A fragment from the book by Y. Kirillova “The Art of Protection”. Part 32
It is not always possible to come out of the opening with the best position and at the end to fight for victory, you have to defend yourself. Sometimes it seems that the position is already “impossible to save”, a little more, and you will have to give up, but here is the only plan that still leads to a cherished draw.
Few people know the art of defense in the draughts game – this is certainly one of the indicators of the player’s skill. We express our gratitude to Yuri Kirillov for the book paradoxically no Man’s Land “The Art of Defense”. Perhaps it is in it that you will find the party that was once “not saved”.
