How to Defeat an International Master

Cross-Group LessonsIn today's blog post, I am going to present you with one magnificent game played by a student of mine. In this game my student played against an International Master. In fact, these two players have played a match some time ago, but now, my student really managed to outplay his much stronger opponent following a set of easy to follow principles and techniques that can allow lower rated players to stand an equal chance against titled opponents.

I hope you enjoy this video and spend some time on taking notes on the various tips and advice my student is sharing with you through his game. I am now going to analyze his game and demonstrate how the invincible International Masters do play mediocre chess when faced with the smooth play and ideas of a well prepared lower rated opponent.
