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 :)
1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 g6 5.c4 Nf6 6.Nc3 d6 7.f3 Nxd4 8.Qxd4 Bg7 9.Be3 0-0 10.Qd2 Be6 11.Rc1 Qa5 12.Nd5!?
How should Black best proceed from here.
Dear Friends, Dear PRO Members!
I am adding this topic and kindly asking you to add here all your comments, where you feel there is a mistake in the course.
For every 1 hour course, we work many days, to try to provide you the best quality, but still we are human, and of course, there still will be some mistakes.
I will be just grateful if you add here the moments of the videos, where there is a mistake, and I will fix it.
Also, I love so much, that you watch the courses so carefully!
With best wishes,
I defend with caro-kann and there is one line where i cant win with black. Its the panov attack where white play like this 1.e4 c6 2. d4 d5 3 exd5 cxd5 4 c4 Nf6 5 Nc3 Nc6 6 Nf3 Bg4 7 cxd5 Nxd5 8 Qb3 Bxf3 and white goes for the drawish endgame . My question is if i play a lower rated opponent and i would like to win is there a way to avoid that endgame and get a middlegame where i could outplay him. Maybe then i should just avoid the caro and play sicilian accelerated dragon it would be tough as i nver really pllayed sicilian and i have no experiewnce with it. Let me know what u think guys :)
Hey all, when I say my coach about Rossolimo with b6 in the courses after b6 white plays Nh2 but my coach said that after b6 white has very interesting idea white plays a3 and after some move b4 and make some game on queenside... So what we must play when white plays with a3 and then b4?
I wanted to share a question in the Benko that I had from a game I played this last weekend in a tournament. I was playing black against a strong FM rated 2392, and ithe 5.Nc3 line he played 8. a4. I spent a good amount of my time trying to work this out and got myself in trouble first on the board and later on the clock.
Here are the moves : 1. d4, Nf6 2. c4, c5 3. d5, b5 4. cb, a6 5. Nc3, ab 6. e4, b4 7. Nb5, d6 8. a4
How can we best answer this move? I took the pawn, but didnt follow up well and got tied up.
