Svidler’s Archangels – GM Peter Svidler
The Ruy Lopez (Spanish) has been played for at least 500 years and so it’s no surprise there are many ideas in this classical opening. However, one that has risen in popularity, largely due to the great attacking chances for Black, is the Ruy Lopez Archangel variation, characterized by the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 b5 6.Bb3 Bc5).
The aggressive early bishop move leads to intense, sharp complications which can quickly overpower the unprepared player making it an excellent weapon to have in your repertoire.

Berlin Wall – GMs Jan Gustafsson and Paco Vallejo
The Berlin Wall (or Berlin Defense) went from relative obscurity to being the most discussed opening in chess when Vladimir Kramnik used it to successfully frustrate Garry Kasparov in 2000, ultimately winning the World Chess Championship.
Since then Magnus Carlsen has employed it in many top games, notably his matches against Vishy Anand in 2013 and 2014.
If you play 1.e4 or meet that move with 1…e5 then this is an opening you need to be familiar with.
GMs Paco Vallejo and Jan Gustafsson join forces to reveal the main ideas for both sides in this 1h 20m course. The early exchange of Queens does not mean the game will be simple and understanding all the opportunities and difficulties, plus their solutions are essential for good results.
This course provides you with everything you need to know to confidently navigate the murky waters of the Berlin Wall and come out on top.
