More GM Instruction

Professional Opening Preparation (8:49) • 'I've realized how it is important to be well prepared in an opening stage. When you play against a strong opponent, an opening preparation exerts strong influence on the final result.'

GM Igor Smirnov:- 'Here is my first advice to you: Don't play dubious openings', e.g. the King's Gambit, Bird's Opening, 'and other stuff like that'. • This advice goes against the principles of many amateur players, but don't forget that the title is 'Professional Opening Preparation'.
