    Hosted by: Grandmaster Raymond Keene
    Running Time: Over 90 Minutes

    Ray Keenes's chess DVDs are renowned for their excellent archival footage. Prelude to Armageddon: Volumes includes coverage of the critical games as well as sensational archival footage of leading Grandmasters and champions, many of whom are no longer with us.

    Before their titanic struggle began in late 1984 which resulted in no fewer than five world championship duels over almost seven years, Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov both participated in key events in London.

    Kasparov had to overcome Viktor Korchnoi in order to challenge Karpov for the supreme title, while Karpov had to prove himself in a tournament of elite Grandmasters as the prelude to his title defense against the young genius from Baku.

    There is fabulous archival footage of the greats such as Kasparov, Karpov, Korchnoi, Smyslov, Ribli, Najdorf, Gligoric, Robert Byrne, Miles, Mestel, Speelman, Timman as well as additionally commentary by Bob Wade OBE.

      On this DVD, Grandmaster Roman and Rybka have turned opening theory upside down and overturned the well-established move order for the Giuoco Pian (over 100 years old) and claim a sizeable advantage for white! It's truly amazing to see how a single move that 4 different grandmasters (including World Champion Anatoly Karpov} considered Harmless is in-fact completely dominating and leading to a superior game for White.

    • FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 56 - Win with 1...d6 Part 1
      The first of two videos on systems with 1...d6, this one based on the flexible Czech System (1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 c6).

      The Czech System introduces a fascinating area of opening play, where with well-timed counter-measures Black aims to destabilize the whole White set-up. The Czech is much less susceptible to direct attack than a regular Pirc Defense.

      Part 1: Pseudo-Austrian 4.f4
      Part 2: Aggressive Lines 4.Be3/4.Bg5/4.f3
      Part 3: Classical 4.Nf3

    • The Queen's Gambit and Friends - 2 DVDs - Chess Lecture - Volume 95
      By FM Dennis Monokroussos
      The Queen's Gambit is one of the oldest known chess openings. In early modern chess, queen pawn openings were not in fashion, and the Queen's Gambit did not become common until the 1873 tournament in Vienna. As the appreciation for positional play increased and was developed by both Steinitz and Tarrasch the Queen's Gambit grew more popular. The Queen's Gambit is still frequently played and it remains an important part of many grandmasters opening repertoires.
