Step by Step: Calculation #32
By Mark Donlan
Step by Step: Calculation is designed to improve your visualization and calculation skills. The premise is simple: find the winning move in the first diagram and then calculate the win from the second diagram and determine how it relates to the first. On occasion follow-up questions will be asked relating to various sidelines. For best results, set the position up on the board and think for as long as you need without moving the pieces.
