If Bd5 after d6 disc.+ then both exd5 and dxe7 look good for white (the latter because the pawn threatens the queen with promotion)
What about Bd5 after d6+, it blocks the check and it attacks the queen. So the queen has to move out say to a3 and then black takes on d6 and white takes on d5 which leads to a very unclear position for me.
Am I missing something here?
Hope to get a reply although the video is very old, it's a nice video though!
I LIKED YOUR PLAYING STYLE.
Good job. Learned a lot. Another lesson or more on Space Advantage would be great. Thanks!
good quality video thank you
icecoldalex, yes you're correct.
Fantastic lecture Alex THX!
High quality instruction. Thank you.
In this video, and onlt this video of yours, everytime you moved a piece, it made a loud noise. Were you moving real pieces, or was it the microphone?
It is really instrucitve how to see the right way to conduct attack on the queenside while defending with minimum effort blacks attack on the kingside which is looking violent at first. Tx for sharing the game
Very instructive for a lower level player such as myself. The comments on space are particularly helpful. I must try to follow basic principles as I don't have time for in depth study to improve my game. Thank you.
Alex, nice video. A quick question, what is the problem for black at 9:58 with him playing Nxc6? Is it white playing Nd5 putting pressure on the c6 knight and c7 pawn (as he can't defend the c6 knight with Bb7 due to Qb3+?
this a nice game
clear and informative
you explain things very well. very organized, clear and informative.
Advanced stuff. Alex is playing like Giorgi now.
by GM Alex Lenderman
Today Grandmaster Alex Lenderman delivers his fifth installment in the video series on playing with a space advantage. Reviewed today is perhaps one of Alex's best games, from certainly one of his best overall tournament performances. In the King's Indian, knowledge and experience in playing with a space advantage is both vital for your attack (on the queenside) and your defense (on the kingside). Watch as Alex displays "space mastery" against GM Rogelio Barcenilla...
