In this video course, GM Bryan Smith will deep dive into one very important positional concept: Strength of the Knight in the Middlegame.
Many players have trouble using their knights to one hundred percent.
Sure, we all know trivial things like “knights like closed positions”, “knights are strong on the outposts” and maybe even that “knight is worth 3 to 3.5 points.”
But when the game is in progress, oftentimes we ask ourselves… Now what? What do I do with the knights?
I’ve seen again and again that players under 2000 struggle with the knights.
Some players don’t know how to use the knights and some players… don’t know what to do against them.
Does that ring a bell for you?
It surely does for me – because I was on the same boat…
In this course, GM Bryan Smith will teach you once-for-all, how to perfect your Knights play. You’ll get all the GM plans, ideas, maneuvers, what to do and what to avoid as well as tons of top players plays and strategies when it comes to a knight in the middlegame!
Here is what you’ll learn:
- Positional features which make the Knight a superior piece to the Bishop
- Fischer’s evergreen strategy for “improving the worst piece”
- Powerful knight maneuvers for both attack and defense
- Kasparov’s “Double-Knights”
