    Product Description

    The Czech Benoni has never quite made it to the top of the charts as a reply to 1 d4. Perhaps it's the very nature of blocked central positions which put people off. Thus after 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 c5 3. d5 e5 the first impression is that the Black position could become rather passive. In fact it's not difficult to find excellent games by White where he stifles all the life out of Black's game. Repertoire books are similarly pessimistic about Black's chances. But it seems to me that the best Black wins have been forgotten and I'm in good company here, with players of the calibre of Nisipeanu, Ivan Sokolov, Milidanovic taking a fresh look at the opening and using the Czech Benoni with success in recent games. Thus by playing 3...e5, you angle the game into a path of YOUR choosing, which is very much the modern style and very difficult to do with Black. We are going to see some fascinating chess here and by the end of the DVD I hope to have convinced you that the Czech Benoni is well-worth playing. Video playing time: 4 h. 

    Martin is a professional chess teacher and coach in England (currently teaching at eight schools) and is the chief coach of the English national Junior squad (ages 8-18). He was coach to four World Youth Champions and a host of English national junior champions - clearly Martin understands how to communicate chess knowledge to his students with great success and outstanding results!
