Gaining Space with Various Openings

Apr 4, 2017, 12:34 PM |

Here are 5 of my games from the Marchand Tournament.  Next year will be the 40th anniversary.

The English Opening

Gaining Space with the Anti Sicilan - Advanced French Structure

The Leningrad Dutch

The Caro-Kann Defense

Closed Sicilan Structure


I was not adequately prepared for the English Opening. Finding the moves cost me time on the clock.

Need to view Kingside Attacks. Prepare to take advantage of Kingside weaknesses.

Think more carefully in critical positions. Go over d4-e5 pawn structure.

Check consequence of moves.
