    Garry Kasparov is widely believed to be the best chess player in the history of the game. Kasparov’s accomplishments on the board are unparalleled, as the former World Chess Champion dominated the game with a fury that has not yet been matched.

    Decimate Black with the Evans Gambit - EMPIRE CHESS
    Catalog Code: DVD0012EP

    The Evans Gambit is one of the most dangerous chess openings ever invented as white recklessly sacrifices a pawn on move 4 to obtain a lasting initiative with an enduring lead in development. The Evans Gambit arises via the move order 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. b4!? – as white sacrifices this pawn to distract black’s minor pieces and open lines for instant attacking prospects as black’s king will have a difficult time getting out of the center.

The Accelerated Dragon has been employed by countless top Grandmasters over the last 70 years, including legendary names Viktor Korchnoi, Vladimir Kramnik, Alexander Morozevich, Vassily Ivanchuk, Alexander Khalifman, and many more.

    Secrets of the Janisch Gambit - EMPIRE CHESS
    Catalog Code: DVD0015EP

    The Janisch Gambit is an exceptionally effective surprise weapon for black against the Ruy Lopez. Also known as the Schliemann Defense, black kicks off the game by immediately offering a pawn sacrifice on move 3 with 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 f5!? – resembling a reversed Vienna Gambit or King’s Gambit in that black is rapidly introducing extra firepower with the f-pawn to attack white’s center.

    Dominate with the King's Indian Defense 6… Na6 System - EMPIRE CHESS
    Catalog Code: DVD0002EP

    The King`s Indian Defense is one of the most popular chess opening systems ever played due to the naturally dynamic and double-edged positions that frequently arise. Since the early 20th century the King`s Indian Defense has been regularly employed at the highest levels of chess by legendary names like David Bronstein, Bobby Fischer, and Garry Kasparov to name a few. However the King`s Indian Defense has experienced a slight decline in popularity in recent years due to the hyper-aggressive Bayonet Attack (used by the white pieces and commonly seen by players like Anand and Kramnik.) But many KID die-hard fans have not lost heart, and neither should you! The KID is alive and kicking, and one of this exciting opening`s leading proponents – GM Eugene Perelshteyn – has produced an action-packed chess DVD to explain his battle-tested secrets in a relatively new sideline that starts with 6. …Na6.

    Stomping the Sicilian Defense - EMPIRE CHESS
    Catalog Code: DVD0006EP

    In this DVD series, we will review seven carefully chosen games in which white mounted a successful attack against the Sicilian Defense. The critical theme that ties all the games together is that white is best advised to develop his pieces to active squares and create a sound, harmonious position that limits counterplay before launching the trademark pawn storm to break down the defenses to the black king. While opening theory is not the main subject of the series, the seven games come from many different Sicilians, most prominently the Dragon, Taimanov, Sveshnikov, and Najdorf variations. All of the chosen games are discussed in their entirety, and all of them were played by world class players. It is my hope that this series will give the aspiring 1. e4 player knowledge, experience, and inspiration in tackling the most complex of all opening systems.
