    Presented by International Master Bill Paschall for ChessLecture.com

     

    The English derives its name from the English (unofficial) World Champion, Howard Staunton (1843). The English has caught on in the twentieth century and is now recognized as a solid opening that may be used to reach both classical and hypermodern positions. Although many lines of the English have a distinct character, the opening is often used as a transpositional device in much the same way as 1.Nf3 – to avoid such highly regarded responses to 1.d4 as the Nimzo-Indian and Grunfeld defences – and is considered reliable and flexible.

     

    Content: 115 minutes of chess theory and discussion, with example games, over a series of 4 lectures.

     

    Members of ChessLecture.com rated this series a 4.27 out of 5

     

    Fans on ChessLecture.com said: Well, I watched part 1 today and enjoyed it so much that I watched part 2 immediately afterwards. Excellent lecture series and I amlooking forward to parts 3 and 4 which I will watch tomorrow.

    • 500 English Miniatures
      Author Bill Wall presents another in his popular series of miniature games - games completed in 25 moves or less - this time in the English Opening. His compilation includes games involving Grandmasters as well as wood pushers. These collections have proven to be valuable to players who wish to see typical mistakes and how they are punished. But many readers simply find these games very entertaining. Quick victories have always been popular for light reading - the thrust of a quick mating attack or win has a certain attraction. Bill Wall adds light notes to illustrate better lines, or the continuation when an early resignation leaves it not too obvious how material will be lost or mate will follow.

    • The English Hedgehog Defence - Lubomir Ftacnik
      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.
