Svitlana's Smart Moves - Hope for all Nepo fans

by Arne Kaehler
12/9/2021 – In today's episode, Svitlana wants to give some hope to all the Nepo fans out there. The Canadian WIM shows us some beautiful games of former World Chess Champions, who managed remarkable comebacks in World Championship matches. We are talking about players like Wilhelm Steinitz, Alexander Alekhine, and Bobby Fischer. All three of them were trailing in World Championship matches and all three of them could turn the tables around. Nepo, it ain't over, until it's over.

Svitlana's Smart Moves - Episode 22

With Svitlana Demchenko and Arne Kaehler

Svitlana Demchenko is an 18-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.

 

If you like Svitlana's Smart moves, you will certainly enjoy her video lectures about "Surprising your opponents with the Lazy Sicilian" and her first Fritztrainer "Understanding Material Imbalances".

Nepo is a far cry from Steinitz, Alekhine, and Bobby.
And for that matter, Magnus is superior to Zukertort, Euwe, and Spassky.
