    Studies in: Alekhine's Defense - Chess Lecture - Volume 145
    Catalog Code: DVD0145CL

    Alekhine's Defense is a hyper-modern chess opening that begins with the moves: 1.e4 NF6. This bizarre defense, introduced by the chess champion Alekhine and later practiced by Gruenfeld, is the extreme in hyper-modern openings because of its unbalanced nature provoking a weakness in White's center pawns.

    Catalog Code: E-DVD0163FX

    The Fajarowicz Gambit suffers from a dubious reputation, but as FIDE Senior Trainer and IM Andrew Martin shows, that assessment is not justified at all. If Black shows common sense and a knowledge of the variations, then he may well get a very good or even winning position right out of the opening. The unorthodox Fajarowicz Gambit is perfect for all those who enjoy chess and wish to explore the tactical richness of our noble game.

    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.

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.

    A Simple Chess Opening Repertoire for Whtie
    A Quick-to-Learn King's Pawn Repertoire with Healthy Development and Attacking Chances
    Catalog Code: B0193GB

    By carefully choosing variations that lead to similar structures, IM Sam Collins has put together a powerful repertoire book ideal for players with limited study time. White opens with 1 e4 and develops his pieces to natural squares, seeking open lines and the initiative. The dominant theme of this sound and active repertoire is that – where reasonable – White seeks out Isolated Queen Pawn (IQP) positions: i.e. with the c3 Sicilian, Panov Caro-Kann, Tarrasch French, and the Italian Game with early c3 and d4.

    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.
