    I like to study Capablanca’s games. He’s my favorite champion. Should study someone else, since he is not named above?

    • Capablanca is a great player to learn from. His positional understanding was supreme. But why to limit yourself with 1 player only? For instance, Paul Morphy (another chess titan of the past) was great in open positions, gambits – and you can learn these skills from his games.

      As for Fischer (covered in the above video lesson), same with Capablaca, he was called ‘chess machine’. These both champs had crystal clear style of playing, which is relatively easy to follow in your own games.

    dear sir the news is jsut fantastic really great article thanks a lot what is the new course all about previously i was of magnus carlsen and his journey who is making that new course are you ??today komodo and stockfihs had changed a lot of chess .modern chess is becoming a really different chess.that is why no top player plays like keres.

    • The new course is made by me exclusively. As for the other details – stay tuned, we’ll publish everything soon.

      Computers changed a lot indeed. However, it mostly relates to opening stage, and for players of GM level. For you it’s very much advisable to learn from famous players of the past.

      P.S. Carlsen said he likes to study chess classics. Van Wely studies chess with computer only and thinks that classics is useless. Which player would you prefer to imitate? 🙂

          It appears that Carlsen is “no one.” I’ll be damned!
