In a sense, we can break "chess thinking" into three different types, each representing a different class where you may make errors. Let's put process in class one, knowledge in area two, and analytical in class three. The latter usually occurs at a higher level, but it's useful to know how errors during analysis can happen.

    Ronen's Opening Survey: Scotch Game (10 part series). C45: Scotch game 4. … Bc5, Scotch game 5. Nxf6. The Scotch game with 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 first came to prominence when one of the leading players of his day, Scottish barrister John Cochrane (who also came up with the Cochrane variation against the Petroff's with 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nf6 3 Nxe5 d6 4 Nxf7!?) suggested it for his London Chess Club team when they took on Edinburgh Chess Club in what went on to become a famous correspondence match in 1824. When London first played it, they got a great position - but Cochrane had to leave for India and they could't convert their advantage, and drew. Edinburgh then opted to play the new idea in the next game and won - so the opening was named in their honor. However the Scotch lay dormant for the best part of a century at elite level until Garry Kasparov sensationally brought it back into fashion when he used it to ruffle up Karpov during their 1990 world title match. Since then, the venerable Scotch has had a new lease of life. And in a new series of Ronen's Opening Survey, our resident theoretical guru, GM Ronen Har-Zvi shows us just how potent a good Scotch can be. Learn More

    Regular Price: $5.98

    Special Price $2.99

    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: Schliemann Defense Deferred (2 part series) ECO: C70: Ruy Lopez: Schliemann defense deferred The Schliemann Defense Deferred, with 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 a6 4 Ba4 f5 is, of course, very similar in nature to the more popular Schliemann Defense covered during an earlier series of Gambit Guide. It has never had a good reputation, but it remains a surprise weapon with no clear refutation. The key difference between the two is that in the deferred form Black can have a timely …b5 available. The deferred was a favorite of the original chess thinker David Bronstein, and even Viktor Korchnoi used it to draw with Anantoly Karpov during their many world championship battles; lately, Alexei Shirov has played it. And in a new series of Gambit Guide, we take a closer look at the nuances of the Schliemann Deferred. Learn More
