  1. Yugoslav Attack, Dragon Sicilian (8 part series)
    New Ideas in…: Yugoslav Attack, Dragon Sicilian (8 part series). B76, B77, B78: Sicilian: dragon, Yugoslav attack, 7...O-O ; Sicilian: dragon, Yugoslav attack, Rauser variation ; Sicilian: dragon, Yugoslav attack, 10.O-O-O ; Sicilian: dragon, Yugoslav attack, 9...Bd7 ;. In the latest of his "New Ideas in...." series for ICC Chess.FM, GM Ronen Har-Zvi investigates the latest developments and trends in the ultimate test of the Sicilian Dragon, the Yugoslav Attack with 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 g6 6. Be3 Bg7 7. f3 0-0 8. Qd2 Nc6 9. Bc4. The Sicilian Dragon is back in vogue once again thanks to its recent addition to Magnus Carlsen's ever-growing arsenal. Years ago, Bobby Fischer gave his seal of approval to the Yugoslav attack, stating it was simply a case of preying open the h-file and sac, sac...mate! But this caveman approach in the Yugoslav Attack is well-worked out, as GM Ronen Har-Zvi shows that the Dragon still breathes fire for black with plenty of counter-play. Learn More
  2. Isolated Pawns (15 part series)
    Isolated Pawns (15 part series) Players: Kortchnoi, Karpov, Boleslavsky, Kotov, Neukirch, Uhlman, Karpov, Vogt, Portisch, Karpov, Botvinnik, Flohr, Rubinstein, Rotlevi, Ivanchuk, Aronian, Rubinstein, Salwe, Kasparov, Illescas, Gligoric, Keres, Portisch, Botvinnik, Szabo, Yussupow, Ljuboljevic, Lautier, Short, Romanishin, Psakhis, Sargissian, Halkias,Petrossian, Smyslov, Botvinnik, Alekhine, Sokolov, Cebalo, Botvinnik, Petrossian, Kasparov, Karpov, Stein, Peterson, Larsen, Penrose, Nilson, Stolze, Ljubojevic, Karpov, Portisch, Donner, Antonio, Georgiev, Andersson, Rosberg, Flohr, Romanovsky, Chamier, Clerc, Lafreuchoux, Maleki, Nikolic, Mamedyarov, Schulman, Sekely,Avrukh, Kovalev ECO: In chess, an isolated pawn is a pawn which has no friendly pawn on an adjacent file. An isolated queen's pawn is often called an isolani. Isolated pawns are usually a weakness because they cannot be protected by other pawns. In practice, an isolated pawn is often a concern when it's placed on a open file, thus becoming an easy target for the enemy's pieces. In this series IM John Watson looks at all kinds of isolated pawns, and teaches us how to deal with this particular structural weakness. Learn More
  3. the Marshall Attack (10 part series)
    New Ideas in…: the Marshall Attack (10 part series). C89: Ruy Lopez: Marshall counter-attack, Ruy Lopez: Marshall counter-attack, 11...c6, Ruy Lopez: Marshall, main line, 12.d2d4. One of the world’s first Grandmasters of chess, America’s Frank J. Marshall (1877-1944), left behind a lasting legacy to the chess world with his revered gambit against the Ruy Lopez – the Marshall Attack with 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 a6 4 Ba4 Nf6 5 0-0 Be7 6 Re1 b5 7 Bb3 0-0 8 c3 d5! The Marshall Attack is one of the most important openings in the history of chess and is still deployed with regularity at super Grandmaster level. In current theory the ideas and strategies of both approaches are studied in-depth, and nowadays experts have come to the conclusion that White has no clear superiority in the main theoretical lines. And in the latest of his "New Ideas in..." series, GM Ronen Har-Zvi, takes a closer look under the microscope at Marshall's revolutionary idea. Learn More
  4. French: Rubinstein variation (7 part series)
    New Ideas in…: French: Rubinstein variation (7 part series). C10: French: Rubinstein variation 3… dxe4. With over 90% of White players opting for either 3 Nc3 or Nd2 against the French Defense, many players like the idea of the option of an easy-to-play sideline rather than the theory-trodden paths of the Winawer or Tarrasch variations. A simple solution is the Rubinstein variation with 3 ...dxe4 that can be deployed against both the big main-lines of 3 Nc3 and 3 Nd2 and has easy development and no pawn structure weaknesses for Black. And from there, there's also the solid Fort Knox variation with 4 ...Bd7 or the newer (neo-Rubinstein) Katalymov's variation with 4 ..Qd5. And in his latest series of "New Ideas In....", GM Ronen Harzvi shows just how easy and how handy the Rubinstein variation can be. Learn More

  17. Repertoire for White - Trompowsky Attack (8 part series)
    Repertoire for White - Trompowsky Attack (8 part series) Players: Stefanova, Paehtz, De Waal, Maisuradze, Congiu, Chernyshov, Golichenko, Maisuradze, Congiu, Chernyshov, Golichenko, Trompowsky, Endzelins, Adams, Xie, Hodgson, Tseitlin, Sokolov, Har-Zvi, Stefanova, Royset, Murshed, Ahmed ECO: D00, D03, A45 IM John Watson, with his video course, helps us build a strong and efficient repertoire of openings, for White and for Black. In this new series John teaches us how to use the Trompovsky Attack. After 1.d4 Nf6, instead of playing the very common moves 2.c4 or 2.Nf3, White plays 2.Bg5, sidestepping the endless amount of opening theory that has been written about the Indian Defences, such as the Queen's Indian, the Nimzo-Indian, the King's Indian, as well as the Grunfeld. Study with John the interesting Tromposvky attack; make it part of your opening repertoire and use it as a weapon when you play your games! Learn More

  19. The 150 Attack  (7 part series)
    New Ideas in…: The 150 Attack (7 part series). B07: Pirc defense. In the latest of his "New Ideas In... " series, GM Ronen Har-Zvi looks at " The 150 Attack, " a sharp line for white against the Pirc that was pioneered in the 1980s by a new generation of English players, such as John Nunn, Nigel Short and Mickey Adams. The main idea is Be3, Qd2, Bh6, advance the h-pawn and then deliver mate. Naturally, this seemed too good to be true and was quickly dubbed the 150 Attack (a peculiarity of the English grading system, with 150 equating to 1800 Elo), since it seemed that only a club player would use such a blatant attacking system and expect the game to finish in checkmate.

  28. Panov Botvinnik (9 part series)
    New Ideas in…: Panov Botvinnik (9 part series). B13, B14: Caro-Kann: Panov-Botvinnik attack, Caro-Kann: Panov-Botvinnik attack, 5...e6. Panov-Botvinnik Attack against the Caro-Kann Defense - a line that can also be transposed to from many openings, including the Queen's Gambit and the Nimzo-Indian Defense. The Panov-Botvinnik Attack has a unique important place in chess lore. After Capablanca adopted the Caro-Kann, it assumed a status as the solid way for Black to escape attacking efforts of e4 players. But Vasily Panov, a Soviet master, theoretician and Chess correspondent for "Izvestia", took a different view of the situation and decided to test Black's mettle with the direct action of 1 e4 c6 2 d4 d5 3 exd5 cxd5 4 c4. Mikhail Botvinnik picked up on this and quickly formed it into a potent weapon that has since become the choice of determined king pawn players. Learn More

  30. The Caveman Caro-Kann: Advance variation (7 part series)
    Ronen's Opening Survey: The Caveman Caro-Kann: Advance variation (7 part series). B12: Caro-Kann: advance variation 4.h4 h6 5.g4. Gone are the days when the Advance variation in the Caro-Kann (1 e4 c6 2 d4 d5 3 e5) was thought to be a poor cousin to the French Advance - now it is arguably one of White’s best ways to secure the advantage against the notoriously solid defense. And thanks to the likes of Nigel Short, Mickey Adams, Alexei Shirov and Peter Svidler et al., the White lines became so much more aggressive. These highly aggressive lines (with an early h4, g4 or Ne2) took a direct, almost bludgeoning approach to the game, so much so that it got coined as “The Caveman Caro-Kann: Advance variation.” And in a new series, GM Ronen Har-Zvi trends the developments in all the sharpest lines.

    NM Dan Heisman continues his "Intro" series, analyzing what is the "Thought process" in this video. Dan explains everything that happens since when your opponent makes a moves until you make yours. The thought processes that lead you to take decisions while playing a chess game. It is extremely important to be able to guide your thought processes towards the right direction, when you are faced with crucial decisions. Chess is a thinking game, and there's nothing more important than thought process. This is why NM Dan Heisman offers a second video on this particularly important aspect of the game. In this second video, Dan talks about analytical and non-analytical positions. One of the more important skills that a chess player has to develop is the "sense of danger". Studying this video will help you understand the importance of the thinking processes in chess. Learn More
  33. English Openings (5 part series)
    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: English Openings (5 part series) ECO: A22, A39, A25: English: Bellon gambit, English: symmetrical, main line with d4, English: Sicilian reversed With the London Chess Classic in full-swing, it is fitting we pay homage to the English Opening, made famous by Howard Staunton, who organized the great London International Tournament of 1851, the world's first international chess tournament. Many are confused what to play against 1 c4 because it has a reputation of being solid - but in a new series of GM Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide, over the next few weeks our guru takes a closer look at three enterprising gambit lines against the English, where an unsuspecting and unprepared White player can easily be intimidated and terrorized: 1) the Bellon Gambit with 1 c4 e5 2 Nc3 Nf6 3 Nf3 e4 4 Ng5 b5!? 2) English Symmetrical with…. 3) the reversed Grand Prix Attack with 1 c4 e5 2 Nc3 Nc6 3 g3 f5 4 Bg2 Nf6 5 d3 Bc5 6 e3 f4!? made famous by Bobby Fischer after his famous 1969 New York Metropolitan League demolition job of Anthony Saidy.

Ronen's show "Opening Survey" follows carefully the most recent trends in the chess world. Lately the King's Indian has been suffering big time, with GM Bacrot scoring 0 out 3 in the first rounds of the Biel Chess Festival, losing all his King's Indian games; it's time for our opening expert GM Ronen Har-Zvi to suggest ideas and opinions on this important piece of chess opening theory. In this new series Ronen will address the classical King's Indian with a more dynamic approach, opening the center and playing fast: Kramnik scored a fantastic win in Dortmund against Jan Gustafsson this year with the variation Ronen is taking in consideration in this series. Let's try and keep the King's Indian alive, with GM Ronen Har-Zvi! Learn More

  37. Anti-Dutch 2 Bg5 (5 part series)
    Ronen's Opening Survey: Anti-Dutch 2 Bg5 (5 part series). A80: Dutch, 2.Bg5 variation. Players wishing to play the Dutch Defense must certainly pay as much attention to Anti-Dutch systems as they do to the main line, as it is these very lines that can more frequently arise at club level. And one of the most popular is the tricky 1 d4 f5 2 Bg5, a line that’s certainly a blood brother of the Trompowsky Attack. Black has to be extremely careful when facing 2 Bg5, because many up against this line have fallen victim to a miniature with White winning with a crushing attack in under 25 moves. This line is also a favorite in online play, and especially here on ICC! And in a new series of Ronen’s Opening Survey, GM Ronen Har-Zvi explores the cut and thrust of the blood-thirsty Anti-Dutch with 2 Bg5. Learn More

Most of the openings courses insist on what happens right out of the opening, leaving behind the very important part about how to place your pawns during the opening. In this series IM John Watson explains different types of pawn structures, and how they influence the whole game. Learn More

  41. QGD with 5.Bf4 (7 part series)
    Ronen's Opening Survey: QGD with 5.Bf4 (7 part series). D37: QGD: classical variation (5.Bf4). The Orthodox Defense to the Queen's Gambit (1 d4 d5 2 c4 e6 3 Nc3 Nf6 4 Nf3 Be7) is an extremely resilient system for Black, and a solid favorite of not just your average club player but also many of the world's top stars. For many years, the two main lines against it used to be 5 Bg5 or 5 cxd5. But in the early 1970s, Hungary's Lajos Portisch revived an old favorite of English player Joseph Blackburne (1841-1924) of 5 Bf4 with some pioneering new ideas in it. Players such as Kasparov, Karpov, Kramnik, Fischer, Carlsen, Topalov and Ivanchuk added it to their repertoire. And in a new series of Ronen's Opening Survey for Chess.FM, our resident openings expert, GM Ronen Har-Zvi, takes a closer look at the many attractions to the Queen's Gambit Declined with 5 Bf4 and why you also should be adding it to your repertoire.

  44. GM Varuzhan Akobian: 'Tarraschin' 1 d4
    The Tarrasch Defense to the Queen's Gambit (1 d4 d5 2 c4 e6 3 Nc3 c5) is an excellent choice for Black, especially for players at club level, as it offers the kind of free piece play and contests control of central space that they find easier to comprehend rather than some of the more complex, strategy-based systems. It was a great favorite of World Champions Boris Spassky and Garry Kasparov, not to mention its originator, Dr. Siegbert Tarrasch. The modern- day Tarrasch maven though is the young American GM Varuzhan Akobian, who, in a new 3-part series, outlines a reliable Tarrasch repertoire - and with the added bonus of all being taken from his own practical experience of using it at the highest level.
