Weak Squares

Weak Squares-Weak squares can be defined as squares where your opponent can safely post his pieces. Weak squares provide an entry point into your territory and are often the precursor to an attack. Naturally, if you can exploit the weak squares of your opponent, then they will work for you. (Definition- From "Introduction to Chess Strategy for the novice player" by Bill Whited)
