I recently published a video on the Maroczy Bind. It took me approximately two weeks to complete, during which time I utilized sources, including positions and examples, that have long been a part of my coaching program.

It may be helpful for those up to the 2100 rating level. Despite some minor flaws, I consider it to be a valuable free resource for those interested in this topic.

Here are the chapters and themes covered in the video, so you'll know what to expect when you click to watch:

- Maroczy formation
- White pawns breaks
- Simplification: Good and bad pieces to trade
- Pawn break a6-b5
- Example of a6-b5 pawn break
- Pawn-advance a5-a4
- Example of a5-a4 pawn advance
- Doubling pawns on the c-file: Bxc3
- Example of doubling c-pawns
- Pawn-break f5
- Example of f5 pawn break
- Pawn-advance g5
- Example of g5 pawn advance
- Kingside attack Be5-Qh4
- Example of Be5-Qh4 attack
- Pawn-advance e5
- Example of e5 pawn advance
- Trading the dark-square bishops
- Example of trading the DSBs
- The weirdest (and main-line) idea in the Maroczy
- Openings to get to the Maroczy
