In today’s blog post, I am going to present you with one magnificent game played by a student of mine. In this game my student played against an International Master. In fact, these two players have played a match some time ago, but now, my student really managed to outplay his much stronger opponent following a set of easy to follow principles and techniques that can allow lower rated players to stand an equal chance against titled opponents. I hope you enjoy this video and spend some time on taking notes on the various tips and advice my student is sharing with you through his game. I am now going to analyze his game and demonstrate how the invincible International Masters do play mediocre chess when faced with the smooth play and ideas of a well prepared lower rated opponent. Enjoy:
thanks valeri for this !
Thanks a lot tiger, I enjoyed watching this video. Congratz to your student as well. That's the beauty of chess-combination of tactics and strategies! :-)
Very helpfull thank you

It's not easy. You gotta be better than him perhaps
Beautiful atrue master has spoken
Hi Valeri, nice video! but i wonder why you didn´t mention a possible exchange of bishops (poor black bishop vs strong white bishop)? Wouldnt that help black? via d6 for example. Thanks
Wonderful commentary. Thanks for this.
Thx Valery! Very good explanation!
nice work. i always believe chess is determined by strategy rather then tactics.
I really enjoyed the game your student played and your analyzis was really helpful. Thanks for posting this blog!
