    E-DVD FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 150 - White Repertoire Against The French, Caro-Kann, and Alekhine
    Catalog Code: E-DVD0150FX

    Volume Three completes Martin's new "Winning Repertoire Series for White - 1.e4", which outlines a complete repertoire system for the first player, built around the King's Pawn opening. Here IM Martin demonstrates an easy to learn repertoire against the French, Caro-Kann and Alekhine Defense. After 1.e4 e6 we continue 2.d4 d5 3.exd5, having mastered the Exchange Variation; if 1.e4 c6 then 2.Nc3 d5 3.Nf3 (the Two Knights) and 1.e4 Nf6 meets the solid 2.e5 Nd5 3.d4 d6 4.Be2 with a position of iron.

    The Fierce McCutcheon - 2 DVDs - Chess Lecture - Volume 147
    Catalog Code: DVD0147CL

    The MacCutcheon Variation is one of the sharpest and most exciting variations in the French. In this variation, the second player ignores White's threat of e4-e5 and instead plays 4... Bb4. The main line continues: 5. e5 h6 6. Bd2 Bxc3 7. bxc3 Ne4 8. Qg4. At this point Black may play 8...g6, which weakens the kingside dark squares but keeps the option of castling queenside, or 8...Kf8.

    The Solid Rubinstein Variation
    Catalog Code: SWB0076RE

    This book is an eye-opener, and even top grandmasters might find that they have underestimated Black’s resources in important positions…The average tournament and online player will appreciate Langrock’s straightforward, no-nonsense style. He keeps the complexity of the analysis within bounds, and highlights relevant details without drifting into obscure page-long analytical byways. General themes are clearly presented within the context of illustrative games…The result is a book that covers a broad swath of material in a modest number of pages. I’m sure that you will be well-rewarded for its study, and come out with a useful new weapon in your chess arsenal.'' From International Master John Watson's Foreword

    Fighting the French
    A New Concept
    Catalog Code: B0074EU

    Nowadays the French Defence 1...e6 is one of the most popular openings in response to 1.e4. I'd like to suggest a new concept of combating it. White plays 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 and then deploys his pieces according to the scheme Ngf3, Bd3, c3, 0-0, against almost anything that Black may play. This will usually lead to exchanges in the centre and the appearance of an isolated queen's pawn for White.
