Magnus Carlsen Beats Kasparov's Slav Defense 😱 ... Almost (Magnus Carlsen vs Garry Kasparov)

Magnus Carlsen Beats Kasparov's Slav Defense 😱 ... Almost (Magnus Carlsen vs Garry Kasparov)

Wish you could have made Garry Kasparov sweat at 13 years old like Magnus Carlsen? 🤔 Then signup today for GM Damian Lemos' FREE rapid improvement masterclass that will give you the most ELO gain in the shortest amount of time! ► https://ichs.co/2yKuXhq Carlsen vs Kasparov, who will win? Carlsen opens with 1. d4 and Kasparov responds with a weird sideline of the Slav Defense on 6. ...Qa5 - most likely trying to take Carlsen out of his comfort zone and into an opening he had not studied extensively. Carlsen responds very logically with 7. Nd2 and 8. Qc2, calmly defending the important d4 square and breaking the pin on the c3 knight. With 9. ...e5!? Kasparov aims to immediately sharpen play, however Carlsen refuses to be baited into uncharted waters and calmly plays 10. 0-0. Kasparov's 11. ...Qb6 seems to be inaccurate as just 3 moves later he plays 14. ...Qc7 - making room for his d7 knight to maneuver to b6. Extreme complications ensue and Kasparov is forced to embark on a very awkward maneuver to avoid material loss, leading to a strong initiative for Carlsen after 23. Qc5 Rd8 24. d5! - introducing extreme pressure against Kasparov's badly coordinated and developed pieces. Carlsen's position looked nearly winning after 29. Rfe1, although after Kasparov 29. ...Bb7, it became apparent that if white played 30. Nxa5, black could sacrifice his bishop with 30. ...Bxg2 - leading to a very advantageous position for black. Instead of 29. Rfe1, Carlsen could have played 29. Bc7 which would led to a winning endgame for white as he would capture the a5 pawn and have 2 extra, connected passed pawns. However, after 29. Rfe1 Bb7 - Carlsen was forced to play 30. Nd4, essentially leading to a drawn endgame which Kasparov was easily able to hold - leading to a draw being agreed after 52. Bf2 Watch Kasparov vs Carlsen go at it, after all Magnus Carlsen loses rarely. This video will teach you a great opening for white as well as the semi-slav and slav defense basics. ► Corresponding article from this video with extra goodies: https://ichs.co/2ytg7j8 ► Come checkout the iChess.net shop, we have the world’s largest collection of chess videos and chess courses: https://ichs.co/iChessShop ********** Other Videos from iChess ********** ► Subscribe to our main Youtube Channel: https://ichs.co/iChSubscribe ► Check out award winning Master Method video series: https://ichs.co/MasterMethod ► Checkout our most recent video: https://ichs.co/latest-chess-video ********** FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL: *********** Facebook:https://ichs.co/iChessFB Twitter:https://ichs.co/iChessTwitter YouTube: https://ichs.co/iChSubscribe ********** Our Other YouTube Channels *********** iChess Ch 2: https://ichs.co/iChess2 iChess en español: https://ichs.co/iChessESP

Chess Openings: Fried Liver Attack

The fried liver attack is a super aggressive opening that derives from the two knights defense in the italian game. White looks to sacrifice his knight on f7 so that he can take initiative and start a great assault against the black king. Black has to be on his toes and has to play very careful or else he will find himself checkmated very fast. http://www.thechesswebsite.com Chess Software used in the video can be found at http://www.chesscentral.com and http://www.chessok.com

Bobby Fischer's 21-move brilliancy

Bobby Fischer creates a chess masterpiece in only 21 moves against Robert Eugene Byrne, an International Master, at the 1963/1964 United States Chess Championship, held in New York. At 20 years young, Grandmaster Robert James Fischer was already among the world's very best chess players. In this brilliancy, Fischer demonstrates how to inject multiple imbalances into a highly symmetrical position, how to properly highlight these differences to benefit oneself, and how to accurately assess the true value of the pieces as they rest on the board.

Sicilian Defense - Dragon Variation

Sicilian Defense - Dragon Variation

The Sicilian Dragon Variation is the most aggressive variation in the Sicilian Defense. Black fianchettos his bishop to g7 and looks to play a hypermodern style of play and control the center of the board. Typically white will castle on the queen side and black will castle on the king side. Because of this there will be fireworks and both sides will try to mate their opponent as quickly as possible. check out more openings at http://www.thechesswebsite.com software can be found at http://www.chesscentral.com or http://www.chessok.com

Master 👉 The Typical Tactics in The Sicilian Defense 🤔 - GM Susan Polgar

♕ FULL COURSE: https://www.ichess.net/shop/polgar-chess-university-beginners-positional-play-strategy/ ♕ 10 GM SECRETS: https://www.ichess.net/10gmsecrets/ ♕MORE: https://www.ichess.net/2016/07/26/typical-chess-tactics-in-the-sicilian-defense/ In this video, GM Susan Polgar looks at a critical topic for 1.e4 and 1…c5 players: the typical tactics in the Sicilian Defense. The Sicilian Defense is one of the sharpest openings in chess, with an imbalance created straight from the beginning: White plays in the center, Black on the flank. Despite there being many variations of the Sicilian, there are also lots of similarities in each side’s formations. In this video, a preview of her Secrets of Chess Strategy (Beginner), Susan reveals some of the opening traps you need to be aware of. When either side moves their c-pawn (always Black in the Sicilian, often White too), this allows possible Qa4+/Qa5+ moves and undefended pieces are often lost to this move. Also, with only the c and d-pawns moved, Black has to be careful of Bb5+. If the Queen’s Bishop and Knight have moved, Black might have to give up his Queen. These themes and more lend themselves to more subtle combinations as revealed in this video. It’s quite easy for either side to lose a piece in the first ten moves. Knowing these patterns will help you avoid embarrassing blunders and trap a few opponents too. Susan will also show you some even more deadly attacks. Often Black’s King is somewhat smothered by the closeness of his own pieces. A well-timed sacrifice, often for a pawn on e6, can open lines for a mating attack; again, very early in the game. It pays to know about the typical tactics in the Sicilian Defense, perhaps above all other openings. Which squares become weak and why, when and where to sacrifice material and which moves to be very careful about. Watch this video and you will be well prepared to survive and profit from this opening.

Kasparov CRUSHES 😲 Anand with the Sicilian Najdorf (Anand vs Garry Kasparov)

Kasparov CRUSHES 😲 Anand with the Sicilian Najdorf (Anand vs Garry Kasparov)

Want to terrify opponents and delight spectators with super-aggressive chess like Garry Kasparov? 🤔 Then signup today for GM Damian Lemos' FREE rapid improvement masterclass that will give you the most ELO gain in the shortest amount of time! ► https://ichs.co/2zOevkV “Everyone has their nemesis. For me it was clearly Kasparov. I don’t think I want to make excuses for that” – Viswanathan Anand. Garry Kasparov and Viswanathan Anand had some insane battles back in the 1990s as Kasparov was at the height of his power and Anand was explosively shooting up the ranks to challenge for the title of world chess champion. While he did face Garry Kasparov in the World Chess Championship in 1995, Vishy Anand would have to wait until after Kasparov retired to finally claim the title in 2007, beating the man who beat Kasaparov: Vladimir Kramnik. While Garry was still around, however, Anand had a tough time in their personal battles. Considering the close relative strength of the 2 players, you’d expect honors to be close to even. But they weren’t. Decisive games: 16 Garry Kasparov vs Viswanathan Anand 4. Kasparov won 80% of their decisive classical games, a record that shows how great his psychological edge was over Anand. A marked feature of the Kasparov vs Anand matches was the clashing of two iron-willed competitors. Both Kasparov and Anand have playing styles distinguished by dynamic attacks and energetic piece play. At the time of this game in 1996, Vishy Anand was one of the few players in the world who dared open with 1.e4 against Kasparov, with most players simply too scared to play against Kasparov´s pet weapon against 1.e4 - the Sicilian Najdorf! With Vishy Anand playing White in the Kasparov vs Anand mini-match in the final of the Grand Prix, he wanted to win and opened 1.e4. We get a Sicilian Defense, Najdorf variation and Anand opts for the English Attack with 6.Be3. Interestingly, Kasparov goes for the “anti-English Attack” 6…Ng4, chases Anand’s bishop a little bit then expands on the kingside with h6, g5 then h5. Soon we have a blocked position, level material with Kasparov having the bishop pair but his light-squared bishop being horribly restricted by his pawns. However, the entire long diagonal a8-h1 is open and Anand doesn’t have a light-squared bishop to defend it. The Anand vs Kasparov battle centers around whether Kasparov can take advantage of this weak color complex now or if Vishy Anand will make him suffer in an endgame. Watch the video for some very instructive attacking ideas and an epic Kasparov vs Anand battle in the Sicilian Najdorf! ► Corresponding article from this video with extra goodies: https://ichs.co/2zOFAnQ ► Come checkout the iChess.net shop, we have the world’s largest collection of chess videos and chess courses: https://ichs.co/iChessShop ********** Other Videos from iChess ********** ► Subscribe to our main Youtube Channel: https://ichs.co/iChSubscribe ► Check out award winning Master Method video series: https://ichs.co/MasterMethod Checkout our most recent video: https://ichs.co/latest-chess-video ********** FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL: *********** Facebook: https://ichs.co/iChessFB Twitter: https://ichs.co/iChessTwitter YouTube: https://ichs.co/iChSubscribe ********** Our Other YouTube Channels *********** iChess Ch 2: https://ichs.co/iChess2 iChess en español: https://ichs.co/iChessESP

Ruy Lopez - Ideas, Principles and Common Variations ⎸Chess Openings

Ruy Lopez - Ideas, Principles and Common Variations ⎸Chess Openings

Ruy Lopez (Spanish Game) is the most valuable weapon for 1. e4 players. It follows the basic opening principles and teaches you how to control the center, develop pieces and react to your opponent’s threats properly. In this video I will be covering the main variations of the Ruy Lopez, explaining the basic principles and ideas behind each one, but each individual variation will be covered in much more detail in a separate video. Mastering the Ruy Lopez is something every string chess player has to tackle at some point and there hasn’t been a single world champion or a super grandmaster who doesn’t have it as a major weapon in their opening repertoire. The Ruy Lopez starts after the moves: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 From this position black is able to choose from two main moves, 3…a6 or 3…Nf6, each leading to completely different positions. After 3…Nf6 the positions enters the Berlin Defense: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6, and the most common continuation ends in the so called “Berlin Endgame” after the moves: 4.0-0 Nxe4 5.d4 Nd6 6.Bxc6 dxc6 7.dxe5 Nf5 8.Qxd8+ Kxd8, a position in black has forfeited castling rights and accepted doubled c pawns in exchange for the bishop pair. After 3.Bb5, the most common way for black to play is with 3…a6, immediately challenging the bishop and forcing it to either capture the c6 knight or to retreat. If white responds with 4.Bxc6, then after 4…dxc6 the position has entered the Exchange Ruy Lopez. Similarly to the Berlin, white is arguing that he has a better pawn structure and that any piece trades favor him. After 3…a3, taking the knight is not as common, though, and by far the most common reply is 4.Ba4, retreating the bishop, but keeping the pressure on the knight, and from here the Ruy Lopez branches out. The most common continuation after: 4. Ba4 is Nf6, challenging the center and attacking e4, and white continues with 5. O-O Be7 6. Re1 b5 – after Re1 this is now the Closed Ruy Lopez, the starting position of most variations played at top level, and play almost always continues with 7. Bb3 O-O 8. c3 d6 (after 8.c3, black is also able to strike in the center with d5, instead of playing the more passive and solid d6, and the variation is called the Marshall Attack) 9. h3, after which this is the starting position for 90% of high level games, and the first point at which players actually start thinking. Black is the one who gets to choose which variation to go for from here on. The most common continuations are: 9…Bb8 (The Breyer variation) 9…Na5 (The Chigorin variation) The Ruy Lopez (also called the Spanish Game or the Spanish torture) is one of the oldest chess openings. It was named after Ruy López de Segura, a Spanish priest and chess player who lived in the 16th century. The first mention of the opening was found in Libro del Ajedrez (the book of chess) from 1561, and it has been analyzed and improved upon ever since then.

Chess Traps- Lasker Trap

Chess Traps- Lasker Trap

Today we look a chess trap called the Lasker Trap which comes from the Albin Countergambit against white's Queen's Gambit. If white is not careful than he can find himself in a lot of pain very quickly and with the help of an underpromotion on the 7th move, black can have the white king running all over the board. It's a great trap for black.

Sicilian Defense, French variation - Standard chess #43

Sicilian Defense, French variation - Standard chess #43

I played a standard chess game as white with my opponent playing the Sicilian Defense, French variation. My opponent surprised me as early as move 5. Would it be wise to devote an additional tempo to open a new door for a bishop in an already opened position, and even if not, could it be exploited? Black's 5th move was not the only "surprise" I experienced. Time controls are 15 minutes with a 2 second increment. https://lichess.org/ARuAjUkW PGN: 1. e4 c5 2.
