with Garry Kasparov
Garry Kasparov is one of the strongest chess players of all time and a great personality who represented the sport like no other chess professional. Now Kasparov comes into your home and shares with you his knowledge of one of the great openings in chess. Garry Kasparov took to the Queen's Gambit at a relatively late stage of his chess career, but then had the best training anyone could imagine: in his first match for the world championship against Anatoly Karpov, this opening appeared on the board no less than 19 times. With great eloquence Kasparov speaks about variations and ideas of the Classical Queen's Gambit and how they were developed by the champions of their age - Steinitz, Lasker, Rubinstein, Capablanca and Alekhine.
Kasparov does not just work through the variations one by one: fluent transitions enable chess students to understand the main ideas and see new connections. Even people who don't play this opening will benefit enormously from Kasparov's explanations, learning from this genius's vast knowledge of the game and his views on chess history. In all there is more than three hours of first-class private tuition with video commentary in English language.
