OK, good mate!
I'm really liking Gligoric's play after watching this series.Hopefully more to come.
Thnak you all as well!
If I can start to look a chess board and see all this I will be pretty good. Thank you for a fine teaching.
It just gets better and better what beautiful and instructive games; the game from the Nimzo Indian w/ hanging pawns ... instructive also for Caro players ...like two games from the recents Candidates' match from the Gligoric variation. Thank you so much GM Bojkov!
Keep in mind that Keres was one of the strongest players from that era!
Great video for d4 players in particular. Some solid opening lines that play into fantastic midgames with some beautiful end game moves (Bb4 at the end of the Keres game, for example). Really enjoyed the video. Thanks!
Great lecture on development, initiative and attack on the opponents king. Thank You!
These were wonderful games accompanied by very nice discussion. Thanks.
Very good games. For mere mortals, GM Bojkov's explanations are a little too quick for me, but I suppose that the variations are so many that he has to tell them all quickly.
Gligoric really was a great player, and probably at or near his best in these games played in the 1950s.
I must go over this video again to try and absorb more of the tactics.
by GM Dejan Bojkov
Gligoric's use of the most common central pawn "weaknesses" in the following two games is amazing, and as Grandmaster Bojkov explains - Gligoric uses them to launch a couple of ruthless kingside attacks that his strong opponent's could not endure. First we see how an IQP can turn into a kingside assault quickly, then we see the last time the Paul Keres was ever checkmated in a tournament game.
