Wherever he appears, chess fans gather in crowds. Garri Kasparow is the strongest chess player of our time – and a great personality who can represent the sport like no other chess professional.
Now Kasparow comes into your home and shares with you his knowledge of one of the great openings in chess. Garri Kasparow took to the Queen’s Gambit at a relatively late stage of his chess career, but then had the best training anyone could imagine: in his first match for the world championship against Anatoli Karpow, this opening appeared on the board no less than 19 times. Now he shares his knowledge with you.
With great eloquence Kasparov speaks about variations and ideas of the Classical Queen’s Gambit, the basics of which were laid by the champions of their times – Steinitz, Lasker, Rubinstein, Capablanca and Alekhine.
Garri Kasparow does not just work through the variations one by one – fl uent transitions make the chess students understand the ideas and see new connections.
Even people who don’t actually play this opening will benefit enormously from Kasparov’s explanations, learning from this genius’s vast knowledge of the game and his views on chess history.
More than three hours of first-class private tuition.
