Garry Kasparov Masterclass Review

Garry Kasparov Teaches Chess is the latest Masterclass by World Champion Garry Kasparov. I am sure that even from the trailer, you can see that it is of exceptional quality.

According to the FAQ, “the class will test players with a US rating of 1300-1700 and include more advanced concepts and examples that will benefit 1800+ rated players”. Most amateur players will fall under this range.

The price may seem steep ($90), but it is lifetime access so one can watch it over and over again. Also, there are 20+ lessons.

Review by one of our readers (Nicholas): I have seen it. It is fantastic. A general view of chess and many thoughts, well explained, well presented, it is what is called a Master Class, no less, with a player that is better than any of the 30 top world players right now. So, it is the best 90 dollars I’ve spent in may years

Personally, I like the way Garry Kasparov plays the Queen’s Gambit. He often plays the Exchange variation (cxd5), and sets up the formation of Bishop d3, Knight e2, with the plan of f3 to support an eventual e4. This is suitable for attacking players who play 1. d4! The other plan in the Queen’s Gambit is the Minority Attack which is suitable for positional players.
