      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.

      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.

      A Trendy Answer in the Panov Botvinnik - Chess Lecture - Volume 114
      by IM Bill Paschall
      Catalog Code: DVD0114CL

      The Panov–Botvinnik Attack begins with the move 4.c4. It is named after Vasily Panov and the world champion Mikhail Botvinnik. This system often leads to typical isolated queen’s pawn (IQP) positions, with White obtaining rapid development, a grip on e5, and kingside attacking chances to compensate for the long-term structural weakness of the isolated d4-pawn. Here Bill shows you a system that has become the standard for experienced players.

      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.
