Webinar 81. The Value of the Center

Webinar 81. The Value of the Center

FM Gertsog | 7 Mei 2021
Dear Chess Friends! It’s difficult to overestimate the value of the center in a chess game. The pieces can reach any side of the board just in 1-2 moves if they are located in the center. That’s why the player who controls the center usually has the advantage. However, beginners often don’t pay attention to what is happening in the center, but play some random moves with their minor pieces and the queen. And this is your chance! What happens if a player neglects the center? How to take the ...

Webinar 80. Learn from Ian Nepomniachtchi

FM Gertsog | 30 Apr 2021
Dear Chess Friends! Do you know the procedure how players become world champions? The Challenger has to play a match with the current World Champion (currently Magnus Carlsen). But how to define the challenger? For these purposes FIDE conducts the Candidates Tournament, an eight-player double-round robin tournament. FIDE chooses 8 well-performing GMs (according to their algorithm) from the last year and invites them, of course, excluding Magnus Carlsen. This year Candidates Tournament was p...

FM Gertsog | 23 Apr 2021
Dear Chess Friends! I’m a classical chess player. I prefer controlling the center, developing pieces and improving coordination between them rather than ceding the center. And this is what I also teach my students. That’s why, it’s very often when they develop their pieces faster and to the better positions than their opponents. However, sometimes they just don’t know how to continue and how to take the advantage of their lead in development. As a result, the other side tries to equalize or ...

FM Gertsog | 15 Apr 2021
Dear Chess Friends! To sacrifice or not to sacrifice? The eternal question in chess, especially when you are into the attack! However, Mikhail Tal knew the answer. He sacrificed material very often and his intuition was right. Was it his intuition actually?! How to decide whether it makes sense to sacrifice a piece or to keep playing positionally? Let’s learn the answer at our next webinar, where I’m going to reveal Mikhail Tal’s secrets and teach how to recognize that the position changed ...

Webinar 77. Knight on the Rim Is Dim!?

Webinar 77. Knight on the Rim Is Dim!?

FM Gertsog | 7 Apr 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 Mac 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

Webinar 74. How to Attack and Defend on the Flank

FM Gertsog | 19 Mac 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...

Club Update

Mergan_Chetty | 18 Mac 2021
I was away from chess.com since 13 January, when I was mugged on my way home from work. I fractured my shoulder in 4 places and was in hospital for nearly a month. I have a long way to go to rehabilitate my shoulder and would prefer not to discuss this matter further in greater detail and would rather put it behind me. I am getting better slowly and hope to have close to or even full function of my shoulder in a few months from now.  In the time that I have been gone, our Warriors have won 6...
