Webinar 77. Knight on the Rim Is Dim!?

Webinar 77. Knight on the Rim Is Dim!?

FM Gertsog | 7 abr. 2021
Dear Chess Friends! Once Dr. Siegbert Tarrasch said: "Knight on the rim is dim”, meaning that knights should be developed to the center where they control a greater number of squares. A knight on the edge of the board controls only 4 squares and some of them can be even occupied with your own pieces. It’s very often when one player puts the knight to the edge file, but the other player can’t take the advantage of it.  How to play in such positions? Of course, you may focus on the other side...

FM Gertsog | 24 mar. 2021
Dear Chess Friends! How to get better in calculation and tactics? Of course, the answer is by solving puzzles. Yes, it helps, but only in case if you solve them following a proper procedure. Usually, chess players solve puzzles using their mobile devices. They don’t calculate the line, but try to guess the move. And, of course, they don’t predict their opponent’s response. No need, the engine replies. According to my experience the best way to improve in tactics is to learn tactical motifs ...

Webinar 74. How to Attack and Defend on the Flank

FM Gertsog | 19 mar. 2021
Dear Chess Friends! You know many chess players start the attack on the kingside immediately after they finish their development. Sometimes this plan makes sense, but very often doesn’t. How to realize that the position allows you to start the attack? The center indicates it. When the center is closed with pawn chains or pawn structure is already defined there, the attack on the flank is the most logical plan. It can be either an attack on the enemy king or just an attack to gain some posit...

FM Gertsog | 17 mar. 2021

Webinar 73. How to Self-study Chess?

FM Gertsog | 10 mar. 2021
Dear Chess Friends! Actually, studying chess is a complicated process and only a few chess lovers can do it properly on their own (without a coach). Chess players usually do some chess activities: they solve puzzles, play games, watch chess videos, but don’t progress. Or just progress a little. The reason is that they don’t have any training program or just don’t do chess activities that can make them stronger. In other words, if you want to improve in general it’s not enough to play blitz ...
