    DOWNLOAD - The Surprising Sicilian! - Shock the Opposition with an early ...Qb6 - Andrew Martin

    $33.95
    In the modern game, a player has to be ready to play almost any opening variation at short notice. The plan is to interrupt the preparation of the opponent at every turn. A knowledge of dynamic and slightly unusual lines could well score many,many points for the resourceful player. The Kveinys Variation : 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 e6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Qb6! is surprisingly little-played, yet gives Black excellent chances and on this new ChessBase DVD, Andrew Martin explains how the system works. For the Master, we have a surprise weapon which players of the calibre of Svidler, Judit Polgar and Kveinys have used to defeat tough opposition. For the club player, where preparation is sketchy, we have a line which asks questions of the opponent right at the beginning of the game and creates immediate pressure on White to find good moves. That is the way to win! Perhaps the Kveinys variation will become more popular in the future. It does not deserve to be a comparatively rare sideline. Learn More

  7. DOWNLOAD - The Popular Italian - Victor Bologan

    DOWNLOAD - The Popular Italian - Victor Bologan

    $33.95
    When we are kids we are mostly taught to play 1.e4, and the first mate we see is the one with Bc4, Qh5 and Qxf7++. It looks like chess theory is turning back to its roots when the move 3.Bc4 was much more popular than 3.Bb5. Nowadays all top tournaments are full of Italian games, and it proves much more difficult for Black to achieve equality there than in some Marshall or Berlin variation of the Ruy Lopez. In the Italian, the focus of the battle is transposed from the opening to the middle game which requires from both sides good knowledge of typical plans and ideas - and thus a totally new concept of opening preparation which is exactly what you find on the DVD! In the actual DVD Bologan covered all answers by Black against 3.Bc4, especially 3...Bc5, presenting all relevant possibilities for White. It is full of positional ideas and plans, and it it will definitely raise your chess understanding to the highest standards. Learn More

    DOWNLOAD - The Amazing Albin Counter-Gambit - Lawrence Trent

    $33.95
    The Albin Counter-Gambit (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e5!?) has been a favourite of Grandmasters and amateur players alike since it was popularised by Adolf Albin in the 1890s. This hyper-aggressive system, which immediately sets out to destabilize White’s position, had a renaissance in the mid-2000s when none other than GM Alexander Morozevich revitalised the opening with a number of fresh ideas and excellent results. While it has since gone "out of fashion", IM Lawrence Trent discussed a number of extremely dangerous Theoretical Novelties which will truly put the Albin Counter-Gambit back on the map. Learn More

    $33.95
    After 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 g6! leads to the so-called “Accelerated Dragon Defense” of the Sicilian, which is characterised by the idea to achieve the thematic central break d7-d5 in one move (in contrast to the “Dragon Variation”, in which Black plays d7-d6). On this DVD the Russian grandmaster and top women player Nadezhda Kosintseva reveals the secrets of her favourite opening. Kosintseva has played the Accelerated Dragon for many years and achieved a lot of success with it. You too can accelerate your opening – with this complete repertoire for Black against 1.e4!

    DOWNLOAD - A Classical Guide to the French Defence - Yannick Pelletier

    $33.95
    The French Defence is the sharpest opening setup against 1.e4. With his first two moves, e6 and d5, Black tries to provoke the advance e4-e5. This closes the centre and gives Black the opportunity to get active play on both wings.

    GM Yannick Pelletier is a specialist of this opening, and believes that the most efficient way to understand its ideas, plans, and typical structures is to study classical lines. He offers you a repertoire that is based on well-established lines that have been tried and tested for decades and that have proven their validity. Learn More
