Jan Werle: Slav (Part I)

1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 Bg4 5.Qb3 Qb6 6.Ne5

Daniel King: Catalan

1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 d5 4.g3 dxc4 5.Bg2 a6 6.0-0 Nc6

Mihail Marin: Ruy Lopez Neo-Arkhangelsk

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 b5 6.Bb3 Bc5 7.a4 Rb8 8.c3 d6 9.d4 Bb6

Opening traps

The most direct way to win a game is to lure the opponent into a prepared trap. Trap expert Rainer Knaak presents eight traps from current tournament practice, three of them in video format.

Move by Move

Simon Williams: “With all the drama of the suspended Candidates, I thought it would be appropriate to pick a game from one of the leaders. I have chosen MVL, who has proven that he should be in the competition fighting for an opportunity to play a World Championship match against Magnus. This is not a modern game for a change, so I am hoping that you won't know the moves! It demonstrates one of MVL's main strengths, the ability to use his pieces to maximum effect. Can you find the moves that MVL plays? The moves that create a beautiful win?”

Strategy: Attacking with major pieces and opposite-coloured bishops

Bishops of opposite colours in combination with major pieces are an important strategic topic. Marin begins with the basics, which should be familiar to most club players, but quickly moves on to complex examples by masters. Including video introduction and lots of training tasks to solve!

Tactics: Slumbering attackers

In the end, tactics almost always determine the outcome of the game. Sharpen your killer instinct with the help of Oliver Reeh's tactical contribution: 29 selected games, peppered with numerous training questions. Incl. three videos in interactive training format!

The Classic

Master players often only need a single strategic mistake by their opponent to consistently lead a game to victory. Dorian Rogozenco shows you a brilliant example of this with the game Zuckertort-Blackburne (London 1883). "This is why these classic games are so instructive: they show the plans very clearly!"

Endgame: Recent rook and double rook endings

Karsten Müller deals with two important endgame topics in this issue: firstly, defense in single rook endgames is on the training schedule and secondly important rules of thumb in double rook endgames. In addition, the endgame expert from Hammburg provides three video analyses of recent master games.
