    E-DVD FOXY OPENINGS - Volume 159 - Vienna Gambit
    Catalog Code: E-DVD0159FX

    The vast majority of chessplayers play for fun; for them chess is enjoyment and not a professional endeavour. If you are running aground against 1 e4 e5 , then why not try the sharp Vienna Gambits suggested by IM Andrew Martin on this DVD? Pressure is brought to bear on Black in unusual ways at an early stage and there is nothing more enjoyable than getting on to the attack early with White and watching the opponent struggle.

    Presented by GM Bryan Smith, IM David Vigorito, FM Dennis Monokroussos, LM Dana Mackenzie and IM Valeri Lilov
    Catalog Code: DVD0150CL

    The Vienna Game is an chess opening that begins with the moves: 1. e4 e5 2. Nc3 The original idea behind the Vienna Game was to play a delayed King’s Gambit with f4. In modern play White often plays more quietly (for example by fianchetto his king's bishop with g3 and Bg2). This DVD covers several variations of the Vienna game including the Mieses and Frankenstein-Dracula Variation. IM Vigorito goes into all of the reasons why you may not want to play the Vienna game.

    Volume One introduces Martin's new "Winning Repertoire Series for White - 1.e4", which outlines a complete repertoire system for the first player, built around the King's Pawn opening. Here IM Martin has prepared the Scotch Opening in case Black answers 1...e5, but he aims to use the tricky move order 1.e4 e5 2.d4 exd4 3.Nf3 and so avoid (for example) the Petroff Defense. Throughout, we find that Martin prepares White to get up and running, set to play 1.e4 in a short amount of time.
