The fact that Yannick Pelletier is a fan of the Hedgehog is something we would have found out at the latest at the end of last year when his Fritztrainer DVD appeared. In this video, which was only made after the recording of the DVD, he presents his rapid chess game against Grandmaster Shchekachev (Paris 2017). Once more the Hedgehog gives proof of how flexible and – when you get down to it – how effective it is!

The move 3...Nge7 is an attractive universal weapon against the Ruy Lopez. Adrian Mikhalchishin wonders in his video why this plan disappeared from the practice of top players after a splendid but short flowering. In his video he puts under the microscope the probably most principled strategy for White – the quickest possible advance by means of c2-c3 and d2-d4. But here too the master trainer did not come across any variations which could seriously call into question Black’s setup.
In the Bundesliga season of 2014/15 top Hungarian player Richard Rapport played in his usual unconventional style against Grandmaster Alexander Donchenko a brilliant game which was well received by visitors to the Bundesliga website. Let Georgios Souleidis show you the “Game of the Season” in video format!
GM Adrian Mikhalchishin: "I like CBM in different ways - as a reader, I prefer the Endgame Corner by Karsten Mueller - really well done. As a trainer, I use CBM Tactics to warm up my pupils, sometimes Opening Surveys, which are useful for certain openings and sometimes Strategy, the subjects of which are always instructive."
GM Teimour Radjabov: "I have been using CBM for a long time and it is very useful, because you can see all the recent games, annotated by the best players in the world."
