L'Ami conquers Iceland


GM Erwin L'Am

GM Erwin L'Ami played the tournament of his life in Reykjavik, winning the strong open with a round to go. Today, in the last round, L'Ami lost to Eljanov, but nobody could catch him after the impressive 8.5/9 he achieved, that allowed him to celebrate his victory yesterday. It happens that a player who has played amazingly well, and wins a tournament with a round or two to spare, relaxes a bit after the adrenaline rush caused by the important result. Eljanov played a great tournament as well, finishing 2-3 with French GM Fabien Libiszewski. Mamedyarov, the favorite of the event, finished 4-10. Congratulations to GM L'Ami for this amazing victory!

Tactics for Everyone!

GM Ronen Har-Zvi tackles one of the most important part of the game: Tactics. And he does this by a beginner and intermediate player's perspective: everyone will be able to enjoy, learn and improve watching this new series. All of us have at least once asked ourselves the typical questions: What is tactics in chess? Why is tactics one of the most important piece of knowledge you need to play chess? How to spot tactics in a game? How to take advantage of it? Well, Ronen is here to answer our queries, by guiding us - with many interesting examples - through the basics of chess tactics, such as double-attacks, forks, pins, how to use material to create tactics; to then move on into more complicated topics, such as intermediate moves, double threats, and more. Now you can own these amazing videos, and watch them whenever and wherever you want, on any device!

ICC videos

One of the great benefits of ICC (apart from all the top-notch online play and tournaments) in recent years has been the upgrade in our popular video and broadcast service - many members agree that the live Radio commentary plus GOTDs from our elite tournament coverage, and our regular weekly shows alone is worthy of their membership fee.
