  1. The English Opening - Simon WIlliams - VOL. 2

    The English Opening - Simon WIlliams - VOL. 2

    $33.95
    This English Opening was my first love and this was the opening that I used to progress from the rank amateur player to 2400+ International Master. I will now share my secrets of this opening with you, in the hope that the English Opening can help you improve in a similar way. My main teaching method behind this set of two DVDs is to teach you some simple yet effective set ups, without the need to rely on memorising numerous complicated variations. I have explained what you are trying to achieve with each move and set up, then you will know what plans to put into motion in the middlegame and endgame. Learn More

  3. POWER PLAY - A Repertoire for Black with the French Defense - Daniel King - VOLUME 22

    POWER PLAY - A Repertoire for Black with the French Defense - Daniel King - VOLUME 22

    $33.95
    The French Defence is one of the most reliable openings against 1 e4. The solid central pawn chain protects Black’s king and provides the basis for counter-attacks on both wings. On this DVD Grandmaster Daniel King offers you a repertoire for Black with the French. Based around ten stem games, all White’s major lines against the French are covered. The French Defence is one of the most flexible of openings. This DVD explores different systems so that you can always keep your opponent guessing as to your choice. Learn More
  4. Original and Aggressive - 1.. b6 for Practical Players - Nigel Davies

    Original and Aggressive - 1.. b6 for Practical Players - Nigel Davies

    $33.95
    The Owens Defence, with 1...b6, is part of a nexus of systems that are both complex and little explored, offering practical players the opportunity to get out of the book early on and pose new and difficult problems. Transpositions into other openings and structures are common, making it an ideal weapon for playing to win as Black against booked up opposition. On this DVD Nigel Davies shows how ...b6 lines can be used to enhance an existing French Defence repertoire (for example with 1.d4 e6 2.c4 b6!?) and provide answers to 1.Nf3 and 1.c4. He also shows how 1...b6 can be used as a defence against 1.e4, for players who want to play for a win and do not mind taking risks. Learn More
  5. Master Class - Anatoly Karpov

    Master Class - Anatoly Karpov

    $33.95
    On this DVD, a team of experts looks closely at the secrets of World Champion Karpov’s games. In more than 7 hours of video, the authors examine four essential aspects of Karpov’s superb play. Niclas Huschenbeth takes a look at Karpov’s openings. Our tactics expert Oliver Reeh tests your skills with interactive exercises, challenging you to find Karpov’s brilliant moves. Mihail Marin sees in Karpov’s play great similarities to Magnus Carlsen: by the time the opponent understands what is happening, it is already too late. For endgame expert Dr. Karsten Müller, Anatoly Karpov is “a living legend”. For him, Karpov has “an incredible feeling for the coordination and harmony of his pieces”, something which also shows in his endgames. Learn More
  6. King's Indian - A Modern Approach - Victor Bologan

    King's Indian - A Modern Approach - Victor Bologan

    $33.95
    Author Victor Bologan about his DVD: “If chess players are in Iceland, they usually pay tribute to the genius of Bobby Fischer, the 11th World Champion, by visiting his grave in Selfoss in Reykjavik. With this DVD I also want to express my gratitude to Fischer: for his great contribution to chess in general and because he helped to make the King’s Indian more popular in particular. As a junior, when I was ten years old, my coach advised me to study the openings of Fischer and I discovered the King’s Indian. Later I learned about the different approaches Black has in the King’s Indian. He can keep his structure flexible and put his pawns on d6 and c6; he can play the sharp and principled Nc6 in the classical lines and in some sidelines he can sacrifice a pawn with …b5 as in the Benko. Learn More
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. A Gambit Guide through the Open Game - Erwin L'Ami - Volume 2

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

    $33.95

  11. 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
  12. Nimzowitsch Defence - 1. e4 Nc6 - Andrew Martin

    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

    The Chess Player's Mating Guide - The King in the Centre - VOL. 1 - IM Robert Ris

    $33.95
    In this first volume of the new Mating Guide series, the emphasis will be on how to exploit a vulnerably placed king in the centre. With 10 chapters, 20 illustrative games and key themes including a lead in development, preventing castling, the open e-file and different kinds of sacrifices, this DVD will show you everything you need to know to master mid-board showdowns. The level of the content means it is relevant to both beginners as well as master level players - as both elementary examples (also from my own practice) as well as classical attacking games by elite grandmasters are analysed in detail. Learn More
  16. Winning Against the Classical Slav - Mihail Marin

    Winning Against the Classical Slav - Mihail Marin

    $33.95
    This DVD offers White a complete repertoire against the classical Slav, a popular opening, in which Black can choose from a wide range of plans. In the Slav White often has more space but to turn this into an advantage he needs to know the typical strategic and tactical motifs of the opening and has to develop a feeling for the nuances of the position. Learn More
  17. Typical Mistakes by 1800-2000 Players - Nicholas Pert

    Typical Mistakes by 1800-2000 Players - Nicholas Pert

    $33.95
    GM Nicholas Pert about his DVD: “After the success of my previous DVD Typical mistakes by 1600-1900 players I decided to produce a follow up DVD aimed at players of a slightly higher level. The examples all come from games played by players with a rating between 1800 and 2100. This DVD offers slightly more complex material than the previous DVD, and will hopefully provide an insight into what I believe are the main errors which stop players of this level to be more successful." Learn More
  18. The Complex Najdorf - A Complete Repertoire for Black - GM Victor Bologan

    The Complex Najdorf - A Complete Repertoire for Black - GM Victor Bologan

    $33.95
    When choosing an opening repertoire, it is common to consider two types of variations. One is usually a solid opening, like 1...e5 against 1.e4, with plenty of strategical ideas and quiet paths of play. However, there are of course days when you want to play for a win with Black, when you want to bear down on your opponent’s position with a potentially crushing attack. The Najdorf is perfect for just such occasions – and it’s no coincidence that Garry Kasparov played it the most out of all the variations in the Sicilian – the opening served him well throughout his brilliant career. I myself have played it with both colours, but even I discover more to its endless depths every day! Strategy, combinations, attack and defence, sacrifices and marvelous manoeuvres – exciting chess is all about the Najdorf! Learn More
  19. Beat the Queen's Indian - The Modern Fianchetto Line - GM Simon Williams

    Beat the Queen's Indian - The Modern Fianchetto Line - GM Simon Williams

    $33.95
    This DVD is packed full of new, exciting and novel ideas; based on a repertoire starting with the moves 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nf3 with g3! to follow. Currently this is the most testing way to challenge players who prefer the Nimzo. White develops sensibly - but has aggressive intentions in mind! On this DVD, I will tell you everything you need to know to play this way as White, but the DVD will also be of interest to players who are unsure what to do against 3 Nf3 - giving you a repertoire with Black as well Learn More
  20. A Black Repertoire Against Offbeat Openings - GM Nicholas Pert

    A Black Repertoire Against Offbeat Openings - GM Nicholas Pert

    $33.95
    Many club players have their favourite pet opening variations which aren’t necessarily main lines. It’s important to know how to handle these variations as your opponent will likely know his systems well. In this DVD I provide a detailed Black repetoire against many of these Offbeat Opening choices. The lines I have covered include Pseudo – Trompowsky (1.d4 d5 2. Bg5), London Systems (1.d4 with an early Bf4), Torre Attack (1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 e6 and 3. Bg5), Veresov (1.d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 3. Bg5), Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (1.d4 d5 2. e4), Kings Indian Attack (1.Nf3 2.g3 3. Bg2), 1.b4, 1.b3, 1.f4, 1.g3 and 1.g4. Learn More
