    FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 21 - Dashing Danish
    Catalog Code: DVD0021FX

    A darling of great attacking players such as Marshall and Spielman, the Danish Gambit has recently been revived by GMs Hector and Tisdall. They have successfully challenged some of the old assessments of the line, and in this video, GM Nigel Davies tells you all you need to know to wield the sizzling Danish with deadly effect!

    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.

    As played by Nigel Short against Garry Kasparov - 1.d4 d6 2.Nf3 Bg4 is a relatively new system with some high-class adherents. Completely sound, it leads to dynamic and unbalanced middlegames. The defense has the considerable merit of sidestepping standard theory, and is a favorite of Anand and Speelman. GM James Plaskett analyses Black's best plans against all possible White set-ups.

    FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 151 - Crushing Black With The Deadly Ponziani
    Catalog Code: DVD0151FX

    Grandmasters have recently discovered that the Ponziani is a useful surprise weapon, and in 2012 and 2013 the opening has been played frequently at the highest level. Even Magnus Carlsen has used it! Therefore at club level, a good knowledge of the tactics and strategical objectives that White has after 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 c3!?, could easily rack up the wins. There is a lot less to know and learn about the Ponziani than any of the Ruy Lopez, the Italian Game or the Scotch, which are White's three main open-game weapons. Thus the opening has a very practical element to it.
