The English Defense - Dejan Bojkov

Product Code: WIN0377CB

Operating System: Microsoft Windows
Media: DVD

Product Description

In the 1970s a group of strong English players (Miles, Speelman, Keene above all and later Short) developed a slightly unusual opening starting after the moves 1.d4 e6 2.c4 b6. Just like in the Grünfeld or the Alekhine Defences, Black concedes the centre. However, rather than provoking pawn advances by an early development of the knights, Black wants instead to develop his bishops (most frequently to the squares b7 and b4). This approach contradicts the orthodox rule of development (knights before bishops) but is not it better to get some pieces out instead of spending a lot of tempi with the knight in provocation?! The original character of the play as well as the good preparation by the aforementioned grandmasters led to the recognition of this setup as the English Defence.

This opening, which is still very young and unexplored, has recently attracted some top players (Morozevich, Ponomariov, Mamedyarov) who have made good use of it in their games. In his latest DVD Dejan Bojkov of Bulgaria explores the line in detail and supplies you with all the information you require in order to be successful with the English Defence. Typical positional and tactical ideas are supported by plenty of theoretical information.

Video running time: 5 hours 9 min.

    The information explosion has led to a massive increase in opening theory. But how often do you win a game with a prepared line? What gives strong players the edge over their opponents is not some blockbuster novelty, but a deep understanding of the pawn structures to which their openings lead – an understanding that lasts into the middlegame and endgame, and is transferable between different openings with similar structures.
