Rainer Knaak presents eight traps from recent tournament practice (including three Fritztrainer videos). This time our expert has found material, e.g., in the Sicilian Defence, the Queen’s Gambit, the English Opening and in the Nimzo and Queen’s Indian Defences.

"Move by Move"

This time Simon William deals with the game Saric-Suleymanli from the European Club Cup 2019, at first in comfortable strategic mode. But then in the middlegame you have to expertly invest some material and then conduct the endgame to a win with an extraordinary distribution of material!

Strategy: The king in the centre - safe and useful

Starting from Steinitz‘ theory that the king can be useful in the centre and that it can look after itself, our strategy expert Mihail Marin examines many entertaining games – from the first all the way to the reigning world champion!

Oliver Reeh’s tactical collection contains 26 recent games, each of which contains at least one task. In addition, the IM from Hamburg presents three of his favourite combinations in our interactive video format.
