Svitlana's Smart Moves - The power of swindling in chess

by Arne Kaehler
9/29/2021 – This episode is about the very interesting subject of how to "swindle" your way out of lost positions. Probably, you have managed to turn a game around once, or twice already? And likely, an opponent has done the same? Even a top player is not safe, as Svitlana can demonstrate in one of her played games against a Grandmaster.

Svitlana's Smart Moves - Episode 14

With Svitlana Demchenko and Arne Kaehler

Svitlana Demchenko is a 17-year-old, Canadian WIM, and chess coach. Here and now, she will teach us plenty of smart moves on the board, ranging from tactics, strategies, openings, and anything else chess related. In the process, I'm happy to be available as a student at club player level, and pester the Women's International Master with questions. Anyone who wants to strengthen their chess skills is welcome to watch, and actively replay the positions from the video, on our chessboard.
