Topical opening traps

Trap expert Rainer Knaak presents eight examples with "high failure potential" from current tournament practice - three of them in video format

"Move by Move"

With chess now being transferred to the world of the internet, one would think we might be missing out on some brilliancies. Well, that is not true! The game shown here, Yu Yangyi vs Wesley So (Nations Cup 2020) has everything, a new idea in the opening, patient positional play, and a sparkling tactic finish. Can you find all the right ideas?

Strategy: "Two bishops versus rook and knight"

When is the bishop pair better and stronger than the combination of rook and knight? Strategy expert Mihail Marin gives hints as to what demands particular care in this distribution of material. With video introduction and many training tasks!

 

Tactics: "Advanced attacking pawns"

Sharpen your killer instinct with the help of Oliver Reeh's tactical column: 26 games with many training questions are waiting for you. Oliver Reeh also invites you to solve his three favorite combinations with him in interactive video format.

The Classic

There are many instructive moments in the classic game Botvinnik-Vidmar from 1936. Sometimes it's just nuances that the German national coach Dorian Rogozenco points out. In the decisive attack however, Botvinnik used a standard plan that every ambitious chess player should know!

Endgame: "Topical pawn endings" and "Endgame highlights of the top tournaments"

Karsten Müller provides plenty of material on the fundamental topic of pawn endgames and demonstrates techniques such as the breakthrough in undermining, Bähr's rule and much more. In addition, the endgame expert from Hamburg came across many exciting endgames at the top tournaments of this edition. So he decided to compile his analyses and findings for you in a separate article!
