jan gustafssonIf you’re a 1.e4 e5 player, you’ll soon realize that the Four Knights, 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 is a popular and annoying weapon at White’s disposal.

Magnus Carlsen: World Champion – IM Anna Rudolf and IM Sopiko Guramishvili

Anna (Miss Strategy) and Sopiko (Miss Tactics) take you on an exciting journey where you get to accompany Magnus Carlsen on his way to becoming World Champion at the age of 22.

anna rudolf and Sopiko GuramishviliIt all starts with the Candidates in London in 2013, where Magnus almost missed out after a last-round thriller. The next stop is the Chennai World Championship in the same year as Magnus dethrones World Champion Vishy Anand. Anna and Sopiko show the decisive moments from that match.

Finally, Magnus defends his title in a rematch with Vishy in Sochi in 2014, with four games put under the microscope.

Jaenisch Gambit – GM Roeland Pruijssers

The Jaenisch (or Schliemann) Gambit – 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 f5 – is a relatively underestimated reply to the hugely popular Ruy Lopez.

In his first video series for chess24, Dutch Grandmaster Roeland Pruijssers, one of the world’s leading experts, shows you what the opening is all about.

He gives a full overview and sometimes gives viewers a choice of what to play, so you can choose lines that match your own style of play.

The Taimanov Sicilian – GM Robin van Kampen

robin van kampenThe Sicilian Defense is the most popular chess opening in existence and so it’s no surprise that it’s also the most theoretical. With whole books written on each of the 6 main 6th move choices for White in the Najdorf, sometimes it can be difficult to keep up.

Enter the Taimanov Sicilian, characterized by the moves 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nc6 5.Nc3 Qc7. This opening has increased in popularity over the last couple of years but is still relatively fresh compared to other variations.

Dutch GM Robin van Kampen was persuaded to switch from the Najdorf to the Taimanov and is very happy with his decision, noting that success with the Taimanov Sicilian is based more on ideas than memorizing concrete variations.

In this 4h 16m course, Robin shows exactly how to tackle all White’s systems and reveals the many opportunities Black has for getting a decisive advantage if White goes wrong.

By learning the key strategic principles given by GM van Kampen, you will be able to meet 1.e4 with a very confident …c5! and push the game into territory you know much better than your opponent does.

The former World Chess Champion explains advanced rules such as pawn promotion, en passant captures, and castling, in his thorough and patient style.

He also presents some exercises at the end of the course to test your newly-acquired knowledge, so that you will be able to start playing with confidence right away.

A personal look at Mikhail Tal’s games – GM Peter Svidler

Mikhail Tal, nicknamed the “Magician from Riga,” was a gregarious and unworldly genius who overwhelmed his opponents with dazzling attacking chess.

His creative play, stunning sacrifices and mating attacks that seemed to come out of the blue made him one of the most loved and watched players.

He certainly made a big impression on a young Peter Svidler, who studied Tal’s games and techniques as he grew up. Over the course of 2h 40m, Svidler takes you through seven of Tal’s classic games, sharing his personal insights into one of the greatest attacking players of all time.

With such rich games, this series is as instructive as it is entertaining and Svidler’s lucid explanations reveal the secrets behind Tal’s genius.

The French Tarrasch: A repertoire for White – IM Lawrence Trent

IM Lawrence Trent provides a complete repertoire for White against the French Defence with the Tarrasch variation.

lawrence trentWith 3.Nd2, as opposed to 3.Nc3, White keeps his pawn structure intact and retains the option of supporting d4 with c2-c3. This positionally sound choice allows White to develop with minimal interference from Black and prepare his attack.

In this 5h 38m course IM Lawrence Trent, a veteran French Tarrasch player, demonstrates the key ideas and opportunities for White attacks on the Kingside, Queenside and even some early sacrifices in the center.

Covering all the main lines, sidelines and offbeat moves with powerful recommendations for each, Lawrence Trent ensures you have a professional standard French Tarrasch repertoire.

Introduction to the 6.d3 Spanish – GM Peter Svidler

Peter Svidler is back! In this series, the 7-time Russian champion takes a deep look at the move 6.d3 in the Spanish (Ruy Lopez). The secrets of one of the hottest lines at the top level are now available to everybody!

White players can get a complete repertoire to play 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.d3. If you’re on the black side, you can still get a full update on the state of theory in this topical line.
