Fianchettoed Bishops

In the previous issue, we analyzed the fianchettoed Bishops on the Queenside. If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend that you check it out. Here’s the link: LINK

If you have seen it, then here are a couple of training tasks related to the previous lesson:

Task #1:

Task #2:

Task #3:

It’s WHITE to move in all positions. What’s your task? It’s to find the BEST move and calculate ALL of the related variations. This will put your knowledge of the previous lesson into practice, and will train your calculation skills as well.

After performing the task, download the solutions to check your analysis: LINK

Aside from the solutions, you’ll also find other interesting supporting games. Play through them and pay close attention to the fianchettoed Bishops and the different ways to attack them.

    Your approach to teaching chess is refreshingly different. I seem to love chess more than ever after coming across your videos. Thanks again. 🙂

    No solutions can be found. Only a list of nine games, and the pieces wont move.

    Quite the contrary, I’ve been working hard on a new course for you. The course is still in the ‘works’, and just like my previous courses, it’ll take some time. Quality comes first!
