How many times have we found ourselves staring at the board, with an apparently easy position, without having the faintest idea of how to proceed? We know that the win is there, but it's impossible to come up with the right idea, probably only for we don't know the technique to pull out the win. And here is YOUR video-series, then! Joel makes you understand how to tackle a position, with his incredible and super-clear way to explain chess ideas and concepts. Don't miss this new, exciting, and useful feat by GM Joel Benjamin! Watch the videos to get your game one of five notches up.

This week we will examine examples of exploitation of a weak square, in particular, d5 as a weakness in Black's position, and d4 as a weakness in White's position. This situation comes about from a particular transaction in the center. This week's games will range from the sublime to the ridiculous - two games by Bobby Fischer, and two of my own.
