As noticed previously on the RCA social media pages, a NEW GUEST LESSON is now ready for dvdbox1-176x300you!

This article was written by a young IM (18 y.o.) from Cannes (France) named Gary GIROYAN. He was French youth champion many times, European Union champion and always in the top places at the European and World Championships.

His article is about the Najdorf with 6.Bc4.  That’s a very interesting variation for White which forces Black to be very precise during the opening.  In this lesson, Gary will tell you his secrets in this variation which he really enjoys.

Petrosian and karpov

The easiest way to win a game is to attack opponent’s WEAKNESSES. In general, this is pretty obvious. Karpov, Petrosian and other great players won countless games by using this concept.

However, when it comes to YOUR OWN GAMES, the situation turns out to be trickier; for instance:

  • Your opponent is not going to weaken his/her position.
  • An opponent will strive for a counter-attack.

So, how can YOU exploit opponent’s weaknesses, and bring home a well-deserved win? Today, we’ll go through a game of a student who did it just right! Remember these ideas, and use them in your games!
