I´m really impressed with your treatment of that variation. Really Instructive! Thanks for sharing.
No counterplay is a strategy I frequently TRY and employ in my own OTB games! It's great how black had literally no moves although almost all the material was still on the board I think it's a class way to crush your opponent
very good stragety
Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
What a beautiful game. You can see the dance of logic between moves.
thank you very much sir for the video! i think that this series is one of the most instructive on chess.com becuase you explain so well how to strike and when to strike but also to play profilacticaly ! thanks
Thank you GM Leonid Kritz.
wow please make more vids this is an inside look at a gms thought processes that is fascinating and enlightening yes please upgrade sound quality thanx gm kritz
good ideas but sound quality was poor, nonetheless i did learn from this vid
Downright fascinating, requiring a player to fully understand his opponent's plans, not just his own, in order to employ the strategy successfully. Thank You for the video!
so after this tow move i think that in the move 9 Be3 i think that i do best choice because it's a game of one hours and other is of 2 minute Be3 is more logic let's see why
ok here balc can do a counter play like some game like ,amator game
me vs icc
after this game of 1 hour i try other of 2minute
first game of one hour i stop the game in the half second game in of 2 minut i stop in one because i now that is a coounter pplay of blac
i now that is no couter play this is the problem of this position that many expéirenced player like karpov kbnow really what they do 1e4 c5 2 Nf3 e6 3 d4 c*d4 4 N*d4 Nc6 5 Nb5 d6 6in the ten move is 10 00 b6 and here many game and not easy because memory here not all the idea to memorise 10 move and afetre think about the khnit in c5 can do some porble the puish of f3 all this is played and not easy for amator
instructive, but bad audio quality makes it hard to follow what u say exactly from time to time....
by GM Leonid Kritz
Karpov doesn't play often anymore, but he lives on through GM Leonid Kritz. Here, our video author stifles every pawn push, thwarts every attack, and makes life generally miserable for his opponent. Instead of improving his own position, Kritz's plays only to stop all counterplay. Eventually his opponent cracks with the seemingly innocuous ...h6. Amazingly, this is all Kritz needs to break through!
