Some really classy moves from Lasker there, especially the transition to a winning endgame!

Number 1 lesson I'm learning from Lasker, which is actually sinking in quite a lot, is resist temptation to capture. I just hope I also don't learn the other lesson which is resist temptation to castle...!

GM Smirnov has a good lesson in which he contends that one of the most common mistakes that lesser players make is capturing/exchanging just because "they can". He showed a number of positions where the winning idea was to avoid exchanging for various reasons. You can find it on youtube by searching "The most common mistake by GM Igor Smirnov". I have thought about it since I saw his video and I believe it improved my play, if incrementally, :)

Smirnov is one of my favourite youtube teachers. He really teaches with a lot of clarity and focuses on specific concepts and motifs, rather than just theory or general games, which is something not enough people do in my opinion (Dennis was great for this too actually). Not sure if the Smirnov Gambit is really as playable as he says but it would definitely make for a fun suprise weapon.

We're a bit off-topic here, but I believe the Portsmouth Gambit ( no, it's not the "Smirnoff Gambit"!) is a viable opening- his video does not cover some of the newer lines which are pretty strong for White. I will be doing a video on these lines at some point.

To get back on-topic, I'm really getting a lot out of these historical vids Curtains is doing- before the series, I think I had played through 2 or 3 Lasker games at the most- Greg is doing us all a real service here. :)

agree. I used to watch all of Greg's work, but I've cut back... But I still am watching the historical stuff. Great job Greg!

A long time ago Danny Rensch showed me this structure with g6, e6 and Nge7 and since then I've not had any trouble playing against the Grand Prix Attack and always seem to have easy plans to follow.
