Gm Mesgen Amanov – Chess Lessons – Volume 2

Welcome everybody to my Killer Bogo Indian – French Style opening course! The name of this exclusive opening is based on a sharp and dynamic set-up and of course the option of a transposition into the French opening when white plays 2.e4.

About the Author:

From her early childhood, the chess world predicted Elisabeth Paehtz would one day become one of Germany’s strongest chess players. She absorbed chess concepts fast and, gifted with an intuitive sense of the chessboard, she somehow knew where the pieces belonged, winning game after game in big tournaments.

So when she scored a stunning victory in the World Youth Championships in 2002, many people were not surprised.

Ten Chess Olympiad appearances later…she is a force to be reckoned with.

What you will learn

The course is divided into 3 chapters:

1: 3.Nd2

2. 3.Nc3

3. 3.Bd2

All those chapters lead to different structures, ideas, and options. IM Paehtz tried to choose the sharpest variations as she is a dynamic player, however, she also mentions alternatives in the game notations.

Is the course for me?

Why does the Killer Bogo Indian offer you an excellent repertoire? First of all the “learning theory effort is rather limited” if you are a French opening player.  Secondly, the move order 1…e6 and Bb4 does avoid the Nimzo Indian Defence (see chapter 2), as you do not put your knight on f6 at the early stage. The early b6-Bb7 and f5 set-up gives you a quick control on the important central square on e4.

Last but not least is the build-up of pressure. In most variations you create an early attack in the center, forcing your opponent to play precisely.

“I played many games in the Bogo Indian Variation myself with great success, especially for rapid and blitz games, this is a super good opening as moves are logical and come easy by hand.” – IM Elizabeth Paethz
