Description : Defending well is one of the most important skills in all of chess. Not only does it help save bad positions, but it also allows a player to take more risks to play for a win when they have the confidence that they can fight back if things go wrong. The best players in the world get bad positions reasonably often, but they rarely lose-- this can be chalked up to defensive resilience when the position takes a turn for the worse. Lesson 1: Reacting when unprepared or otherwise caught in an opening disaster Lesson 2: Step by Step thinking in the endgame, preventing a winning plan Lesson 3: Making counterplay Lesson 4: Choosing the right piece exchanges Lesson 5: Practical decision making: defending lost positions and games where a draw is suitable
