  5. The 4... Nf6 Caro-Kann - Nigel Davies

    The 4... Nf6 Caro-Kann - Nigel Davies

    $33.95
    The dynamic 4...Nf6 line of the Caro-Kann has been unfashionable in recent years whilst the theory on 4...Bf5 and 4...Nd7 now extends well into the middle game. 4…Nf6 therefore offers a golden opportunity for Caro-Kann players to throw their opponents on their own resources – and here even top Grandmasters can go wrong. On this DVD Nigel Davies examines both the Bronstein-Larsen (5.Nxf6+ gxf6) and the Tartakower (5.Nxf6+ exf6) systems. Learn More

  10. Bf4 in the Queen's Gambit and the Exchange Slav

    Bf4 in the Queen's Gambit and the Exchange Slav

    $29.95

    Alexey Dreev analyses many different ways for White to fight for the opening advantage in two modern schemes, in the Slav Defense and in the Queen's Gambit Declined. His choice in the Slav Defense is the exchange variation, which is becoming more and more popular among the average level chess players, as well as at top level. It looked like Black could equalize, but lately White often managed to create problems for Black. By playing 3.cxd5, after the moves 1 d4 d5 2.c4 c6, White tries to obtain an advantage, but also avoids the main lines of the Slav Defense, which may arise following 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 dxc4.

    The Fierce McCutcheon - 2 DVDs - Chess Lecture - Volume 147

    $49.95
    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.
