In this edition Roman teaches the art of defence, using four highly instructional games. Roman will demonstrate the importance of knowing how to defend by anticipating the opponent's attacking possibilities, and your own counter chances.
Game 1 featuring Averbakh vs. Spassky is one of the most amazing defensive games ever played. Spassky gives up a Knight for a pawn to create long term defensive counterplay.
Game 2 (Vaganian vs. Gulko) is an excellent example of passive defence followed by active counterplay - a great defensive model.
Game 3 is Petrosian vs. Spassky, one of the most instructive games of active defence ever played. Follow the twists and turns with Roman!
Game 4, which won Roman a brilliancy prize, is a great game with lots of tactics and missed defensive opportunities. Don't miss Roman's defensive insight.
