    Why play the main line when you can instead play a perfectly reasonable move that confused your opponent? GM Finegold is full of these tricks, and today he illuminates one more - the "mysterious" Qd2. Where is she going? Why does she want to be there? Apparently there's a method to the madness since in both of these games the queen invades Black's castle quickly. In game two, Ben "accidentally" copies a famous GM for most of the game. That's a nice surprise! | Ver video

    • Defeating "Drawish" Players | Part 1: The Repeater!

      Making her Chess.com debut, FM Alisa Melekhina shows her modesty with a loss against a GM. Her lesson: don't just shuffle your pieces around expecting to draw. Higher-rated players know some secrets for overcoming complacency, and here White creates just enough of an imbalance to put Melekhina back on her heels. She's about to be a lawyer - not taking her advice would be criminal. | Ver video

    • The King's Indian Defense: Beating the Fianchetto System–Part 1

      GM Eugene Perelshteyn

      Coach Eugene reveals another pet system against a supposed Anti-King's Indian System. This time his antidote involves an early ...c6 (he likes this move in several KID setups!) against the Fianchetto System. Another hallmark of this line is giving up the bishop pair but closing the position in a way to favor the knight pair. Watch him slowly unravel White's position in a pair of games! | Ver video

    • What Would Magnus Do? - Part 2

      GM Alex Yermolinsky

      GM Yermolinsky is back with perhaps the most complicated rook-and-pawn endgame in any video we've ever done. The game wasn't played by the World Champion, but he has a strong suspicion he knows how Magnus Carlsen would have played it. Despite the computers knowing the best line, Yermolinsky encourages a mix of calculation and intuition. In the end, he leaves a bit of work up to you - message him with your analysis and he will see if you've done good work! | Ver video

    • Magnus Stands Alone! - Part 2

      GM Alex Yermolinsky

      Was it a close call, or was it just another day at the office for Magnus? GM Yermolinsky examines how he handles a worse middlegame against GM Anish Giri. You'll learn a little bit of everything - Grunfeld ideas, King's Indian basics, pawn structure exceptions, and most importantly, how to act with conviction rather than defend passively. The World Champ sees White underdeveloped and knows just when to offer a pawn and seize play. Could any other GM avoid the loss? Yermolinsky doesn't think so. | Ver video

    • Evaluation and Planning! - Part 4

      GM Melikset Khachiyan

      Today GM Khachiyan opens up his book on the classics. This instructive position from a former World Champion shows how simple chess can be once you master positional elements and have a solid tactical foundation. Black's Scheveningen structure seems solid enough, but our author's "clues" show you what White needed to see to pry open the files and the king. Open sesame! | Ver video

    • Roman's Novelty Shop: Queen's Gambit Declined Novelty!

      GM Roman Dzindzichashvili

      The Queen's Gambit Declined. Game doesn't heat up until move 20, right? Not today - GM Dzindzichashvili shows you that some early queen sorties can create dynamic play before either king gets castled. Watch and learn when White or Black can go pawn grabbing, and when the pawns are laced with hemlock. Take the wrong pawn at the wrong time, and Dzindzi will give you a big batch of "I told you so." | Ver video
