  3. 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

  6. 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
  7. 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

(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

    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
  10. 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.

  11. 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
  12. The Chess Player's Mating Guide - Weakened Kingside - Robert Ris - Vol. 2

    The Chess Player's Mating Guide - Weakened Kingside - Robert Ris - Vol. 2

    $33.95
    In the second volume of the Chess Player's Mating Guide, the host pays particular attention to the castled king and in particular on ways of exploiting the weakened kingside. Several well-known themes, pawn formations and other attacking weapons are covered in 8 chapters with the goal to challenge the viewer determining and exploiting the weaknesses. IM Robert Ris has made an interesting selection of famous games as well as games from his own practice to demonstrate the typical ideas exploiting the weaknesses in the pawn formation in front of the castled king. The selected material is a good warm-up for the exercises which are presented at the end to test your knowledge on this topic. By then you at least will have the confidence to claim you have become a dangerous attacking player as Tal, Alekhine, Fischer or any of your other favorites. Watch, learn & enjoy! Learn More
  13. Reti - A Repertoire for White - Victor Bologan

    Reti - A Repertoire for White - Victor Bologan

    $33.95
    The development of the knight to f3, followed by the attack on the centre with c4, was played by almost all great champions of the past. The most valuable investment into this opening was made by Richard Reti, who scored a couple of victories with it in the 1920s, but what would it look like without Capablanca’s games or Smyslov’s fine ideas? Nowadays the main protagonist of 1.Nf3 with White is Vladimir Kramnik, who has in my opinion the deepest strategical knowledge and understanding in chess. Especially the Reti is designed for those players who like strategy, manoeuvres and plans. Who like to avoid opening tons of theory, the jungle of forced lines. In this DVD, I tried to deal with all possible Black reactions against 1.Nf3. Naturally, there is much theory left outside of it, but a repertoire for White for sure is inside. Learn More
  14. The Blumenfeld Gambit - A Sharp Weapon in the Benoni - Andrew Martin

    The Blumenfeld Gambit - A Sharp Weapon in the Benoni - Andrew Martin

    $33.95
    It was back in the 1920s that the Russian master Benjamin Blumenfeld invented his famous gambit 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 c5 4.d5 b5!?, and to the present day the opening retains great popularity. Black plays for the initiative and the win from the word go. It’s all about the centre. Who will be the first to dominate this important area of the board? A fierce, immediate fight breaks out, and if either player does not know what to do, a crushing defeat could be the result. This opening is ideal for club and tournament players Learn More
  15. POWER PLAY - Popular Queen's Pawn Openings - A Repertoire for Black - Daniel King - VOLUME 25

    POWER PLAY - Popular Queen's Pawn Openings - A Repertoire for Black - Daniel King - VOLUME 25

    $33.95
    Openings such as the London System and the Trompowsky, once considered side lines, are now just as common in the professional game as at club level. On this DVD, Grandmaster Daniel King presents a repertoire for Black allowing you to face these systems with confidence. The aim of these recommendations is to come out of the opening with sound development, a sound pawn structure, a secure king, and a dynamic position that gives winning chances Learn More
  16. The Fashionable Caro-Kann - Vol 2 - Advance Variation 3. e5 Bf5 - Vidit Gujrathi

    The Fashionable Caro-Kann - Vol 2 - Advance Variation 3. e5 Bf5 - Vidit Gujrathi

    $33.95
    The Caro Kann is a very tricky opening. Black’s play is based on controlling and fighting for key light squares. I have analyzed the new trends carefully and found some new ideas for Black. The dynamic play based on a strong strategic foundation has always fascinated me, and in these DVDs I have suggested the lines which I personally prefer and employ in practice. Recently at the World Rapid and Blitz Championships at Qatar I used many of them with great success, managing to score important wins over top GMs Vachier Lagrave, Radjabov, Jobava and drawing against Vishy Anand.

    Open Games with ...Bc5 - Sam Collins

    $33.95
    Sam Collins has designed a repertoire based on systems with …Bc5 after 1.e4 e5. Each of these lines (built around 3…Bc5 against the Ruy Lopez and the Italian, the Spanish Four Knights with 4…Bc5, 3…Bb4+ 4.c3 Bc5 against the Scotch, and 2…Bc5 against the King’s Gambit) share common aspirations of developing the bishop actively outside the pawn chain, fighting for control of the key d4-square and ultimately supporting attacking ideas on the kingside.

  23. The Modern Pirc - Victor Bologan

    The Modern Pirc - Victor Bologan

    $33.95
    Viktor Bologan has played the Pirc all his life and explains why he likes this opening: “Strong Grandmasters, International Masters or amateurs often ask me what they should play with Black against 1.e4 if they want to play for a win. Sometimes I say ‘Just play your opening and play it good’ but sometimes you need to or want to get your opponent out of his comfort zone, out of his preparation. This often happens in open tournaments where you have to play for a win with both colors. I have played the Modern Pirc all my life and it has brought me a lot of success. Learn More

    $33.95
    On this DVD, we will look at a simple-to-learn yet surprisingly effective system that White can play after 1 d4 d5. In all cases White will play 2 c4 - and if given the chance, 3 cxd5!

The main ideas and concepts are thoroughly explained by taking a detailed look at how the best players in the world handle this system. Learn More

    The Ruy Lopez Breyer Variation - Pavel Eljanov

    $33.95
    The Spanish Opening is often called the ''Queen of Openings''. If you master this opening, you understand a lot about chess.
