    FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 76 - The Hippo
    Catalog Code: DVD0076FX

    M Andrew Martin, author of the book Hippopotamus Rises, brings you an original and provocative opening for Black. He will take you through a series of games teaching you the ideas behind the opening for both Black and White. In this system, Black meets all of White's responses with 1...b6 followed by a timely g6. The Hippopotamus offers everyone a chance to play chess in an original and interesting way. Black plays his pawns up to the third rank (lying low in the water like the hippopotamus himself), perhaps fianchettoes both Bishops and bides his time, waiting for the right moment to strike.

    1.Nf3 - a variable Repertoire for White is the name for a comprehensive opening system strategy based on security and choice.

This repertoire DVD is the fruit of a lifetime's experience, as the author Lubomir Ftacnik uses it actively in his practice. The system gives all White players the chance to fine-tune the level of exposure and risk

    Catalog Code: SWB0371EM

    The Nimzo-Larsen Attack is an ideal opening choice for players keen to avoid mainline theory but still wanting to set their opponents problems from the outset. In the Nimzo-Larsen, White begins 1 b3 and then develops in hypermodern fashion – planning to undermine any central structures Black dares to erect. A key attraction of the Nimzo-Larsen is that White can steer the game into either sharp play or elaborate strategic battles. In this book, International Master Cyrus Lakdawala invites you to join him in examining the many different variations of the Nimzo-Larsen. Lakdawala studies the typical plans and tactics for both sides, offers repertoire options for White, provides answers to all the key questions and tells you everything you need to know about playing the Nimzo-Larsen Attack.
