    The Stonewall Dutch - A Fighting Repertoire Against 1. d4 - Erwin L'Ami

    $33.95
    When opening theory is growing exponentially, it is great to have an opening that is mainly based on ideas: the Dutch Stonewall! Players such as Mikhail Botwinnik and Magnus Carlsen liked this system, in which Black from the very first move fights for the initiative. On this DVD Grandmaster Erwin l’Ami, second of world class player Anish Giri, takes the viewer on a fascinating journey to show him the depth and attractions of this attractive opening. At the end of the journey you will have a new fighting repertoire against 1.d4! Learn More
  2. The Art of the Positional Exchange Sacrifice - Sergei Tiviakov

    The Art of the Positional Exchange Sacrifice - Sergei Tiviakov

    $33.95
    The positional exchange sacrifice is one of the most powerful and fascinating strategic weapons in chess. On this DVD Sergey Tiviakov explains why the positional exchange sacrifice is such a strong weapon and how to use it. This DVD is based on 35 games or positions from the practice of the World Champions such as Tigran Petrosian, Mikhail Botvinnik, Garry Kasparov and other strong players who used the positional exchange sacrifice to initiate brilliant attacks or defend difficult positions.

  4. How to Crack the Berlin Wall with 5. Re1 - Alexei Shirov

    How to Crack the Berlin Wall with 5. Re1 - Alexei Shirov

    $33.95
    The Berlin Defence which arises after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.O-O Nxe4 gives White a hard nut to crack, and the solidity of the line led to its nickname “Berlin Wall”. The mainline 5.d4 in particular leads to positions in which White has had trouble to prove any advantage. On this DVD Latvian top player Alexei Shirov proposes a different approach. He recommends to play 5.Re1 which leads to a symmetrical position that according to Shirov is not boring at all. With a whole range of grandmaster games Shirov shows that White can indeed develop pressure and seize the initiative and that the position is full of subtleties. Learn More

    Meeting the Gambits - Vol. 1 - Gambits after 1. e4 - Andrew Martin

    $33.95
    Despite the advances in computing power, gambit play is still very common, especially among young players, club players and improvers, and it is wise to learn how to defend against these dangerous ideas. You do not want to be wiped out in the opening! On Meeting the Gambits Vol. 1; Gambits after 1.e4, FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin provides you with an excellent selection of repertoire choices and teaches you the right approach to take against gambiteers.

  16. The Spanish Fianchetto - Sam Collins

    The Spanish Fianchetto - Sam Collins

    $33.95
    In the fight for playable, unbalanced positions after 1.e4 e5, many top players (including World Champion Magnus Carlsen) turned to 3…g6 against the Ruy Lopez (2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5). Black aims for a kingside fianchetto combined, depending on White’s reaction, with …Nf6 or a quick …f5. In this DVD, Sam Collins explains the key ideas of 3…g6 and provides a complete repertoire for Black, suitable for regular use. Learn More
  17. Evan's Gambit for the New Generation - Simon Williams

    Evan's Gambit for the New Generation - Simon Williams

    $33.95
    The Evans is an attempt to destroy Black in gambit fashion straight out of the opening and giants of previous years such as Adolf Andersson and Paul Morphy played lots of brilliancies with it. But the Evans Gambit has stood up to the test of time and in the modern era players such as Garry Kasparov, Hikaru Nakamura or Wei Yi have tried it with success. This DVD will prove that the gambit is still fully playable and a great way to try and blast Black away right from move one. Learn More
  18. How to Exchange Pieces - Elisabeth Pahtz

    How to Exchange Pieces - Elisabeth Pahtz

    $33.95
    Which pieces to keep and which to exchange is one of the most important questions in chess. This is true in the opening, the middlegame and the endgame. Less experienced players often think exchanging means to swap pieces of equal value and fail to take strategic factors into account. The "feeling" for the right exchange is something a chessplayer has to develop over time. This DVD wants to help to develop this "feeling“. Learn More
  19. Master Class - Garry Kasparov

    Master Class - Garry Kasparov

    $33.95
    On this DVD a team of experts gets to the bottom of Kasparov’s play. In over 8 hours of video running time (8 hours both in English and German) the authors Dorian Rogozenko, Mihail Marin, Oliver Reeh and Karsten Müller cast light on four important aspects of Kasparov’s play: the opening, strategy, tactics and the endgame. As a bonus there is video analysis of Kasparov’s computer games (Karsten Müller). In the major database with training questions (162 games with 575 training questions) you can hone your own tactical understanding with the help of Kasparov’s strokes of genius. Learn More
  20. Pawn Structures You Should Know - Adrian Mikhalchishin

    Pawn Structures You Should Know - Adrian Mikhalchishin

    $33.95
    Aaron Nimzowitsch knew how to teach chess and he knew how to study the middlegame: His advice was to “study typical pawn structures.” Every typical structure has its typical plans and to know these plans helps you to find your way in these positions. On this DVD the author presents and explains the most common central structures every chessplayer should know: The Hedgehog, the Maroczy, Hanging pawns and the Isolani. Learn More
  21. Trompowsky for the Attacking Player - Timur Gareyev

    Trompowsky for the Attacking Player - Timur Gareyev

    $33.95
    Grandmaster and "Blindfold King" Timur Gareyev is known for his creative attacking chess. On his new DVD he recommends to play the Trompowsky! (1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5) The Trompowsky is an opening outside of conventional wisdom. Create challenges and make your opponent solve problems early on. Learn More
  22. The 4... Nf6 Caro-Kann - Nigel Davies

    The 4... Nf6 Caro-Kann - Nigel Davies

    $33.95
    The dynamic 4...Nf6 line of the Caro-Kann has been unfashionable in recent years whilst the theory on 4...Bf5 and 4...Nd7 now extends well into the middle game. 4…Nf6 therefore offers a golden opportunity for Caro-Kann players to throw their opponents on their own resources – and here even top Grandmasters can go wrong. On this DVD Nigel Davies examines both the Bronstein-Larsen (5.Nxf6+ gxf6) and the Tartakower (5.Nxf6+ exf6) systems. Learn More
  23. The Semi-Slav - A Grandmaster's Guide for the Tournament Player - Peter Heine Nielsen

    The Semi-Slav - A Grandmaster's Guide for the Tournament Player - Peter Heine Nielsen

    $33.95
    The Semi-Slav (1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 c6) can arise via various moveorders, has decided World Championships, and is one of Black’s most fascinating replies to 1 d4. The complexity and the many possibilities of the variation have intrigued World Champions and generations of strong players, but amateurs often find the lines too complex to handle. Learn More
  24. The Black Lion - An Aggressive Version of the Philidor Defense - Simon Williams

    The Black Lion - An Aggressive Version of the Philidor Defense - Simon Williams

    $33.95
    Looking for an interesting, exciting, aggressive and flexible opening to play against 1 e4!? Then the Black Lion is just the opening for you! The Lion gets ready to roar after 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 e5 4.Nf3 Nbd7 5.Bc4 Be7 6.0–0 c6 – and now Black wants to attack with an early ...g5. Learn More
  25. POWER PLAY - A Repertoire for Black with the Queen's Gambit Declined - Daniel King - VOLUME 23

    POWER PLAY - A Repertoire for Black with the Queen's Gambit Declined - Daniel King - VOLUME 23

    $33.95
    The Queen’s Gambit Declined (QGD) is one of the most reliable openings against 1 d4. With a rock of a pawn in the middle of the board, Black refuses to be pushed over in the centre. Establishing central control gives Black good chances to launch an attack against the enemy king. On this DVD Grandmaster Daniel King offers you a repertoire for Black with the QGD. Learn More
  26. POWER PLAY - A Repertoire for Black Against the Catalan - Daniel King - VOLUME 24

    POWER PLAY - A Repertoire for Black Against the Catalan - Daniel King - VOLUME 24

    $33.95
    The Catalan is a reliable opening for White, but there are ways for Black to shake White out of his complacency while still maintaining a sound and solid position himself. On this DVD Grandmaster Daniel King offers you a repertoire for Black against the Catalan, based around maintaining the rock of a pawn on d5. Learn More
  27. A Gambit Guide through the Open Game - Erwin L'Ami - Volume I

    A Gambit Guide through the Open Game - Erwin L'Ami - Volume I

    $33.95
    Are you well versed in main lines but are you also often surprised by old and forgotten gambit lines? Or are you tired of main lines and do you prefer some easy to learn, yet very dangerous gambits? This is your DVD! In his Gambit Guide Vol. 1 Dutch Grandmaster Erwin l’Ami takes you on a journey through time and shows gambit lines in the Open Games (that is, after 1.e4 e5). Learn More

    A Gambit Guide through the Open Game - Erwin L'Ami - Volume 2

    $33.95

  29. KOMODO CHESS 10

    KOMODO CHESS 10

    $89.95
    Thanks to a host of extensive improvements and fine tweaking, the latest version of Komodo has again gained over 60 Elo points on its predecessor. The changes cover several areas: the evaluation function has been significantly sharpened, particularly with respect to king safety and endgame positions, and the search algorithm has been improved and optimized to run on multiple processors. Komodo 10 is also better at managing its time, and just generally calculates faster. Learn More
  30. Semi-Tarrasch - A Universal Weapon Against 1. d4 - Mihail Marin

    Semi-Tarrasch - A Universal Weapon Against 1. d4 - Mihail Marin

    $33.95
    Even though the Semi-Tarrasch cannot offer a complete repertoire against 1.d4, being conditioned of White’s move order, it is an excellent complement to the Nimzoindian Defence. Moreover, it is a viable way of escaping the strategic pressure in the Exchange Queen’s Gambit while also presenting a reliable weapon against the main Symmetrical English systems Learn More
  31. The Accelerated London with 2. Bf4 - Nigel Davies

    The Accelerated London with 2. Bf4 - Nigel Davies

    $33.95
    The Accelerated London System with 2.Bf4 offers some dynamic new possibilities for White that have been hitherto little explored. On this DVD Nigel Davies explores these fascinating plans which give the London System a lot of bite and offer scope for creativity. Learn More

    Nimzowitsch Defence - 1. e4 Nc6 - Andrew Martin

    $33.95
    Nimzo’s other defence, 1 e4 Nc6!?, is a fascinating opening which can lead to diverse types of positions. Black is not committed to anything; in fact he may encounter different pawn structures and varied development plans out of the variations that arise. On this all-new ChessBase DVD, FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin maps out an aggressive repertoire for Black, which is ideal for the club player. Learn More
