AS236: a fine display of the attacking prowess of queen and knight! This game is enough to make the supposedly superior bishop extremely jealous.
The bishops strike back! We all know that Bishops love open lines. In AS237 we see the White king receiving a right religious rollicking.
Central Domination: in AS238 White grabs the center with both hands and then torments Black before very effectively putting him out of his misery.
AS239 Creative play brings White the full point in one of Black's most difficult to break down lines.
Exploiting passive play. In AS240 we see GM Joe Gallagher give a masterclass on this very subject.
Black pays the ultimate price for weakening his kingside in AS241.
Black makes a common mistake for which he is soundly punished. AS242 is a game with which all Torre specialists should be familiar.
When playing the Torre you should always think very carefully before dismantling your center. In AS243 we see Black giving an extremely convincing demonstration of exactly how to exploit such lack of thought.
AS244 Black tries a little played idea in one of the main lines of the variation. He is rewarded with the full point in a very interesting game, where White certainly also had his chances.
The Black Knights' twisty tango: AS245 Somehow, I can't see this d-pawn special really catching on.
