    Active Defence in the Endgame

    In the endgame, there is nothing more important than the activity. With fewer pieces on the board, the difference in the activity of the remaining forces becomes very important. Therefore, the passive defence almost never works in the endgame.

    This is true even from a psychological point of view. Since the endgame arises after hours of playing, players are often exhausted. Hence, opting for a stubborn passive defence that requires a lot of energy is a difficult task.
    When defending difficult endgames, do not hesitate to sacrifice material for the sake of activity.
    For sure, after studying this lecture, you will start prioritizing active continuations in all the endgames.

    Below, you shall take a look at one of the model games.

    Active Defence in the Middlegame

    Just like in the endgame, passive defence is rarely a good strategy in the middlegame. When our opponent has an advantage, our main task should be to change the course of the game. We should always try to make the opponent's play uncomfortable from a practical point of view. Therefore, in such cases, the psychological value of the move is more important than its objective strength.
    Imagine a position in which your opponent has a stable advantage and a clear plan for converting it. By going for an active counterplay (even if not entirely correct), you will force him to calculate variations. Hence, there will be a higher probability that your opponent will go astray.
    In the model examples provided here, you will see that this defensive strategy works very well even at the highest level.

    Below, you can take a look at one of the model examples.
