Lately I have been drawn to Kramnik. A few year ago, when I bought his book "Kramnik: My Life and Games", co- authored with Iakov Damsky, I was struck by a few things....the force of his moves and concepts, the overall solidity and fluidity of his...

Perhaps I shouldn't have taken the World Champion too seriously. After all he is making everybody laugh at the press conferences. Carlsen said that having two Whites in a row was an advantage and one he was looking forward to. With these two Whi...

A game that shows Caruana's strategy. Carlsen chose a sterile line for his first of the two Whites he is getting. He tested Caruana's preparation and when the latter showed it they entered a symmetrical endgame position. Carlsen probably hoped t...

CONFRONTING A FALLACY AS OLD AS CHESS ITSELF THAT NIMZOVICH INTRODUCED IN 1929 I admit it, teaching chess without the moves being shown first, as hinted by Nimzovich, does sound crazy ― after all, everyone of us, ever since the Chess Dark Ages, ha...

Caruana tried, but failed to impress anybody. At first sight the move 6 b4 looks exciting and aggressive, but it was in fact a test of Carlsen's memory. And the World Champion passed it without problems. It is worth noting that Caruana again s...

The shortest game of the match so far and in fact there was only one critical moment in it. Carlsen opened with 1 c4, adding more options right from the start. Would Caruana try to go for QGD set-ups with 1...e6 or would he go symmetrical with 1...
