    The Triangle Setup - Michal Krasenkow
    A Complete Defense Against 1. d4
    Catalog Code: WIN0440CB

    The Semi-Slav defense (1.d4 d5 followed by ...e7-e6 and ...c7-c6) is one of the most popular opening set-ups for Black. Black can follow two entirely different concepts. One includes an early ...Ng8-f6 and leads to a number of popular and deeply analysed systems: the Meran, the Anti-Meran, the Botvinnik, the Moscow, the Anti- Moscow, the Westphalian, etc. The other, in which Black refrains from ...Ng8-f6 at an early stage, is presented by GM Michal Krasenkow on this DVD. Black keeps a choice between two double-edged interesting systems: the Noteboom variation (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c6 4.Nf3 dxc4) and the Stonewall (...f7-f5) if White plays an early e2-e3. Of course Black’s decision to refrain from an early ...Ng8-f6 gives White other options, the most important being the Slav gambit (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c6 4.e4 etc.). Therefore Black’s set-up may lead to a whole range of different and interesting positions, which help the black player to broaden his strategic and tactical understanding. This makes the Noteboom/Stonewall opening repertoire a particularly good choice for young, aspiring players.

    Meeting the Gambits - Vol. 1 - Gambits after 1. e4 - Andrew Martin
    Catalog Code: WIN0502CB

    Despite the advances in computing power, gambit play is still very common, especially among young players, club players and improvers, and it is wise to learn how to defend against these dangerous ideas. You do not want to be wiped out in the opening! On Meeting the Gambits Vol. 1; Gambits after 1.e4, FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin provides you with an excellent selection of repertoire choices and teaches you the right approach to take against gambiteers. Do not let them have their way! You may see this as a course in defensive and counterattacking technique.

    Solid and Safe Against the Wild Indians - Play the Fianchetto - Nicholas Pert
    Catalog Code: WIN0447CB

    The King’s Indian and Grunfeld are notoriously tricky and theoretical openings. The Fianchetto variation avoids the main lines which Black players enjoy, and goes for a small but safe edge. Many people fear playing against the King’s Indian because of Black’s ability to attack the White King, but in the Fianchetto variation it is very hard for Black to generate any attacking chances, instead play is often positional, with White having slightly more space for his or her pieces. In this DVD, the author has gone a long way to finding the best lines for White to gain an advantage against Black’s various responses.

    The 4... Nf6 Caro-Kann - Nigel Davies
    Catalog Code: WIN0497CB

    The dynamic 4...Nf6 line of the Caro-Kann has been unfashionable in recent years whilst the theory on 4...Bf5 and 4...Nd7 now extends well into the middle game. 4…Nf6 therefore offers a golden opportunity for Caro-Kann players to throw their opponents on their own resources – and here even top Grandmasters can go wrong. On this DVD Nigel Davies examines both the Bronstein-Larsen (5.Nxf6+ gxf6) and the Tartakower (5.Nxf6+ exf6) systems.

    A Strategic Weapon Against 1. d4 - The Queen's Indian Defense - Victor Bologan
    Catalog Code: WIN0455CB

    The Queen’s Indian Defense is one of the most solid and rich openings against 1.d4. Together with the Nimzo-Indian and the Catalan it forms the so called “Classical Setup”, which any player should know. The Queen’s Indian is a favorite of both top players and amateurs. Victor Bologan has enjoyed the advantages of the Queen’s Indian defense for many years in open and in top tournament. He says: “The soul of the opening, the most important piece, is course the bishop on b7. Please remember this and keep it active.” Every chess enthusiast, from beginner to high level player, can profit from this DVD. Enrich your chess vocabulary, be open to new ideas: Play the Queen’s Indian!

    WIN0517CB
    Catalog Code: WIN0517CB

    The Four Knights has a rich and distinguished history. Like a fine wine, the Four Knights only improves with age, establishing itself as an extremely effective way of meeting 1...e5. On the outside this opening seems deceptively quiet, yet apparently natural moves can often lead to some devastating attacks. This DVD takes you through everything that you need to know in order to play this opening with confidence, starting with calm options and then moving on to the outrageous Belgrade opening.

    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.

    Trends in Modern Openings 2015 - Rustam Kasimdzhanov
    Catalog Code: WIN0460CB

    Modern tournament practice has virtually surpassed the so-called ''opening theory''. Thanks to a wealth of tournament games some openings and lines develop so rapidly that even the ambitious amateur has difficulties to keep his own repertoire updated. On this DVD Kasimdzhanov presents highly topical openings and shows their current state of theory. From the perspective of a top player he explains why certain openings are played while others more or less vanished from tournament practice. This DVD helps you to remain up-to-date in a number of important and popular openings and provides you with many ideas for your own repertoire.

    This DVD offers White a complete repertoire against the classical Slav, a popular opening, in which Black can choose from a wide range of plans. In the Slav White often has more space but to turn this into an advantage he needs to know the typical strategic and tactical motifs of the opening and has to develop a feeling for the nuances of the position.

    A Safe Path Through the Sicilian Jungle
    Catalog Code: WIN0425CB

    The Sicilian has been known for decades as the most reliable way for Black to obtain an unbalanced but good position. Among the most popular Sicilians at the top level the two that certainly stand out are the Najdorf and the Paulsen. Unlike the Najdorf, the Paulsen provides a safer and more positionally based way of fighting against 1.e4. Black is able to obtain adequate counterplay in all variations without going for a do-or-die type of attack.

    The Caro-Kann Defence is one of the most solid replies for Black after 1.e4. I’ve played it myself for many years with black, so I know how difficult is to gain an advantage with white. My choice of the Advance Variation for White is because of the complex strategical play in which White has a long-term space advantage. - Victor Bologan

I will now share my secrets of this opening with you, in the hope that the English Opening can help you improve in a similar way. My main teaching method behind this set of two DVDs is to teach you some simple yet effective set ups, without the need to rely on memorising numerous complicated variations. I have explained what you are trying to achieve with each move and set up, then you will know what plans to put into motion in the middlegame and endgame.

    Open Games with ...Bc5 - Sam Collins
    Catalog Code: WIN0509CB

    Sam Collins has designed a repertoire based on systems with …Bc5 after 1.e4 e5. Each of these lines (built around 3…Bc5 against the Ruy Lopez and the Italian, the Spanish Four Knights with 4…Bc5, 3…Bb4+ 4.c3 Bc5 against the Scotch, and 2…Bc5 against the King’s Gambit) share common aspirations of developing the bishop actively outside the pawn chain, fighting for control of the key d4-square and ultimately supporting attacking ideas on the kingside.

    Play the Pirc Like a Grandmaster - Positional Lines - Mihail Marin - VOL. 1
    Catalog Code: WIN0430CB

    Is there an absolute truth in a flexible opening such as the Pirc Defense? After I had played and studied the Pirc intensively for more than ten years I was sure I had found the best move order against each White system. Then I stopped playing the opening for a while and when I checked new ideas I realized that things were not that simple. Thus, the repertoire I recommend on this DVD is a combination of good lines in my old repertoire that have stood the test of time and new lines inspired by my fresh look at the Pirc.

    Trends in Modern Openings - Rustam Rasimdzhanov
    Catalog Code: WIN0445CB

    Modern tournament practice has virtually surpassed the so-called ''opening theory''. Thanks to a wealth of tournament games some openings and lines develop so rapidly that even the ambitious amateur has difficulties to keep his own repertoire updated. But experts help. Ex- FIDE-World Champion Rustam Kasimzhanov is considered to be one of the leading experts in the field of opening preparation. In three World Championship matches he was second of Viswanathan Anand and helped him to successfully defend the title. And with Kasimdzhanov’s help and excellent opening preparation the German team surprisingly became European Team Champion 2011. On this DVD Kasimdzhanov presents highly topical openings and shows their current state of ''theory''. From the perspective of a top player he explains why certain openings are played while others more or less vanished from tournament practice. This DVD helps you to remain up-to-date in a number of important and popular openings and provides you with many ideas for your own repertoire.

    King's Indian - A Modern Approach - Victor Bologan
    Catalog Code: WIN0475CB

    Author Victor Bologan about his DVD: “If chess players are in Iceland, they usually pay tribute to the genius of Bobby Fischer, the 11th World Champion, by visiting his grave in Selfoss in Reykjavik. With this DVD I also want to express my gratitude to Fischer: for his great contribution to chess in general and because he helped to make the King’s Indian more popular in particular. As a junior, when I was ten years old, my coach advised me to study the openings of Fischer and I discovered the King’s Indian. Later I learned about the different approaches Black has in the King’s Indian. He can keep his structure flexible and put his pawns on d6 and c6; he can play the sharp and principled Nc6 in the classical lines and in some sidelines he can sacrifice a pawn with …b5 as in the Benko.
