AlphaZero’s Positional Play (Exchange Sacrifice!)
UPDATE: Hey folks! Thank you for your kind words about my AlphaZero videos! I don’t have new AZ videos on this channel but I have created something even bigger: an entire chess course (Attack like a machine!) highly influenced by AlphaZero’s play, with the main chapter dedicated to AlphaZero’s attacking chess! You can check out the preview video and find out more about the course here: https://www.chessable.com/anna-1
After the video “AlphaZero’s Attacking Chess” Anna Rudolf brings a new game analysis to you, this time focusing on the positional aspects of AlphaZero’s play: strategic plans, manoeuvres, the weakening of the opponent’s pawn structure, and last but not least… a positional exchange sacrifice!
