      KOMODO CHESS 8 - Multiprocessor Version
      Brings Creativity Back To Chess!
      Catalog Code: WIN0428CB

      Komodo is a chess program that is different from the rest. Its search makes greater use of extensions than any other top engine, which allows Komodo to often see deeper than any other engine, even if it is displaying a slightly lower search depth. The evaluation differs from its main rivals because it represents a blend of both automated tuning and the judgment of a grandmaster and computer expert (Larry Kaufman). Fully automated evaluations are subject to rather large sample error, and applying some chess judgment appears to be beneficial, both in results and in the reasonableness of reported evaluations.

      The Sicilian Tajmanov-Scheveningen - Alejandro Ramirez
      A Safe Path Through the Sicilian Jungle
      Catalog Code: WIN0425CB

      The Sicilian has been known for decades as the most reliable way for Black to obtain an unbalanced but good position. Among the most popular Sicilians at the top level the two that certainly stand out are the Najdorf and the Paulsen. Unlike the Najdorf, the Paulsen provides a safer and more positionally based way of fighting against 1.e4. Black is able to obtain adequate counterplay in all variations without going for a do-or-die type of attack.

      Fighting Against the Caro-Kann with the Advance Variation - Victor Bologan
      A Repertoire for White
      Catalog Code: WIN0424CB

      The Caro-Kann Defence is one of the most solid replies for Black after 1.e4. I’ve played it myself for many years with black, so I know how difficult is to gain an advantage with white. My choice of the Advance Variation for White is because of the complex strategical play in which White has a long-term space advantage. - Victor Bologan

      Deep Fritz 14 Chess Playing Software Program
      IN STOCK - SHIPS IMMEDIATELY!
      Catalog Code: WIN0001CB-PRE

      Single-processor engines are a thing of the past – that's why the new Fritz comes as a powerful multi-processor version right from the word go. Deep Fritz 14 features a 64-bit engine, and, like its predecessor, can support up to eight processor cores simultaneously. That's where the similarities end, however, as the engine itself has been completely redesigned and packs almost 100 Elo points more than the previous version, putting Deep Fritz 14 amongst the strongest chess programs in the world.

      Optimized for Windows 8.1: With its novel 64-bit program interface, Deep Fritz 14 runs faster and flows better on the latest versions of Windows. Naturally, the new version retains all of the well-known playing, training and analysis functions that made Fritz the most popular chess program in the world.

      The English Hedgehog Defence - Lubomir Ftacnik
      Catalog Code: WIN0390CB

      This DVD by Lubomir Ftacnik deals with the Hedgehog structure and its phenomenal potential for generating active counterplay with Black. The appeal of elastic piece development around a dynamic pawn structure has helped to spread this concept to many other openings. The author has consciously limited his survey to the English Hedgehog with an emphasis on the challenges Black faces following the centralisation of White’s queen after 1.c4 c5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nc3 e6 4.g3 b6 5.Bg2 Bb7 6.0-0 Be7 7.d4 cxd4 8.Qxd4. While Black will have to survive various challenges to his position, as the aggressor enjoys a slight advantage in development and has great freedom of movement for his pieces, once the defender manages to fend off direct aggression, his prospects are usually quite promising.

      Catalog Code: WIN0414CB

      The Grünfeld is a highly dynamic opening in which Black’s position often seems to hang together by a single thread; and yet, this apparently precarious equilibrium appears to be enough to make it entirely viable - up to the highest level.

      The English Defense - Dejan Bojkov
      Catalog Code: WIN0377CB

      In the 1970s a group of strong English players (Miles, Speelman, Keene above all and later Short) developed a slightly unusual opening starting after the moves 1.d4 e6 2.c4 b6. Just like in the Grünfeld or the Alekhine Defences, Black concedes the centre. However, rather than provoking pawn advances by an early development of the knights, Black wants instead to develop his bishops (most frequently to the squares b7 and b4). This approach contradicts the orthodox rule of development (knights before bishops) but is not it better to get some pieces out instead of spending a lot of tempi with the knight in provocation?! The original character of the play as well as the good preparation by the aforementioned grandmasters led to the recognition of this setup as the English Defence.

      The onus is typically on the player with the Isolated Queen’s Pawn to find dynamic resources that compensate their structural weakness. The aim of this DVD is to offer the viewer tactical exercises that also illustrate the attacking prospects within IQP positions, and as the ensuing positions can arise from so many different openings, the content of the DVD emphasizes the importance of understanding this type of pawn structure.

      The Reti - A Flexible Attacking Opening - Alejandro Ramirez

      The Nimzo-Indian, the Gruenfeld and the King’s Indian Defence are three incredibly uncomfortable defences to meet. This hypermodern DVD gives new ideas on how to squash these setups with sound, positional play based on double fianchetto systems. This DVD focuses on the move 1.Nf3 and covers the necessary variations to meet Black’s most popular systems, including the ones listed above as well as the Slav and Catalan/Orthodox type setups. White steers away from mainstream theory while still being on the aggressive side and causing Black problems from the beginning.

But his success against Capablanca was still a surprise because the Cuban was considered to be virtually unbeatable.
