Class 5 on Thursday will deal with the bishop pair and we will try to get an understanding of why it is strong. I had a brief chapter in The Secret Life of bad Bishops, but will elaborate on this important theme in this class.
with Danish International Master Andreas Skytte Hagen prior to the publication
of Opening Simulator – King’s Indian
Defence, Quality Chess 2019 (Esben Lund & Andreas Skytte Hagen). The
book is set to be published at the end of July 2019, the interview was
conducted shortly before the book release.
Co-writer and interviewer: Silas Esben Lund.
At the end of the interview I have added a KID game that Andreas played after the draft of the book was handed in to Quality Chess, with his own annotations.
On October 5th 2018, I will start a Weekly Chess Letter. It will consist of 3 elements, where the first is a game fragment based on one of my three principal works from Quality Chess (Rook vs. Two Minor Pieces, The Secret Life of Bad Bishops and Sharp Endgames). All material is new, but built on the concepts from my books.
