3 Best Games of The Week - 32 E-mail

wei-yiThis is an incredible game by the young Chinese star.

Although the sacrifices are all typical in the sharp Najdorf with 6.Bg5, it is still nice to see them played in an over the board game.

Black simply chose the wrong variation to play against Wei Yi and lost in the most painful way.

Games 1:

It was a nice surprise to find out that the American GM John Fedorowicz had a game in the same way played in 1981!

Games 2:

Another tournament win for the great legend Kiril Georgiev. We wanted to select one of his games from the tournament and we chose the last round game which he won against the GM Dmitry Svetushkin from Moldova. The game has many ups and downs, but it is a clear example of the fighting chess one must try to play in order to win games, especially with black.

Game 3:

The star game of our selection. A very sharp battle in the one of the most popular lines with 4.e3 in the Slav Defense. Despite the fact that the queens were traded off very early, the game took a sharp character in which Inarkiev managed to win, even though Shirov had amazing resources to defend, as the analysis shows.

If you want to improve your chess level, you need to have a clear study plan. If you aim for a dramatic improvement at chess you need to work on all of the elements of the game in a systematic way:

  • tactics
  • positional play
  • attacking skills
  • endgame technique
  • classical games analysis
  • psychological preparation
  • and much more

That seems to be like a lot of things, and that is. But no worries, we have made it easy for you. Our comprehensive training course covers it all and much more. Sign up for 21 Day Training right now!
