      The Caro-Kann Exchange Variation from White's Perspective - Chess Lecture Volume 112
      by GM Eugene Perelshteyn
      Catalog Code: DVD0112CL

      GM Perelshtyen shows how to employ the Exchange Variation as he often has at the GM Level. The Exchange Variation 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.exd5 cxd5 is a very subtle line for white to fight for a long-term positional advantage based on a rapid development of your two bishops that will make it very difficult in turn for black to develop his bishops to active diagonals.

      Opening Trends 3 - The Catalan - Chess Lecture - Volume 103
      Hosted by IM David Vigorito
      Catalog Code: DVD0103CL

      In the Catalan opening, White adopts a combination of the Queen’s Gambit and Reti Opening. White plays d4 and c4 and fianchettos the white bishop on g2. A common opening sequence is 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3. The Catalan derives its name from Catalonia—a nation inside of Spain. Used by Kramnik three times in the World Chess Championship in 2006, the Catalan has recently gained a good deal of attention by high-level GMs. It was also played four times by Anand in the World Chess Championship in 2010 against Topalov, Vigorito explains that game and others in this DVD.

      Weapons for White Against the King's Indian and Grunfeld
      Catalog Code: E-B0388EM

      Grandmaster Damian Lemos presents a repertoire for White against both the King's Indian and Grünfeld defences. Many players struggle to find suitable lines to challenge these two popular and dynamic openings, or find the masses of theory in the main lines difficult to digest. Lemos solves this perennial problem by advocating a solid system of development based on the fianchetto system, where understanding ideas is more important than move memorization.

      Offbeat King's Indian
      Lesser Known Tries to Counter this Most Popular of Defences
      Catalog Code: B0167EM

      The King's Indian is one of the most exciting and complex defences that black can employ against the queen's pawn opening. The main lines of the King's Indian are very sharp and tactical but they are also incredibly theoretical in nature it can be a full time job simply keeping up with the latest developments and fashion. So it is not surprising that many playing white choose to look elsewhere for something to counter this popular opening. In Offbeat King's Indian distinguished openings expert Krzysztof Panczyk studies unusual and less theoretical systems for white, ones that are tricky and are likely to throw the King's Indian player off his or her stride early on in the game. Variations investigated include lines with an early Bd3, ones with Nge2,l and ones involving a swift Bg5. By studying this new book, white players can arm themselves with a while new weaponry of lines against the King's Indian, while those playing Black can look closely for the recommended antidotes.

      Fundamentals of Isolated Queen Pawn Positions - Chess Lecture - Volume 64
      Catalog Code: DVD0064CL

      An isolated pawn or “isolani” is a pawn which has no friendly pawn on an adjacent file. Isolated pawns are usually thought of as a weakness because they cannot be protected by other pawns. Many textbook openings create at least one isolated pawn but are nevertheless accepted as orthodox because of the advantages they create. With an isolated pawn you can have improved development and associated opportunities for counter play that offset or even outweigh the weaknesses associated with the pawn's isolation.

      Schliemann's Defense
      Catalog Code: B0197IS

      The Schliemann Defense is one of the most difficult and dangerous defenses in chess that Black has available. It starts with 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 f5 !!!!

      This is not considered a Gambit because it would be useless for White to take the pawn with 4. exf5. Passive Defense is likely to give White a bad game. So, White must counter with 4. Nc3.

      There are now two main branches. This book was previously published as a two volume work. However, most players of the Schliemann prefer the second and more risky line, so the two volumes have been combined into one book here.

      This is an update with the latest new games and analysis on the two main branches of the Schliemann Defense. These branches arise after the moves 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 f5 4. Nc3 fxe4 5. Nxe4. The more conservative move favored by most strong players was 5. …. Nf6. The more dangerous and risky line is 5. …. d5, allowing 6. Nxe5 dxe4 7. Nxc6 Qg5. This was thought to have been refuted but now grandmasters and others have proven that it is perfectly playable.
