Use Your Initiative! Training Seminar, June 8-9

Boris Spassky, 10th World Champion, had a highly developed feel for the initiative and produced many sharp attacking masterpieces. Current and 16th World Champion Magnus Carlsen is more known for squeezing the maximum from apparently lifeless positions but has recently taken his game to a new level with a series of astonishing attacking games. Is the influence of Alpha Zero making an impact to elite level chess?

This training event will cover typical attacking themes that should be known and how the initiative needs to be developed or lost. It is intended to provide an arsenal of attacking plans that can be incorporated into your own games.

Designed to support a wide range of abilities from club players up to titled level. Important examples to remember will be shown by the trainer followed by participants putting what they have learnt into practice e.g. by solving exercises and playing positions.

Former Scottish Champion Jonathan Grant, FIDE Trainer, will run the session in conjunction with Edinburgh Chess Club.
