positional ideas:
past & present

With GM Sabino Brunello

Course Description

I was always fascinated by classical games and the timeless positional rules we can learn from them. As my goal is to share a collection of useful positional ideas, we are not limited by a time frame and we will also discuss some modern games. Expect often simple material, but not necessarily basic.
