Deflection

Most chess games are won or lost due to one player being more tactically alert than their opponent. A great device to have in your tactical toolbox is the idea of Deflection. Deflection is knocking away a defensive piece from performing its duty. This can be done by attacking the piece or luring it off of it’s square and away from what it needs to do. The position from the article is out of one of my student’s games. It’s one of the most difficult and complicated deflections I’ve ever seen but it is a fun way to show off the idea.
