    If you want to see a superb demonstration of knight usage, look not further than GM Alejandro Ramirez's game from this year's U.S. Championship. First he offers an exchange, then he builds up a rock-solid pawn structure and makes Black's king walk the plank. The extra pawns prove useful, and with a losing endgame only getting worse, GM Mackenzie Molner commits Hari-kiri by mating himself. | Bekijk video

      GM Dzindzi wants to be a trend setter. For years he has played and studied 3...d6 in the Spanish Game and he can't figure out any clear route to an advantage for White. Today you'll see more of why he thinks top players will eventually switch from the Berlin to the Steinitz. He covers all the missing gaps from part one, including early c3 and c4 systems, as well as similarities to pawn structures from other openings like the Yugoslav attack in the Dragon. Be a trend setter and play the Steinitz! | Bekijk video

There's a right way and a wrong way to be up a pawn, and patience is truly a virtue in this one. Keeping Black in a vice proves to be more powerful than cutting off one of his fingers!

      Wow! Roman is not short on superlatives for this one! First he shows you several positions where the discussion is whether a bishop is good or bad, then you get to see both sides' misunderstanding of this concept. But our author saves his highest opprobrium for a simple pawn move. "This is the worst move I've seen in months." One side clearly wasn't thinking about squares gained and taken away - it turns out to be the pivotal mistake. Enjoy the lesson! | Bekijk video
