I am writing because I am beginning to study the Maroczy bind and today in an OTB game I had the following opening (I was black) 1.c4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.Nf3 g7(I think that Nf6 should be better) and then the opponent played 4.e3 followed by 5.d4. What should be the plan against this? Can someone point me in the right direction? Or even better, the right video? I honestly could not find it... It should be somewhere though... Thanks in advance and let's keep the cogro mood!
How do you guys train calculation. I am right now follow the plans of studying classics. I watch them and learn concepts from them but in complicated games it's tough to calculate.
Any advice how to start training calculation?
I have 20 mins daily for calculation training and an hr for watching classics.
After may I will have 3 hr for training.
2nd question; How do u guys worked on pattern recognition skills? Do you first see the pattern then u solve examples or u solve pattern by urself then more examples?
Hi, I learned the Caro-Kann course, really interesting ideas! In particular I liked a lot the solution against the Dreev line.
If someone wants we could practice together on Chess.com! Let me know if you want :)
I have also a question: against 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 cxd5 4.Bd3 Nc6 5.c3 g6 6.Nf3 Nh6 or 6...Bg7 and the ...Nh6 how we can react?
I was watching some middlegame lessons and found this position. Only one game was played after c5 Bxb2so do you guys ever studied this position?
I played kan in past and same line but never saw c5. In the game Topalov's opponent took on b2 and then took on a1 and later lost.
Nice dark square play .
I like Bc5 more after Bd3
e4 c5 Nf3 e6 d4 cx Nxd4 e6 Bd3 Bc5 Nb3 Be7 Qg4 g6 Qe2 Nf6 Bh6 lines. My past experience says it's playable position but I do not studied modern theory
I ended in this position in one of my recent games. My opponent resigned. He quit on my move and honestly I don’t know what I would have done if he hadn’t. Any suggestions?
