Chess Fans have said: Very clear, very lucid. This lecture made me realize that I was confusing “two weaknesses” with “two targets” and I now have a much clearer grasp of the nuances of what constitutes a “weakness”.
GM Eugene Perelshteyn was born in Ukraine and learned chess from his father, a FIDE Master. He moved to the United States at the age of fourteen and won the U.S. U18 Championship in 2000. Eugene earned a chess scholarship from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, where he graduated in computer science. In 2002 he was awarded the Samford Chess Fellowship – given to the top American Player under 25 years old – which helped him earn the GM title in 2006.
Eugene currently lives in Massachusetts and competes mainly in New England. He is a regular contributor to ChessLecture.com, and is the co-author of two books: Chess Openings for White, Explained and Chess Openings for Black, Explained, both in their second editions.
