    Trompowsky for the Attacking Player - Timur Gareyev
    Catalog Code: WIN0494CB

    Grandmaster and "Blindfold King" Timur Gareyev is known for his creative attacking chess. On his new DVD he recommends to play the Trompowsky! (1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5) The Trompowsky is an opening outside of conventional wisdom. Create challenges and make your opponent solve problems early on.

    Nimzowitsch Defence - 1. e4 Nc6 - Andrew Martin
    Catalog Code: WIN0485CB

    Nimzo’s other defence, 1 e4 Nc6!?, is a fascinating opening which can lead to diverse types of positions. Black is not committed to anything; in fact he may encounter different pawn structures and varied development plans out of the variations that arise. On this all-new ChessBase DVD, FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin maps out an aggressive repertoire for Black, which is ideal for the club player.

    A Black Repertoire Against Offbeat Openings - GM Nicholas Pert
    Catalog Code: WIN0482CB

    Many club players have their favourite pet opening variations which aren’t necessarily main lines. It’s important to know how to handle these variations as your opponent will likely know his systems well. In this DVD I provide a detailed Black repetoire against many of these Offbeat Opening choices. The lines I have covered include Pseudo – Trompowsky (1.d4 d5 2. Bg5), London Systems (1.d4 with an early Bf4), Torre Attack (1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 e6 and 3. Bg5), Veresov (1.d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 3. Bg5), Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (1.d4 d5 2. e4), Kings Indian Attack (1.Nf3 2.g3 3. Bg2), 1.b4, 1.b3, 1.f4, 1.g3 and 1.g4.

    Original and Aggressive - 1.. b6 for Practical Players - Nigel Davies
    Catalog Code: WIN0461CB

    The Owens Defence, with 1...b6, is part of a nexus of systems that are both complex and little explored, offering practical players the opportunity to get out of the book early on and pose new and difficult problems. Transpositions into other openings and structures are common, making it an ideal weapon for playing to win as Black against booked up opposition. On this DVD Nigel Davies shows how ...b6 lines can be used to enhance an existing French Defence repertoire (for example with 1.d4 e6 2.c4 b6!?) and provide answers to 1.Nf3 and 1.c4. He also shows how 1...b6 can be used as a defence against 1.e4, for players who want to play for a win and do not mind taking risks.

    EBOOK - Play the Benko Gambit
    Catalog Code: E-B0333EM

    The Benko Gambit is undoubtedly one of Black's most dynamic openings. In return for his pawn investment Black gains long-term pressure, which is often so powerful it continues right through into the endgame. White must decide whether to grab the pawn and try to hold on, or to choose a more aggressive approach. Either way, Black generally succeeds in his aim of unbalancing the position from a very early stage.

    EBOOK - The Sniper
    Play ...g6, ....Bg7 and ...c5!
    Catalog Code: E-B0328EM

    The Sniper is a dynamic and universal opening weapon for Black which can be used against all mainline openings. Black's system of development with ...g6 and ...Bg7 initially allows White to occupy the centre but, in true hypermodern style, Black strikes back immediately with ...c5. The Sniper can lead to original or barely-known positions in which Black can strive for the initiative. It's also rich in move-order possibilities, with potential transpositions into Sicilian, King's Indian or Benko-type positions.

    Catalog Code: E-B0296EM

    The Trompowsky Attack is well known as an ambitious and aggressive opening. Initially an offbeat line favoured by club players, in recent history it has undergone somewhat of a transformation. Thanks to the efforts and innovations of Grandmasters such as Mickey Adams and Julian Hodgson, it has been fine-tuned into a powerful attacking weapon, and today it is seen as an important mainline opening in its own right.
