    2. Flank Attacks - Valeri Lilov

      Flank Attacks - Valeri Lilov

      Regular Price: $36.95

      Our Price: $33.95

      The flank attack is one of those sneaky ways of surrounding your opponent's forces and getting to your target fast! So, do we really need to master flank attacks to use them or protect ourselves from them effectively? The answer is a resounding "Yes!" Learn More
    3. Fighting Against the Caro-Kann with the Advance Variation - Victor Bologan

      Fighting Against the Caro-Kann with the Advance Variation - Victor Bologan

      Regular Price: $39.95

      Our Price: $36.95

      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 Learn More
    4. FRITZ TRAINER - Winning Against the Grunfeld - Mihail Marin

      FRITZ TRAINER - Winning Against the Grunfeld - Mihail Marin

      Regular Price: $39.95

      Our Price: $36.95

      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. Learn More
    5. Play the Pirc Like a Grandmaster - Attacking Lines - Mihail Marin - VOL. 2

      Play the Pirc Like a Grandmaster - Attacking Lines - Mihail Marin - VOL. 2

      Regular Price: $39.95

      Our Price: $36.95

      Is there an absolute truth in a flexible opening such as the Pirc Defense? After I had played and studied the Pirc intensively for more than ten years I was sure I had found the best move order against each White system. Then I stopped playing the opening for a while and when I checked new ideas I realized that things were not that simple. Thus, the repertoire I recommend on this DVD is a combination of good lines in my old repertoire that have stood the test of time and new lines inspired by my fresh look at the Pirc. When playing the Pirc one must know what to do against White‘s attacking systems. Learn More

    7. The English Defense - Dejan Bojkov

      The English Defense - Dejan Bojkov

      Regular Price: $36.95

      Our Price: $33.95

      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. Learn More
    8. Crushing Isolated Queen's Pawn Tactics - Robert Ris

      Crushing Isolated Queen's Pawn Tactics - Robert Ris

      Regular Price: $39.95

      Our Price: $36.95

      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. Learn More
    9. The Wicked Veresov Attack - Andrew Martin

      The Wicked Veresov Attack - Andrew Martin

      Regular Price: $36.95

      Our Price: $33.95

      Andrew Martin: The wicked Veresov Attack A tricky Opening with 1.d4 The Veresov ( 1 d4 Nf6 2 Nc3 d5 3 Bg5) is little-played and understood when we compare it to other queen’s pawn openings, like the Trompowsky, Torre Attack and London system. As such it can be a very dangerous weapon in the right hands. Very few club or amateur players will be properly prepared to play against it. Learn More
    10. The Reti - A Flexible Attacking Opening - Alejandro Ramirez

      The Reti - A Flexible Attacking Opening - Alejandro Ramirez

      Regular Price: $36.95

      Our Price: $33.95

      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. Learn More
    11. The Modern Scotch Opening - Parimarjan Negi

      The Modern Scotch Opening - Parimarjan Negi

      Regular Price: $39.95

      Our Price: $36.95

      The Scotch has long been associated with exciting play, although people often doubt it’s positional base. But the opening has evolved from the swashbuckling games of the 19th century to become a sound, but aggressive, alternative to the evergreen Spanish. In his first Fritz-Trainer DVD, Parimarjan Negi looks at the latest revolution in Scotch theory that has completely changed white’s plans, and once again brought back the interest of the world’s elite. Negi presents not only the white strategies in detail but also outlines a dynamic way for Black to counter this latest trend. Learn More

      FRITZ TRAINER - Improve your Chess with Tania Sachdev

      Regular Price: $36.95

      Our Price: $33.95

      Even less-experienced chess players have learnt how to develop their pieces in the opening or even know certain opening variations by heart. But when the middlegame starts, they don’t know how to judge positions and develop their play – and their chess stagnates. Learn More

    17. FRITZ TRAINER - Power Strategy 1 - Mihail Marin

      FRITZ TRAINER - Power Strategy 1 - Mihail Marin

      Regular Price: $39.95

      Our Price: $36.95

      In chess, like in real life, one frequently faces temptations: to grab a pawn, to occupy an open file, to start a kingside attack and so on. There is nothing fundamentally wrong with all these ideas, but before undertaking such concrete actions, one should be sure the position is ripe for it. Learn More
    18. First Steps in Pawn Structures - Andrew Martin

      First Steps in Pawn Structures - Andrew Martin

      Regular Price: $36.95

      Our Price: $33.95

      Understanding how to use pawns and how to handle different pawn structures are important topics for young or improving players to consider. On this new ChessBase DVD, IM and FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin investigates the notion that ‘pawns are the soul of chess’ and tries to explain exactly what this means. The effective use of pawns in the opening leads to the correct development of the pieces and a good game springs naturally from there. The pawn structure must be considered throughout the game and this is something that Martin also touches upon. The viewer will be treated to a tour of excellent games, both old and new, many from the period 2012-2014, which highlight key ideas about the correct use of pawns and from which one cannot fail to improve one’s technique. Thus this DVD is ideal for players below 1800 or indeed ambitious players of any level. Learn More

    21. Improve Your Chess Tactics with Tania Sachdev

      Improve Your Chess Tactics with Tania Sachdev

      Regular Price: $36.95

      Our Price: $33.95

      My first chess DVD focused on various strategic middlegame themes and concepts, but in this second installment, the focus is on tactics – for after all, strategy and tactics go hand in hand, and playing strategically often leads to a resounding combinative finish. But for that to happen, you have to be able to build up positions through which tactics can flow – and this is exactly what I have illustrated on the DVD with a number of examples. The aim of this course is to help you understand how you to make tactical opportunities arise as w ell as to sharpen your tactical vision - these selected lectures will help to foster your overall tactical understanding. You can never spend too little time solving combinations and studies to improve your calculating abilities!“ Learn More
