4 Nightmare of Rossolimo

4. Nightmare of Rossolimo

Course 64 episodes
(3 hours 28 min)
Creators GM Avetik Grigoryan GM Hrant Melkumyan

In the 2018 World Championship Match, the Rossolimo was Fabiano Caruana's primary weapon against Magnus Carlsen's Sicilian. 

However, after a few games, Caruana abandoned the Rossolimo and immediately switched to the mainline with 3.d4.

Turns out Carlsen had found improvements that made Black's life easier in this opening.

When our Grandmasters dived deep into the line Carlsen played, it became clear to them why Caruana had switched...

 

In this course, you'll learn the lines which Carlsen had in store against the Rossolimo.

Below are some positions from the course:
