Google’s AlphaZero AI convincingly defeated Stockfish, the strongest chess engine we knew. The 10 games published made quite an impression on the chess world, and six of those happened to feature AlphaZero on the white side of the popular Queen’s Indian arising after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 b6 with the main move 4.g3.
In this series, Grandmaster Jan Gustafsson tries to kill two birds with one stone:
1. Cover six of the most spectacular and highest-level chess games we’ve ever seen.
2. Give the viewer a complete white repertoire against the Queen’s Indian.
As a bonus, the final video features a discussion with Super-GM Peter Svidler on all things AlphaZero.
