  26. The English Hedgehog Defence - Lubomir Ftacnik

    The English Hedgehog Defence - Lubomir Ftacnik

    Regular Price: $36.95

    Our Price: $33.95

    This DVD by Lubomir Ftacnik deals with the Hedgehog structure and its phenomenal potential for generating active counterplay with Black. The appeal of elastic piece development around a dynamic pawn structure has helped to spread this concept to many other openings. The author has consciously limited his survey to the English Hedgehog with an emphasis on the challenges Black faces following the centralisation of White’s queen after 1.c4 c5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nc3 e6 4.g3 b6 5.Bg2 Bb7 6.0-0 Be7 7.d4 cxd4 8.Qxd4. While Black will have to survive various challenges to his position, as the aggressor enjoys a slight advantage in development and has great freedom of movement for his pieces, once the defender manages to fend off direct aggression, his prospects are usually quite promising.

  27. A Complete System for Black Against the English Opening - Chess Lecture - Volume 65

    A Complete System for Black Against the English Opening - Chess Lecture - Volume 65

    Our Price: $15.95
    The English derives its name from the English (unofficial) World Champion, Howard Staunton (1843). The English has caught on in the twentieth century and is now recognized as a solid opening that may be used to reach both classical and hypermodern positions. Although many lines of the English have a distinct character, the opening is often used as a transpositional device in much the same way as 1.Nf3 – to avoid such highly regarded responses to 1.d4 as the Nimzo-Indian and Grunfeld defences – and is considered reliable and flexible.

  28. Two Knights Defense - Chess Lecture - Volume 77

    Two Knights Defense - Chess Lecture - Volume 77

    Our Price: $19.95
    Bronstein once suggested that the term "defense" does not fit this strategy, and suggested the name "Chigorin Counterattack" as this line is adopted as Black by many aggressive players including Chigorin and Keres. Here Dana takes you through the strategy and how it plays out in real games. Learn More

    ABC of the English Opening - Lorin D'Costa

    Regular Price: $36.95

    Our Price: $33.95

    It is easy to understand why the English Opening is very popular at all levels, from club player up to Grandmaster level. The variations are less forcing and superior chess skill is required to outwit your opponents in the middlegame. In the English, white plays 1.c4 and fianchettos the white kings bishop to g2. Like all good chess openings, this fights for control of the centre and posts the ‘English Bishop’ on the long diagonal g2-a8. Many people view the opening as rather dull, but this is a misnomer - in fact, there are many sharp pawn sacrifices and attacking lines which have been found in recent times which give the opening some bite. The games in this DVD will provide with exactly that - the armoury to play the English Opening as white with confidence! Includes all of black's main responses to the English Opening 1.c4: Learn More
