    e3 Poison
    A 21st Century Opening Repertoire
    Catalog Code: B0137QT

    When Axel Smith was chasing his final chess Grandmaster norm, he decided he needed a change in his White opening repertoire. Instead of his usual approach of memorizing many concrete moves to try to force an advantage, he would focus on pawn structures and typical plans. The result was a repertoire based on a set-up with the moves d4, Nf3, c4 and e3. It helped Axel Smith to the GM title, and led to the creation of e3 Poison.

    The King's Indian Defense - Move by Move
    Catalog Code: B0464EM

    he King's Indian is a hugely popular opening at all levels of chess. Rather than attempting to secure early equality, Black is fighting for the initiative from the very first moves. White is allowed to build up an early central advantage but Black relies on the middlegame, hoping that the central installations that White has constructed will become unwieldy and vulnerable to a devastating counterattack. In many variations, White pursues material or strategic gains but in return Black has tactical and attacking opportunities. The King's Indian Defence appeals to players who arrive at the board prepared for a fight.

    The Complete French Advance
    The Most Uncompromising Way to Attack the French Defence
    Catalog Code: B0189NIC

    Grandmaster Evgeny Sveshnikov has played the Advance Variation in countless games with excellent results and is, as former World Champion Anatoly Karpov puts it, ‘the world expert' in this variation. Together with his son, International Master Vladimir Sveshnikov, he has thoroughly updated and expanded his earlier investigations that he presented in his first book on the French Advance in 2003.The Sveshnikovs know that when you are teaching new patterns it is much more productive to use illustrative games than to show stand-alone, concrete variations. That is why they present many annotated grandmaster games in which they clearly explain the ideas and plans for both sides.

    First Steps - The Modern
    Catalog Code: B0455EM

    The Modern Defense is an important opening that can be played by Black against absolutely any White opening system. It is an ambitious, counterattacking weapon, favored by dynamic players. White is initially allowed to occupy the centre but Black plans to undermine this structure in the middle game with well-timed blows from the pieces and pawns. If Black gets it right then the white centre can be dramatically swept away. However, when it goes wrong, Black can be overrun.

Another topic is the ever growing in popularity The London System (2.Bf4 and 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Bf4)

    Each opening has its own specific features and strategies that need to be explored. In the variations of the Sicilian Defense, White often counts on material sacrifices for getting a short of long term initiative that has a fair chance to lead to a decisive attach. These typical sacrifices are the main topic of this work.

    Catalog Code: B0456EM

    The opponent who answers 1 e4 with an emphatic 1...c5 (The Sicilian Defence) is often looking for a fight. Such players can be highly theoretically prepared and itching to launch into their own pet variations after White has opted for the main lines with an early d2-d4. The Closed Sicilian is an ideal antidote to such aggression. In the Closed Sicilian an awareness of the strategies and plans is far more important than the simple memorising of variations. White's play is logical and the basic ideas are simple to master. However, do not be fooled into thinking the opening is without venom. The deliberate and slow burning attack that White often builds up has resulted in numerous fine attacking victories.

    Botvinnik and the Gruenfeld - Chess Lecture - Volume 167
    Presented by IM Bill Paschall
    Catalog Code: DVD0167CL

    Those who play the Gruenfeld defense knew that it could turn into a nightmare in an instant. The Gruenfeld steals the diagonal play from white because black’s dark bishop has a target in the center. Botvinnik went on to master the Gruenfeld and even wrote a book about it. Here IM Paschall takes us through Botvinniks games in the Gruenfeld as both black and white.

    Reti - A Repertoire for White - Victor Bologan
    Catalog Code: WIN0518CB

    The development of the knight to f3, followed by the attack on the centre with c4, was played by almost all great champions of the past. The most valuable investment into this opening was made by Richard Reti, who scored a couple of victories with it in the 1920s, but what would it look like without Capablanca’s games or Smyslov’s fine ideas? Nowadays the main protagonist of 1.Nf3 with White is Vladimir Kramnik, who has in my opinion the deepest strategical knowledge and understanding in chess. Especially the Reti is designed for those players who like strategy, manoeuvres and plans. Who like to avoid opening tons of theory, the jungle of forced lines. In this DVD, I tried to deal with all possible Black reactions against 1.Nf3. Naturally, there is much theory left outside of it, but a repertoire for White for sure is inside.

    Catalog Code: WIN0517CB

    The Four Knights has a rich and distinguished history. Like a fine wine, the Four Knights only improves with age, establishing itself as an extremely effective way of meeting 1...e5. On the outside this opening seems deceptively quiet, yet apparently natural moves can often lead to some devastating attacks. This DVD takes you through everything that you need to know in order to play this opening with confidence, starting with calm options and then moving on to the outrageous Belgrade opening.
