    Catalog Code: E-DVD0114CL

    The Panov–Botvinnik Attack begins with the move 4.c4. It is named after Vasily Panov and the world champion Mikhail Botvinnik.

Here Bill shows you a system that has become the standard for experienced players.

    E-DVD Fundamentals of Isolated Queen Pawn Positions - Chess Lecture - Volume 64
    Catalog Code: E-DVD0064CL

    An isolated pawn or “isolani” is a pawn which has no friendly pawn on an adjacent file. Isolated pawns are usually thought of as a weakness because they cannot be protected by other pawns. Many textbook openings create at least one isolated pawn but are nevertheless accepted as orthodox because of the advantages they create. With an isolated pawn you can have improved development and associated opportunities for counter play that offset or even outweigh the weaknesses associated with the pawn's isolation.

    The Queen's Gambit is one of the oldest known chess openings.
