Almost an hour of video training. Plus 23 extensively analyzed games by authors such as David Navara, Adhiban, Romain Edouard, Igor Stohl and many more. ChessBase Magazine Extra is the perfect addition to ChessBase Magazine.
Mihail Marin sets the theoretical focus of this Extra: In his video analysis of the game Vidit-Ragger from the Prague Masters 2020, he provides an update to his FritzTrainer DVD "Winning against Grünfeld". In the line 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5 4.cxd5 Nxd5 5.e4 Nxc3 6.bxc3 Bg7 7.Be3 c5 8.Nf3 Qa5 9.Qd2 Nc6 Marin recommends the move 10.Rb1. The idea of this is a provocation: Black should be tempted to play 10… a6, which weakens the field b6 and gives White tactical options for his bishop. White then continues with 11.Rc1 and after 11…cxd4 12.cxd4 Qxd2 13.Kd2 the starting position of the analysis is reached. Ragger continued with 13… e6 in Prague - a move that has become the main line in recent years.
In a second video Adrian Milhalchishin introduces you to one of his own games against top Ukrainian player Andrei Volokitin. In the line 1.c4 c5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nc6 5.Nc3 e6 6.a3 Bc5 7.Nb3 Volokitin tried to get his experienced opponent out of the comfort zone with 7… Bb6. But the world-class coach chose a solid structure with 8.e4 and 9.Be2 and did not let the research 9… d5 upset him.
David Navara and Adhiban are the two most prominent authors of this issue. Navara takes a close look at his game against Niclas Huschenbeth from the Czech League and admits that his opponent had a better opening knowledge. And Adhiban comments on four highly entertaining games from his most recent tournament practice (see above!). Other authors of this issue: Igor Stohl, Michal Krasenkow, Vaibhav Suri, Claus-Dieter Meyer and more.
Georgios Souleidis shows you an impressive attacking game by Alexei Shirov against Ju Wenjun. The former world-class player used a small inaccuracy of his opponent in the opening to create a promising attacking position.
