    ABC of the English Opening - Lorin D'Costa
    A Complete Repertoire for White
    Catalog Code: WIN0439CB

    It is easy to understand why the English Opening is very popular at all levels, from club player up to Grandmaster level. The variations are less forcing and superior chess skill is required to outwit your opponents in the middlegame. In the English, white plays 1.c4 and fianchettos the white kings bishop to g2. Like all good chess openings, this fights for control of the centre and posts the ‘English Bishop’ on the long diagonal g2-a8. Many people view the opening as rather dull, but this is a misnomer - in fact, there are many sharp pawn sacrifices and attacking lines which have been found in recent times which give the opening some bite. The games in this DVD will provide with exactly that - the armoury to play the English Opening as white with confidence! Includes all of black's main responses to the English Opening 1.c4:

    The English Hedgehog Defence - Lubomir Ftacnik
    Catalog Code: WIN0390CB

    This DVD by Lubomir Ftacnik deals with the Hedgehog structure and its phenomenal potential for generating active counterplay with Black. The appeal of elastic piece development around a dynamic pawn structure has helped to spread this concept to many other openings. The author has consciously limited his survey to the English Hedgehog with an emphasis on the challenges Black faces following the centralisation of White’s queen after 1.c4 c5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Nc3 e6 4.g3 b6 5.Bg2 Bb7 6.0-0 Be7 7.d4 cxd4 8.Qxd4. While Black will have to survive various challenges to his position, as the aggressor enjoys a slight advantage in development and has great freedom of movement for his pieces, once the defender manages to fend off direct aggression, his prospects are usually quite promising.
