Great video. I'm glad Eugene tells us at the end that Kamsky developed his attack with a computer. A brilliant attack but discouraging for us mortals to think someone saw it all over the board.
Outstanding video. Exciting and informative
Excellent video. Thank you.
Another true gem! Awesome analysis
Kamsky's Kb1 choice is not too surprising, as it tucks away the king before pursuing a KS initiative. I analyzed this position with an engine several weeks ago and I remember this as one of the primary suggestions after giving it some time.
Excellent analysis Grand Master Perelshteyn. As exciting as the tactical shots were, the positional play is exciting (and instructional) too!
Thank you for taking the time to share your expertise on the possible variations because it's always valuable to see the "why" instead of just the "what".
Beautiful game and lucid analysis! This is my favorite series on chess.com.
It was Good
Wow after seeing this i wonder if in the caro-kann main line black can castle KS but instead of 12... Be7, 12...Qc7 and castle QS is not totally safe too. Maybe after castle KS 16...Qd5 is ok for black. What a tuigh position to play as B. Thank u very much, i liked it a lot!
Marvelous game, well explained!

Who says you can't teach an "old dog" new tricks? Today's video by GM Perelshteyn reviews a game by two of the oldest, but still strongest "dogs" on the American Chess Circuit. GM Kamsky vs GM Seirawan starts off with a Classical Caro Kann, and surely we are about to see a slow, mild-manured, positional struggle between these two former US Champions, right? Wrong! Watch and enjoy...
Players: Kamsky, Gata
