Expert handling of the Maroczy Bind is illustrated with an explanation of the theory, a classic game, and an additional instructive game of his own.ECO: B36, B38

 

Content : One hour of instruction and analysis in a series of 3 lectures. PGNs Included

 

Members of ChessLecture.com rated this series a 4.43 out of 5 Fans on Chesslecture.com said: This is really scary stuff for the Black side. I started playing 1.Nf3 with a later c4, and several games have gone into Maroczy binds. I definitely need to study this series.
