    Understand the Bogo-Indian
     
    GM-Ioannis-Papaioannou-33b9a5b0fb
     
    The masterclass of GM Papaioannou - Understand the Bogo-Indian is already a digital product. 

    This product includes all the videos from the masterclass as well as the PGN file related to the training sessions. Overall, the material consists of approximately 4.5 hours of video and a PGN database which includes 64 files!

    You will find the following lectures:

    1) Typical Structures after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Bb4+ 4.Bd2

    2) Typical Structures after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Bb4+ 4.Nd2

    3) Theoretical Preparation

    The main goal of the entire masterclass is to provide a complete, easy to learn and reliable Bogo-Indian repertoire. Additionally, in his theoretical lecture, GM Papaioannou suggests a universal setup based on 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 and ...Bb4. This special line works against 3.Nc3, 3.Nf3 and 3.g3. 

    Now, we shall take a look at the different lectures.

    Typical Structures after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Bb4+ 4.Bd2

    The Bogo-Indian journey starts with the most important structures that you should know when facing the system with 4.Bd2. GM Papaioannou suggests 4...Qe7.

    diagram1-2b5eb8d2fc

    According to Papaioannou, this system is easy and practical. After exchanging his dark-squared bishop, Black is planning to follow with ...d7-d6 and ...e6-e5. Actually, Black will play ...Bxd2 against pretty much everything, except 5.g3.

    The coverage of the arising structures is divided into 3 parts:

    1) Dark Square Strategy

    2) Light Square Strategy

    3) Capablanca Method

    All the subtleties related to the structures arising after 4.Bd2 are covered in 37 files from the PGN version of the lecture. These files include learning examples and model games.

    Below, you can try to solve the following position taken from the lecture:

    How should Black develop his long-term strategy in this typical position?

    The second lecture of GM Papaioannou is dedicated to the structures arising after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Bb4+ 4.Nd2

    diagram3-0633ea999c

    The system with 4.Nbd2 is an ambitious way to play for an advantage. In most of the lines, White tries to obtain a pair of bishops. Once again, Papaioannou suggests a very practical approach. He suggests 4...b6 followed by ...Bxd2 whenever White plays a2-a3. This setup is consistent with the recommendation against 4.Bd2. In most of the arising positions, Black applies a light square strategy. There are many positional subtleties that you should know in order to play this line. Once you get a proper understanding, you need almost no theory to start playing in this way. 

    You can take a look at the following important model game.

     Theoretical Preparation

    After showing the important pawn structures, GM Papaioannou builds a high-class opening repertoire that is entirely based on the covered material. Such an approach makes the repertoire very practical since you do not need to remember almost anything

    As a bonus, the grandmaster provides a universal setup based on 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 and ...Bb4. This special line works against 3.Nc3, 3.Nf3 and 3.g3.

    Here is how he explains this special line:

    In the final section of the camp database, I would like to provide a pretty much universal opening system that can be used both in Bogo-Indian and  Nimzo-Indian. This is a repertoire that I have created for my students. To build this scheme, I have borrowed ideas from different openings arising after  1...Nf6 and 2...e6. The first important point is that after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6

    US-0a2ac4a1d0

    Black is planning to play ...Bb4 against pretty much everything. The setup is very simple. After ...Bb4, we are ready to exchange this bishop either for a bishop or a knight. Afterwards, Black follows with ...d7-d6, ... 0-0, ...Qe7, ...Nbd7, ...e6-e5, ...Re8, ...Nf8-g6. Strangely enough, this setup works against pretty much everything. Since we have already studied the Bogo-Indian Defence, in this section, I will mostly focus on examples taken from the Nimzo-Indian Defence.

    In the theoretical section, you will find opening lines as well as model games.
