My favorite Opening Traps
If you want some inspiration for your next online or offline blitz games this video course is for you. Simon Williams shows his favorite opening traps in 60 minutes.
Wild and Wicked – The Mason-Keres Gambit in 60 Minutes
Korchnoi and Zak described 3 Nc3 as ‘A risky move leading to great complications in which a single inaccurate move by either side can have fatal consequences.’ If that’s the kind of chess you like playing, you are in the right place.
The Steinitz Variation in the French with Be7
The Steinitz Variation in the French Defence is characterised by the move 4.e5. White closes the center and Black tries to build up pressure by playing c5. Pähtz favorite variation is playing 7...Be7 which is the topic of this 60 Minutes course.
A modern approach against the 2...e6-Sicilian
Don't you have time to follow the latest and aggressive developments inthe main lines of the Sicilian? But do you want to obtain a comfortable position with White? In that case you should aim for the solid but venomous lines of 3.b3 against 2...e6.
The Norwegian Defence
A surprise weapon against the Spanish is the Norwegian Defence arising after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 b5 5.Bb3 Na5. Black delays his development but often gets very dynamic counterplay.
The Sizzling Scotch Gambit
The Scotch Gambit is a brazen yet utterly sound system for White who immediately opens up the position, by sacrificing a central pawn, in an attempt to assassinate the enemy king as quickly as possible.
A sharp Slav Vol.2
1 d4 d5 2 c4 c6 3 Nf3 dxc4. Without a White Knight on c3 the positon becomes radically different to the earlier line, but the idea of disruption is still the key to understanding Black's play.
A sharp Slav Vol.1
1 d4 d5 2 c4 c6 3 Nc3 dxc4! In this precise position 3...dxc4 is disruptive. Black plans ...b7-b5 and often...b5-b4 hitting the Knight on c3.
New Developments in the Arkhangelsk Variation
Mikhalchishin's new work sheds light on fresh ideas in the hyper-sharp c3 variation, the classical line, which is specially well played by Caruana, as well as further entertaining developments in the Semi-Arkhangelsk with a temporarily delayed b7-b5.
The Beliavsky Plan against the Stonewall Dutch
You exchange the bishop on f4 to open the g-file (gxf4) and double rooks there. Black will protect his weakness on this file with all his forces. You transfer your pieces to the other side, create a new weakness there, and the opponent will be helpless
