Let our expert Rainer Knaak show you eight carefully chosen traps from recent tournament practice. Three of them are also presented in video (Closed Sicilian, Nimzowitsch Defence, Queen’s Indian)

New ideas for your repertoire

Eleven opening articles await you, e.g. “Benoni forever!”, “Caro-Kann for connoisseurs” (Caro-Kann Two Knights), “Recipes against the Alapin”, “The Chinese Dragon” (Sicilian Dragon with 10…Rb8), “An exciting sideline” (Nimzo-Inidan with 4.Qc2 and 5…Na6!?), “A very special Grünfeld” and more!

Endgame - "The duel between knight and bishop"

Karsten Müller presents the whole range of one of the classic duels from “storming fortresses” all the way to “Powerplay” by the knight. Plus video training with a total running time of over an hour!

"The Classic"

“Perhaps the best game in Rubinstein’s whole career” – Dorian Rogozenco, the trainer of the German national team, highlights in this presentation of an “absolutely perfectly played game” three key moments that will help you improve your understanding of chess. Let the Grandmaster from Romania show you the decisive tricks all the way through to Rubinstein’s impressive mating attack in the endgame!

"Move by Move"

Simon Williams has chosen one of the many attractive games from the FIDE World Cup in Khanty-Mansyisk: Nihal Sarin–Eltaj Safarli. Why specifically this game? Because White’s play looks so extremely simple and because there is so much to learn for your own play from his artistry. Together with the GM from England find the moves of the extremely talented Indian player. Move by move!

Strategy - "Attacking ideas in the Italian Game"

The Italian Game has recently become popular again, not least because a series of strong grandmasters have discovered the attacking potential of this opening in recent decades. Strategy expert Mihail Marin presents the three most important scenarios.

Tactics - "The Variation Domino Effect"

Oliver Reeh’s tactical selection consists of 27 recent games, each provided with at least one training question. He also presents his three favourite combinations in our interactive training format with video feedback!
