on multiple attacking pieces in order to make a pathway for your increased material gathering. I enjoyed more the element of cost attached to piece takes or exchanges of material at a lesser cost to yourself but heavily weighted against the opponent. I am a bit wary of using cost in exchange as this could be used by both my myself and my opponent to gain advantage in the form of feign/fake moves which dictate a certain course of action hence creating ‘Forcing’ play.
It is the knowing which type of play is being presented that I am currently working on…is it a straight forward exchange of material which is to my advantage or have I been duped, ‘Forced’ into making the exchange by a clever manipulative strategy.
