  1. At 3.40 this could be a likely line. After queens are exchanged I would suggest Bxc3 and after the recapture with the pawn Ka4, same if white dares to recapture with king. King is exposed and the pawn on c5 will lilely fall after Ka6. And eventually there could be a control of the d file after a check performed by the black rook standing on f8. Check this line with the engine

  2. In the sideline where White exchanges queens instead of playing Qe2, you try to assess why Black is doing okay.  You mention everything except Black's 3 connected, passed pawns on the kingside.  Also, you keep saying that white is a piece up in these positions but material is even, as black has 3 pawns for the piece, 7 pawns to White's 4 by my count.  So not really that mysterious that Black is  doing just fine here.

    Also, you want to suggest that the Gruenfeld could be in trouble theoretically, but you point out that the computer identified Na5, not blocking the g7 bishop, as apparently better than Ne5 after White's d5, since it takes the venom out of Qf2.

    I like White's f3 line because it does throw a bit of a monkey wrench into Black's well trodden strategy, but it is rather slow, and so it is not surprising that Black might find some piece activity.  If White can contain Black and get developed, then no one would want to be Black in these positions, but apparently that is not so easy.  Honestly, wouldn't you be a bit surprised if the Gruenfeld got sidelined by  3.f3?

  3. Caruana is up to 2844 on the Fide ratings list now! I'm not sure, but I strongly suspect this makes him the third highest-rated player in history.

    A couple of other noteworthy mentions — good to see Britain's Michael Adams back up among the elite at 2758, and Topalov back to 2800!

  4. Actually I thiink that this game is a good example of 2 players playing pretty good, but one simply better in nuances. Peter put up a good fight in a difficult position and won't play this system again ^^ Btw KC you said there'd be a Svidler sacrifice vid. Hope this is coming soon. I'm a great fan of Peter so I'd like to see that one. I actually got back into chess when because of his commentary in the Anand/Gelfand Match 🙂

  5. Another nice win by Fabiano, even though Svidler seems to have stumbled around 21:00.  I'm a bit at a loss in understanding Caruana's style.  He seems to patiently set up solid positions that always have some subtle tactical potentials in them, and his opponents recently just stumble into the danger.  Thanks for the video!

  6. Even Super GM's struggle to correctly maneuver pieces. Svidler was fine but he didn't make the most of his pawns. He missed sum good trade downs to increase their value. Positional chess is hard but sacking a piece for pawns makes accuracy critical. Very instructive w/ good variation analysis virtual professor. Thanks for posting. Yes Love

  7. I found this video very informative – thanks.

    Can you do one on how to win against the Nimzo Indian Defense? I find a lot of players are doing well with this as black
