Hello everyone, especially to the members of the Hive Chess Community! It's been a busy week, but I've had time to record this new video with a new lesson of our traditional Chess Coaching series for HiveChess.
This time we're going to review a few games played last week at the Saturday thematic tournament. This time we practiced the Old Benoni, an opening we arrived at through this move order: 1. d4 c5 2. d5. So this is going to be feedback for some of the players who participated in the tournament. We are going to look at 4 games to 1) illustrate plans and ideas that contribute to a successful outcome for both sides and 2) of course give some suggestions to both sides to improve the play in the opening mainly.
I am a player in three of the games. Forgive me for picking a lot of games of mine, but as I pointed out in the video, I feel a bit responsible for the suggestions I've given to the community. I've also heard @schmanagerbert's take on trying the opening.
In the last game, by the way, I pointed to an old analysis I did on a similar opening line. Here is the link to that analysis.
I also created this public Lichess Study with the imported and annotated games. Feel free to join and even clone it for saving if you wish.
Well, I think the video is self-explanatory, so I hope you enjoy watching it. Don't forget to share the post and video and let me know what you think in the comments section.
