Happy NEW Year! :) New Year is always the perfect time to get a fresh start on things – may it be in chess, business, relationship and everything else in between. And I wish your 2012 would be your best year yet!

I’m pretty sure you know the Olympians motto: “Faster, Higher, Stronger”. Aspiring to outdo yourself, aspiring to get better ALL THE TIME – this is one of the most important qualities a REAL sportsman has. That said, your efforts to get better at chess should double this 2012!

Enjoy the Holiday Season BUT don’t let it relax you too much or put you off guard. Reasonable rest is required; while too much relax weakens you!

Let me tell you a story :)

Somewhere in Africa, an antelope wakes up every morning. She knows, that she must run faster than the fastest lion (otherwise she would be eaten!).

Somewhere in Africa, a lion wakes up every morning. He knows that he must run faster than the slowest antelope (otherwise he will die of starvation).

It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or an antelope.

What matters is that you run fast when the sun rises!

    Happy new year my GM !! I like when I see your name in my e-mail. It makes me very happy to have news about chess. More I discover new things on chess and more I want to play chess. I like more this game because I understand better this game with the evolution of time.

    Happy new year! I wish u all the best! And a new course about opening repertoire would be interesting indeed. I dare to say that not just one but maybe more might be needed for a full opening repertoire! Thanks again for your precious lessons. Take care…

    Mr Smirnov I wish you a very happy new year, continue doing your wonderful courses and certainly I will continue buying and studying your material, as the lion I will continue training myself to catch the antelope that in my case are the goals that I have for this year that is coming.

    Hello Igor, how are u? In the course “How to beat titled players” in the 2nd weapon (Unexpected moves) in the 2nd examble it says that after blacks move 1…g6 white shouldn’t retreat with his Queen but counterattack with 2.Nxe6 which wins! That’s true if black takes the Queen or the Knight. But i think after 2…Qc6!, which attacks the Ne6 and also looks at the g2 square, things are not so clear. I couldn’t find anything for white so afterwards i gave the position to Rybka and it couldn’t find something concreat either. So is white actually winning after 2.Nxe6?

  • MrDeerHunter

    another loss. just great. its frustrating because i always have more material than my opponent but somehow i lose every time. i was 2 pawns up. i get two excited when realizing i can beat a much more powerful opponent and lose every time. i really need an endgame course.

  • batwawula samson

    very nice to hear fm u

  • Mariano Mancin

    HI GM IGOR

    Thank for the lessons, but i have a question for you: what do you think about the book “Chess Openings For White, Explained” by Dzindzichashvili-Alburt of Grand Prix Attack ?
