In chess, whenever a capture appears on the board, don’t be so quick to recapture. Sometimes, you have an in-between move that can help you strengthen your position or avoid disaster! The higher you climb in your chess rating, the more often you’ll be able to find these moves, and the more often your opponents will too.
I was just killing some time with this anonymous LiChess game, but it turned out to have several zwischenzugs, or in-between moves. The video at the bottom of this post goes over the game, and I’ve included a couple spots where you might want to pause the video as a tactical puzzle. Also, the image below gives one of the puzzles if you prefer to check that out first.
