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

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

    $33.95
    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. The Sicilian Tajmanov-Scheveningen - Alejandro Ramirez

    The Sicilian Tajmanov-Scheveningen - Alejandro Ramirez

    $33.95
    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. Learn More
  5. MASTER CLASS - Alexander Alekhine - VOL. 3

    MASTER CLASS - Alexander Alekhine - VOL. 3

    $33.95
    Alexander Alekhine, the fourth World Champion, played many fantastic attacking games and to this day enjoys the reputation of being an attacking genius. But ever since Alekhine won the World Championship match against Capablanca in Buenos Aires 1927 the chess world could see that the Russian-born Alekhine – who immigrated to France in 1921 – also handled technical positions excellently. But his success against Capablanca was still a surprise because the Cuban was considered to be virtually unbeatable. Learn More
  6. A World Champions Repertoire Against The Queen's Gambit Declined - Robert Ris

    A World Champions Repertoire Against The Queen's Gambit Declined - Robert Ris

    $33.95
    Back in the 1950s, it was Botvinnik who popularised the Exchange Variation of the Queen’s Gambit Declined. The setup, which involves putting the knight on e2 in combination with castling kingside, was revolutionary at that time. Until then, White had either placed his knight on f3 with the idea of s tarting a minority attack on the queenside, or on e2, where it was normally associated with the intention of castling queenside and preparing a pawn storm against the Black King. K asparov, Botvinnik’s pupil, would soon follow in his mentor’s footsteps, bringing yet further refinements to this flexible system. Learn More
  7. Queen's Gambit Declined - D'Costa & Murphy

    Queen's Gambit Declined - D'Costa & Murphy

    $30.95
    The Queens Gambit Declined (known as the ‘QGD’) is the “Mr. Reliable” of responses to 1.d4. A favourite of many of the world champions, both past and present, its reputation has never been called into question. Learn More
  8. The Modern Grand Prix Attack - Lawrence Trent

    The Modern Grand Prix Attack - Lawrence Trent

    $30.95
    The Grand Prix Attack is one of White’s most enterprising weapons against the Sicilian Defence, and a favourite among club players and Grandmasters alike. This is an opening that must be treated with both caution and respect. Over the past few years Grandmaster Gawain Jones, arguably the world’s leading expert on the variation, has used the Grand Prix Attack to defeat a number of world class opponents, which demonstrates that underestimating its potential can cause casualties even at the highest level. Learn More
  9. FRITZ TRAINER  - A Black Repertoire against the Two Knights - Robert Ris

    FRITZ TRAINER - A Black Repertoire against the Two Knights - Robert Ris

    $33.95
    With the Traxler Variation (4.Ng5 Bc5!?) spearheading their repertoire, any player should look forward to fighting for the initiative against the Two Knights with Black. Its slightly dubious reputation shouldn’t put you off from buying this DVD - as the author clearly demonstrates - a great number of spectacular resources for Black are on show, supported by original analysis. Learn More

  15. How to Play the Sicilian Defence! - Elisabeth Pahtz

    How to Play the Sicilian Defence! - Elisabeth Pahtz

    $30.95
    The Sicilian Defense is an old but nevertheless very modern opening. The continuous stream of new ideas in the Sicilian makes 1..c5 the most popular answer to 1.e4. On this DVD I do give an introduction to the most important Sicilian systems. However, the focus lies not on memorizing variations. Instead, I present some of my own games to show typical plans and strategies and to indicate typical and important tactical motifs, which can be used in various systems. Learn More
  16. Mating Patterns - Maurice Ashley

  17. Crushing Isolated Queen's Pawn Tactics - Robert Ris

    Crushing Isolated Queen's Pawn Tactics - Robert Ris

    $33.95
    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
  18. Tactic Toolbox Benoni - Mihail Marin

    Tactic Toolbox Benoni - Mihail Marin

    $33.95

Learn More
  19. First Steps in Pawn Structures - Andrew Martin

    First Steps in Pawn Structures - Andrew Martin

    $30.95
    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
  20. Tactic Toolbox Scheveningen - Lubomir Ftacnik

    $30.95
    Lubomir Ftacnik complements his popular Scheveningen DVD with fresh material for training tactical themes. The world’s most popular opening, the Sicilian defense (played in more than 50% of all games!) rises and falls with attack, fantasy and combinations. The ability to spot a tactical opportunity, calculate variations and choose the best line decides the game in sharp Sicilian positions and, even on its own, is a skill worth having. Learn More
  21. Improve Your Chess Tactics with Tania Sachdev

    Improve Your Chess Tactics with Tania Sachdev

    $30.95
    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
  22. Tactic Toolbox Grunfeld - Michal Krasenkow

    Tactic Toolbox Grunfeld - Michal Krasenkow

    $33.95
    If you want to know an opening, you should understand its typical positional ideas and plans. It is also good to remember variations. But this is not enough. You should also know the typical tactical motifs or your opening. This trio of strategy, variations, and tactics forms a conscious and subconscious image in the mind and helps you to find the right moves. The Grünfeld Defense is an active opening, which often leads to sharp, double-edged play, and tense tactical fights. Therefore the tactical part of the Grünfeld-image is extremely important and should be steadily developed. The most effective, timeproven way to develop tactical abilities, imagination, and the ability to calculate variations, is practice. Poets say, “No day without a line”, aspiring chessplayers should say “No day without tactical exercise”. Learn More
  23. The Wicked Veresov Attack - Andrew Martin

    The Wicked Veresov Attack - Andrew Martin

    $30.95
    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
  24. Play the Pirc Like a Grandmaster - Positional Lines - Mihail Marin - VOL. 1

    Play the Pirc Like a Grandmaster - Positional Lines - Mihail Marin - VOL. 1

    $33.95
    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. Learn More

When playing the Pirc one must know what to do against White‘s attacking systems. Learn More
  26. The Modern Scotch Opening - Parimarjan Negi

    The Modern Scotch Opening - Parimarjan Negi

    $33.95
    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

    CHESS ENDGAMES - Rook Against Knight - Karsten Mueller - VOLUME 12
