    1. e4 Repertoire - Sam Collins - Grandmaster Lines Explained for Club Players

    Product Code: WIN0249CB

    Grandmaster lines explained for club players - Constructing an opening repertoire is one of the chess player's most difficult and time-consuming tasks. Turned off by masses of theory, many players shy away from critical lines and concentrate on trappy lines, "universal" systems, or variations which concede the advantage of the first move in order to get a playable position.

    In this DVD, Sam Collins offers another way. Discussing sound, aggressive lines, all with regular top-level support from GMs Tiviakov, Howell, Pavasovic and others, Collins breaks down each position into its key components and explains the core plans and ideas, together with enough theory to avoid any accidents and catch your opponents by surprise. With over 8 hours of top-class instruction, he helps lay the foundation for a repertoire to last for your whole chess career.

    The recommended repertoire contains the following recommendations:
    * 2. c3 against the Sicilian
    * Italian 4.c3 (5.d3) against Open Game
    * Tarrasch against the French
    * Panov Attack against the Caro-Kann

Indeed, the positions that arise from this opening can be either tactical or positional and are therefore suitable for chess players of all strengths.
