This is a placeholder for the second video in the series "Thinking your Way to Chess Mastery."

 

We will study Gruenfeld Exchange theory and... understand it. :)

 

Two related games in this segment:  Bhat-Kudrin US Championship 2010 and Curt Hansen - Luke McShane, Malmo 2003.  We will update the latter game with recent findings.

Submit answers to the video questions as comments to this article, not in the video link itself.

    Hi:

    I really enjoyed the video. But, I am unable to figure out the answers to the questions posed in the video. Will you be publishing the correct responses in this article?

    my first thoughs after 21...b5 in bhat' game were to play d6 but didnt actually think there was anything after exd even after something like Re1 and began to look at variations with 22.Rc1 and trying to actually get counterplay on the king side by trading some pieces and pushing pawns but i dunno

    after 28...f5 I got the idea about leaving the bishop and attacking the f7 pawn and trap the rook but I was thinking of just Bh4 first, not too much difference

    We'll get into it when the video is posted.  The short answer is that white can make a draw with some difficulty after the queens are off, but keeping the queens on poses more problems (we'll look at the Hansen-McShane game buried inside the Bhat game).

    does the black win the game?

    So, was Bhat's fatal error the trading of the queens?
