GM Misa Pap - Strategic Planning in Chess - Vd8: Play vs. the Blocked Center

Opening: C02: French: Advance Variation

Player(s): Carlsen, Duda, Volokitin, Vitiugov, Khanin, Firouzja, Svidler, Andreikin,

In this video, GM Misa shows you, as promised, how to play against the blocked center, the same type as in the previous video: French blockade. Black has basically 2 main ideas here: either to play for complete demolition of the white's center or to organize a quick and powerful counterplay on the Queenside and on the c file, as we can see in the recent Carlsen - Duda game from the World Cup, where the World Champion got knocked out because his counterplay on the kingside was too late! Of course, in this video, you can see both of those methods.
