GM Dorian Rogozenko writes: "The main goal of today's lecture is to show typical positions in which one side can successfully build up a standard attack. I also want to point out when planning to attack the opponent's king is a consequense of strategical aspects of the position, thus being the most optimal plan. The examples will be mostly from the modern practice, including my own games. I'll have such topics as attacking with pawns, attacking with pieces, the importance of open files in attack etc.
