    There are few names which, like that of Alexei Shirov, can be associated with fantastically imaginative and tactically influenced play. Now the Latvian grandmaster is presenting a DVD on precisely that element of the game of chess. And one that is completely based on his own games. The first series of examples deals with simple tactics, in which mate often has its part to play. In the passing you will learn a lot of details about Shirov’s career and also his evaluation of other players. By the second series it is not only tactics which are being discussed, but also attacking play in its entirety. Yet here too the author continues to offer you the opportunity to find for yourself a move or a short combination. In chapters 5 and 6 he demonstrates complex attacks. That is to a great extent the key discipline: tactics embedded in positional play or seen from the opposite point of view, positional play which includes tactical elements. So this DVD goes far beyond pure tactics and is perfectly suited to advanced players who wish to develop their understanding of the game.

    • Modern Themes in the Benoni - 2 DVDs - Chess Lecture - Volume 66
      The Modern Benoni was invented in 1927 by Frank Marshall at the New York Chess Tournament. Marshall played it twice, first for a draw against Capablanca, and again later losing to Aron Nimzowitch whom labeled the Modern Benoni an "unfortunate extravagance" in his annotations. In the 1950s interest in the system revived, as the King's Indian Defense gained in popularity among Soviet players and their investigations branched into related opening systems such as the Benoni. The imbalance inherent in the pawn structure of the Modern Benoni and the counter-chances this implies for Black appeals to aggressive players.
