    Presented by IM Bill Paschall
    Catalog Code: DVD0167CL

    Those who play the Gruenfeld defense knew that it could turn into a nightmare in an instant.

Here IM Paschall takes us through Botvinniks games in the Gruenfeld as both black and white.

    Catalog Code: DVD0086EP

    GM Andrei Volokitin presents a 3 hour masterclass on the Sicilian Najdorf – considered the Rolls Royce (or Cadillac) of chess openings. A favorite of Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov, the Najdorf variation gives both White and Black many ways to play for a win. However, the opening is so sharp that one mistake can mean defeat – which is why it is essential to understand the Najdorf properly if you are going to play it yourself or if you are a 1.e4 player. Even after the initial moves (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6) there are many good alternatives.
