Positional Sacrifices – GM Bryan Smith
Positional sacrifices are rarely seen at club level… but you find them everywhere in Grandmaster games.
That should tell you a lot about high-level positional play. Club players value material above nearly everything. GMs value space, activity, and the quality of the pieces.
In this groundbreaking 8-hour course, top American Grandmaster Bryan Smith details the many types of positional sacrifice, including how to tell when they will work and what to do afterwards to get that win.
Unlike tactical sacrifices where you deliver checkmate or win back the material fairly quickly, positional sacrifices require an understanding of imbalances and positional play… the high-level skills that Bryan teaches in this course.
GM Smith has hand-picked 31 lesser-known classics from luminaries such as Kasparov, Kramnik, Botvinnik, Tal, and Alekhine, each one revealing a new secret of positional play and sacrifices.
Take your positional understanding to a whole new level with this masterclass on imbalances and dynamism.
