Honorata's Harmony

with WFM Honorata Kucharska

Chess is a game of strategy and each piece has its unique function that contributes to the harmony of the game. The pieces work together to protect the king, attack the opponent's pieces, and control the board.

This is where Honorata's Harmony kicks in. The 20-year-old Polish WFM was actually a fearless attacking player. But the more she got into chess, the more she was delighted by the power of positional play, and how all pieces can be used to their full advantage. 

Her rating soon went over 2200, and although studying computer-science, she is focusing on achieving her WIM title. So far, she reached all 3 norms for WIM and her first WGM norm!

Honorata's Harmony is all about understanding the roles of each chess piece, which is crucial for developing a successful playing style.



Here are a couple of other games with the same Sicilian, Velimirovic attack moves, but none of the White players dared to sacrifice their knight on move 11, and some of them lost their game!
