The following move-order poses some tricky problems if we also intend to use the recommended Grand-Prix Attack setup against the Modern Defence with 2...g6. I couldn't find a good way around this move-order so White may have to come up with an additional attacking scheme vs The Modern.
What say you ChessMood Team, all suggestions/ideas/antidotes are very welcome:
1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 d6 3. f4 g6 4. Nf3 Bg7 5. Bc4 Nc6 6. O-O e6 7. d4 cxd4 8. Nb5 Nge7 9. Bb3 O-O 10. Nbxd4 Na5 11. Be3 a6 12. Qe1 b5 13. Rd1 Qc7 14. e5 dxe5 15. fxe5 Nxb3 16. axb3 Bb7 17.

sir my opponent was a gm and he played 11...a6 with the idea of b5 and the engine is showing better for black.How should i continue after a6.
sir my another opponent was also gm he played 9...Na5 for that also how should i continue.
Tomorrow, at the same time, instead of stream, we'll have a simul game with GM Ter-Sahakyan Samvel.
You just need to be there 5 minutes before the event and in chat write your nickname in lichess.
See you tomorrow!
Hi guys! I am looking for some good partners to improve my chess skills in online games on lichess.org and chess.com . My ratings vary from time controls, but they are round 1650. My lichess profile: giorgoskehagias509 and my chess.com profile: Giorgos_Kechagias. You can also contact me in my gmail: [email protected] Finally, I am located in GMT+2 zone Greece. I can play in any time controls but I prefer 5+3, 8+1, and 10+0, in order to stay focused. See you soon guys ;)
Coach, maybe I'm missing it in the videos but I am trying to figure out how best to continue when the opening goes 1.d4 Nf6 2. c4 c5 3. d5 b5 4. Nf3... does black leave the tension and play d6/g6/Bg7 as usual and just try to transpose? I was looking on the lichess database and it seems like white scores very well in this move order, and I've ran into it several times now.
I started to record a new course about how to get an advantage against Philidor Defense.
The 1st section is ready.
If you have any questions, feel free to post it here.
With best wishes,
P.S COGRO! (Constant Growth)
I just joined the pro member with the hope to improve my chess performance, I am rated at around 1600, and i hope to get to 2000 this year. I am a working person, I only have around 2 hrs/day (at max) to train on the weekdays and 3-5 hrs on the weekend. The problem with me, i dont have training partner and most of the time I dont have the willpower to train, please help me coach. Thank you.
I played a Rapid tournament yesterday and I had the chance to test our Chessmood openings with quite a success, but I had a pair of sicilians that I do not think are in our repertoire, one being missing for a long time...
First game I was white and played 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 d6 3.f4 Nf6 4.Nf3 and he played 4...e6, I think this is not anywhere, and the question is...where should I put my bishop? If Bc4, Nxe4 trick is an option, If Bb5, he simply plays Bd7. What am I missing?
And my complain comes from the line I had in a Sicilian game with black. Moves were 1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 Nc6 3.Bb5. It's the line recommended with white, but we do not have any video adressing it as black, since GM Gabuzyan course comes from the order 2...d6. What are the best lines after 3...Nd4 4.Bc4 and 4.Nf3??
Hi myself abhishek yadav. You can call me Abhi. I am 1465 FIDE rated guy and hoping to find a good partner for playing chess and also an hr daily classical game study. Because sometimes my mind stuck to read books. I know GM Avetik's method and I also apply same ideas in study but problem is how to find plans is a big issue.
Let me show a position.
I spent 10 mins on this position and my main thought is to find a way to open centre with f6 but I do not saw the follow up well. White's king is in the centre so I need to punish him for that. Avetik sir said focus on classics. I got that but before any game lesson we have to analise game alone na and there I face issues. I am doing fine against 2000 chess.com blitz and recently had nice victory against FM but who cares for blitz.
So,I hope I will find a partner for study. But no beginner please.
I am not trying to insult anyone. I just need a player above my strength. Anyways my positional chess is better than tactical but I do not mind styles.
