Excellent video (both part 1 and 2). Like that you stick with ideas about squares and pressure, and stay away from "this line and that line".
You have the courage to recommend dxe instead of "preferred" fxe early on after f5 and fxe, and kept cool under pressure at the end where you could not easily capture, and the g4 square was potentially under pressure from the black queen.
This helps me understand where I can play Grand Prix better.
Thanks again Grandmaster.
at 20:23 just play Qg4+!! It wins!!!
GM Khachiyan, your games are tremendously interesting and creative. When your King could not castle for awhile you kept a cool head about you.
I love these video, but at 25:32 Dg4 chek and you take directly the rook
H i ,
Ive watched these two Grand Prix videos a couple times now and have begun having alot of fun with playing the Grand Prix . In fact Ive enjoyed it more than the Colle Zukertort Opening because of its lighting speed especially in lower levels like me. Anyway do u at all recomend using this opening when its not a Sicilian response for example I play E4 and black responds with E5 . ? Or is this attack only useful in a response mode to the Sicilian, also noticed on a site on line that some suggest the A3 move in quick fashion to tuck away the B4 move with the bishop keeping it in the attack. Cant wait to see a third video on this, thanx so much and if u can recomend a tool for researching this a bit further it would be much appreciated. One last thought is really a possibility also to play this on blacks side?
I really like this attack, as an 1e4 player I encounter the scillian a lot and this gives me some real direction!
huh? what was that about???
Thanx for the video, ive been looking for an opening to play both ways and it looks like something ill be looking into,im new on the site and this was the first video ive watched and loved it cant wait to see the first video on this attack . Once again thank u all for this awesome website!
After 1.e4 c5 2. Nc3 Nc6 3. f4 Qc7
What do you recommend?
I LIKE TO PLAY WITH EVERYONE UPPER THAN 1200.
