Games from the PRO Chess League

I promised that I would post some of the games I played in the PRO chess league on So now that the problems with the chessboard’s appearance have been solved, I present you with some of my efforts.

The league was a good training ground for some of the old analysis and preparation I never had a chance to use. For example, take a look at my game against GM Ghosh where I managed to use a well-forgotten idea from the 1960s in the Breyer variation of the Spanish.



Here’s an example how things can quickly go wrong in an endgame in rapid games. In the position below I offered a draw, but he immediately played a move.



And here’s a game where again I used a line that I prepared long ago. It turned out surprisingly well!



In case you’re in need of another idea against the Caro-Kann, here’s one that I used in the beginning of the 00s, admittedly with mixed success. But in the rapid it gave me a great position straight away!



In my next post I’ll take a look at some of my black games where I successfully used “The Double Fianchetto Solution.” Stay tuned!
