Strategy Session with GM Yermo

Posted: February 15th, 2010 by Daniel Rensch

Grand Master Yermolinsky was extremely excited to present his material on Thursday January 28th for the Strategy Session (Group Lesson) in Mesa. After spending all week reviewing the live games from Wijk aan Zee (Corus Super-GM Tournament), Alex and Danny knew that only one topic would suffice: GM Hikaru Nakamura Night! Although Nakamura only finished tied for 4th place in last week’s Corus tournament, at the time of the Strategy Session, Nakamura was among the leaders of the event and had just finished a completely brilliant win against GM Alexi Shirov.

Alex compiled a list of GM Hikaru Nakamura’s greatest games, and he displayed exactly how “Naka” wins in the Opening, the Middlegame, and the Endgame. Here is an excerpt of what GM Yermolisnky covered, and we hope that all those present enjoyed the lecture. Thanks for coming…
