Svitlana's Smart Moves - "Material Imbalances": S. Shankland vs F. Caruana, St. Louis 2021

by Arne Kaehler
10/21/2021 – Recently, Svitlana came to Hamburg to record her new Fritztrainer: "Understanding Material Imbalances". The DVD will appear soon, probably in a couple of weeks. But this is a good opportunity for a preview, including some recent examples of the themes Svitlana presents, e.g. the entertaining topic of "Material Imbalances".

Svitlana Demchenko is an 18-year-old, Canadian WIM, and chess coach.
