Hey Champions! Just finished recording the Rb8!N that I mentioned in the course.
Before we edit it and upload, here I am offering you to find solutions to the positions that you will meet in the course.
In all the positions Black to move!
Hope you can crush white's king everywhere :)
I got surprised in the opening today and i am curious what would the best answer to my opponent line. I am white : 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 g6 3 Nc3 Bg7 4 e4 d6 5 Be2 0-0 6 Nf3 e5 7 0-0 Nh5!? . Very tricky line i dont know whats best here for white. If u have a suggestion i would be welcome tx a lot :)
I would like to make the Berlin Defense my main response to 1.e4, as I particularly find the Berlin Endgame very interesting to play with Black. However, I'm not sure how Black can play for a win in the variation 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.O-O Nxe4 5.Re1, as it seems that here the structures become very symmetrical, and black has some issues with coordination, making it hard for black to generate winning chances. Is it still possible to outplay white from these quiet lines, or should I only use the Berlin against strong opponents and something else against lower rated opponents?
I have held back this obvious question for awhile now, ever since GM Gabuzyan Hovhannes' 'Crushing all the Sicilian's Sidelines' came out, hoping that someone else would ask it, but since no one else has, here goes. What does the ChessMood family think of GM Gabuzyan's antidote to GM Avetik's recommendation against the Sicilian, and how should White best meet the challenge. Gabuzyan's antidote goes as follows:
1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 d6 3.f4 g6 4.Nf3 Bg7 5.Bc4 Nc6 6.0-0 e6 7.d4 cxd4 8.Nb5 Nge7 9.Bb3 0-0 10.Nbxd4 Na5 11.c4 a6 intending 12.Be3 b5!? Novelty =
My friend and I tried to find a line against the Modern Maroczy Bind ideas a long time ago.
What are your thoughts on our line?
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 g6 5.c4 Nf6 6.Nc3 Nxd4 7.Qxd4 d6 8.Be2 Bg7 9.Bg5 0-10.Qd2 a5 11.Rd1! (Only 11.0-0 and 11.b3 was discussed in the video) The idea behind this move is to play b3. Black cannot play ...a4 here because of 12.e5! 11...Be6 12.b3
White has more space and it is hard to find counterplay for Black.
I have chessbase 15 and I want to train openings... how do I do this I have chess openings wizard which is really good but I paid for chessbase and I want to use it at full potential. This book is really helpful
but it doesn’t have what I’m looking for and it looks like chessbase can’t do what Opening wizard can do so I recommend
Ok so chess base has a training feature here is a demo of how to set it.
Hello Coach and ChessMood family,
Of course I usually stick to Chessmood openings but sometimes I like to play casual Chess with friends and play something different. I have been fooling around with The Modern/Pirc defence for black against e4 and the Bishop's Opening/Urusov's Gambit for white against e5. What are your thoughts on these openings? Are they classed as fundamental openings that can bring my level up? Thanks :)
