Detailed descriptions of my new online classes are out – download the PDF brochures below.
The new 4-week cycle of Complex Middlegames deals with Nimzowitsch and how he played his opening in My System, the Ragozin and how to compensate for the absence of the dark-squared bishop, AlphaZero and its winning strategies against Stockfish in their 2018 match, and also long-term queen sacrifices.
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.
I have started new online classes, you can find more information on these blog pages and in the PDF brochures:
