GM Raunak Sadhwani reveals…
Let’s face it… when choosing your openings, you’ve got to be practical.
Who has got the time to study 7 variations in the Najdorf, 5 in the Dragon, 5 in the Classical Sicilian…?
If you want to get out on top right from the opening—without dedicating every waking hour to memorizing lines and moves—you need a secret weapon.
Enter 1.b3 (Nimzowitsch-Larsen Attack).
The beauty of this opening is that we ask Black, “what are you going to do?” — and very often they do not have a good reply.
Like the London and the Colle, we play our first moves regardless of what Black does.
That’s why GM Raunak Sadhwani, the 9th youngest grandmaster in chess history and a chess prodigy, is here with his first-ever chess course 1.b3 opening for White.
This sharp, almost unexplored opening is studied and decoded by Sadhwani in this exclusive 7-hour video training with real game commentaries and line-by-line analysis.
About the Author:
GM Raunak Sadhwani [2555 FIDE]
Raunak Sadhwani is an Indian chess player and Grandmaster. A chess prodigy, he achieved the title of Grandmaster at age 13. He is the 9th youngest player in history and the 4th youngest Indian to become a Grandmaster. Raunak’s peak Elo is 2555.
Here’s what you would learn:
- White’s a-pawn push. Who cares? Let him attack your b-pawn…even exchange it. You are going to exploit this to your advantage and grab a good piece of the center instead (yes, harass the f6-knight!).
- Very sharp c4/c5. This can be a dangerous idea for Black when he places his bishop on d6. White sacrifices that pawn for better activity and ends up destroying Black’s pawn structure and having better piece activity.
- Amazing queen sacrifice. Raunak shows you an interesting line in the 1…c5 variation where White gives away his queen for three of Black’s minor pieces. Imbalances abound, and White has got a solid chance of winning.
- Two pawns ahead. And Black’s king lost his castling rights. Sounds bad, right? Raunak shows you how to milk his vulnerable king, damaging Black’s piece coordination, and posing a serious threat.
- White’s b3-e3 setup. Often, Black can stop Bb5 by a simple move 3…a6. What should White do? White should play c5 as usual—and lure Black into committing positional blunders instead.
Want to take your opponent out of their opening book right off the bat? Do you thrive in open, tactical positions? This opening is for you.
