    The Reliable Petroff - An Evergreen Elite Choice - Daniel Fernandez
    Catalog Code: WIN0545CB

    The Petroff (or Russian) Defence which is characterised by the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 has been popular at the highest levels for many years and enjoys the reputation of being an extremely solid defence. As with many openings favoured by the world elite, there is a sharp contrast between the sidelines (in which understanding plays the most critical role) and the theoretical battleground of the main lines where experience and knowledge of plans are needed, but also a high degree of concrete knowledge. This DVD aims to present this knowledge in a structured way, so that players can pick exactly what they need. This is interspersed with discussions of structural themes and annotated games. Two particular structures are discussed in great detail.

    The Baffling 2.b3 Sicilian - Lawrence Trent
    Catalog Code: WIN0546CB

    There are a number of good Anti-Sicilian options out there, however I believe the 2.b3 Sicilian to be one of the most overlooked and underrated systems available to White. This modest move came back to the fore as a legitimate Anti-Sicilian weapon when none other than Vladimir Kramnik used it in a few games to frustrate his Sicilian diehard opponents.

    The Vienna Variation - Yannick Pelletier
    A Reliable and Ambitious Weapon Against 1.d4
    Catalog Code: WIN0543CB

    The Vienna Variation is a particular and independent system of the Queen’s Gambit. It arises after 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 dxc4, when black’s capture on move 4 is strongly reminiscent of the Queen’s Gambit Accepted. On this DVD, GM Yannick Pelletier offers you a complete repertoire in the Vienna, while covering the numerous possible deviations by White. He also analyses thematic games which illustrate the most important middlegame ideas.

    Smash the Sicilian with the Smith-Morra Gambit - Michael Rahal
    Catalog Code: WIN0544CB

    The Smith-Morra Gambit (1.e4 c5 2.d4!) is a great attacking weapon against the popular Sicilian Defence. On move two White sacrifices a pawn for fast development and good attacking chances, and Black can easily fall into one of the many devious opening traps. In this 4+ hour DVD International Master Michael Rahal uses model attacking games to illustrate the main ideas behind White’s aggressive approach.

    Meeting the Gambits - Gambits after 1.d4 - Andrew Martin - Volume 2
    Catalog Code: WIN0541CB

    When facing gambits the most important thing is not to panic, a feeling usually induced by lack of knowledge. Keep calm, learn the antidotes and face the aggression with renewed confidence.

On this DVD the Russian grandmaster and top women player Nadezhda Kosintseva reveals the secrets of her favourite opening. Kosintseva has played the Accelerated Dragon for many years and achieved a lot of success with it. You too can accelerate your opening – with this complete repertoire for Black against 1.e4!

    Catalog Code: WIN0537CB

    The French Defence is the sharpest opening setup against 1.e4. With his first two moves, e6 and d5, Black tries to provoke the advance e4-e5. This closes the centre and gives Black the opportunity to get active play on both wings. 

    GM Yannick Pelletier is a specialist of this opening, and believes that the most efficient way to understand its ideas, plans, and typical structures is to study classical lines. He offers you a repertoire that is based on well-established lines that have been tried and tested for decades and that have proven their validity.

This hyper-aggressive system, which immediately sets out to destabilize White’s position, had a renaissance in the mid-2000s when none other than GM Alexander Morozevich revitalised the opening with a number of fresh ideas and excellent results. While it has since gone "out of fashion", IM Lawrence Trent discussed a number of extremely dangerous Theoretical Novelties which will truly put the Albin Counter-Gambit back on the map.

    When we are kids we are mostly taught to play 1.e4, and the first mate we see is the one with Bc4, Qh5 and Qxf7++. It looks like chess theory is turning back to its roots when the move 3.Bc4 was much more popular than 3.Bb5. Nowadays all top tournaments are full of Italian games, and it proves much more difficult for Black to achieve equality there than in some Marshall or Berlin variation of the Ruy Lopez. In the Italian, the focus of the battle is transposed from the opening to the middle game which requires from both sides good knowledge of typical plans and ideas - and thus a totally new concept of opening preparation which is exactly what you find on the DVD! In the actual DVD Bologan covered all answers by Black against 3.Bc4, especially 3...Bc5, presenting all relevant possibilities for White. It is full of positional ideas and plans, and it it will definitely raise your chess understanding to the highest standards.

    Catalog Code: E-WIN0533CB

    In the modern game, a player has to be ready to play almost any opening variation at short notice. The plan is to interrupt the preparation of the opponent at every turn. A knowledge of dynamic and slightly unusual lines could well score many,many points for the resourceful player. The Kveinys Variation : 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 e6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Qb6! is surprisingly little-played, yet gives Black excellent chances and on this new ChessBase DVD, Andrew Martin explains how the system works. For the Master, we have a surprise weapon which players of the calibre of Svidler, Judit Polgar and Kveinys have used to defeat tough opposition. For the club player, where preparation is sketchy, we have a line which asks questions of the opponent right at the beginning of the game and creates immediate pressure on White to find good moves. That is the way to win! Perhaps the Kveinys variation will become more popular in the future. It does not deserve to be a comparatively rare sideline.
