    The Modern Pirc - Victor Bologan
    Catalog Code: WIN0507CB

    Viktor Bologan has played the Pirc all his life and explains why he likes this opening: “Strong Grandmasters, International Masters or amateurs often ask me what they should play with Black against 1.e4 if they want to play for a win. Sometimes I say ‘Just play your opening and play it good’ but sometimes you need to or want to get your opponent out of his comfort zone, out of his preparation. This often happens in open tournaments where you have to play for a win with both colors. I have played the Modern Pirc all my life and it has brought me a lot of success.

    How to Crack the Berlin Wall with 5. Re1 - Alexei Shirov
    Catalog Code: WIN0503CB

    The Berlin Defence which arises after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.O-O Nxe4 gives White a hard nut to crack, and the solidity of the line led to its nickname “Berlin Wall”. The mainline 5.d4 in particular leads to positions in which White has had trouble to prove any advantage. On this DVD Latvian top player Alexei Shirov proposes a different approach. He recommends to play 5.Re1 which leads to a symmetrical position that according to Shirov is not boring at all. With a whole range of grandmaster games Shirov shows that White can indeed develop pressure and seize the initiative and that the position is full of subtleties.

    The Sicilian Tajmanov-Scheveningen - Alejandro Ramirez
    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.

    Simple But Powerful - Exchange on d5 in the Slav and Queen's Gambit - Simon Williams
    Catalog Code: WIN0471CB

    On this DVD, we will look at a simple-to-learn yet surprisingly effective system that White can play after 1 d4 d5. In all cases White will play 2 c4 - and if given the chance, 3 cxd5! This leads to fixed pawn structures where piece play takes center stage, and in these systems, White’s pieces are always stronger than Black’s! The main ideas and concepts are thoroughly explained by taking a detailed look at how the best players in the world handle this system.

    A Dynamic Weapon Against the Queen's Gambit Decline - 5. bf4 - Simon Williams
    Catalog Code: WIN0456CB

    This DVD concentrates on the increasingly popular 5.Bf4 variation of the Queen’s Gambit Declined and gives White a dynamic and aggressive weapon against Black’s set-up. White puts his bishop on f4 to avoid the exchanges that often occur after 5.Bg5 and as early as possible wants to put pressure on Black. At the highest level the variation with 5.Bf4 has become much more popular than the more traditional 5.Bg5 line. Top players such as Alexei Shirov, Vladimir Kramnik, Levon Aronian, Wesley So and Anish Giri play it, and Vishy Anand used it in his only victory over Carlsen in the 2014 World Chess Championship. This DVD recommends dynamic lines for White against all set-ups by Black and gives you a good, aggressive, and reliable weapon against the Queen’s Gambit Declined.

    Tactic Toolbox Grunfeld - Michal Krasenkow
    Catalog Code: WIN0434CB

    If you want to know an opening, you should understand its typical positional ideas and plans. It is also good to remember variations. But this is not enough. You should also know the typical tactical motifs or your opening. This trio of strategy, variations, and tactics forms a conscious and subconscious image in the mind and helps you to find the right moves. The Grünfeld Defense is an active opening, which often leads to sharp, double-edged play, and tense tactical fights. Therefore the tactical part of the Grünfeld-image is extremely important and should be steadily developed. The most effective, timeproven way to develop tactical abilities, imagination, and the ability to calculate variations, is practice. Poets say, “No day without a line”, aspiring chessplayers should say “No day without tactical exercise”.

    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!

This DVD offers Black a complete repertoire against all weapons White may employ on move six. The recommended repertoire is not as risky as other Sicilians but still offers Black plenty of counter-play. It is an ideal system for players who want to enter the wonderful world of the Sicilian.

    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.

    The English Opening - Simon WIlliams - VOL. 2
    Catalog Code: WIN0464CB

    This English Opening was my first love and this was the opening that I used to progress from the rank amateur player to 2400+ International Master. 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.

    Smith-Morra Gambit - Shattering the Sicilian - EMPIRE CHESS
    Catalog Code: DVD0035EP

    The Smith-Morra Gambit is an extremely effective surprise weapon because many Sicilian Defense players wrongly believe the Smith-Morra to be outdated and easily refutable. While the Smith-Morra Gambit is rarely seen at the elite Grandmaster level, it remains a strong opening for white against the Sicilian Defense as black is guaranteed to face long-lasting, unpleasant pressure in every part of the board.

    A Practical White Repertoire with 1. d4 & 2. c4 - VOL. 3
    The Nimzo-Indian and Other Defences
    Catalog Code: B0100EU

    'The final volume consists of five parts. In the first part we analyse some seldom played moves for Black. The second part of the book is devoted to the Dutch Defence. In the third part we deal with the different defences for Black after 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4, besides 2...c5 and 2...e6. In the fourth part we analyse the Benoni Defence and the Benko Gambit. Finally, in the fifth part of the book, we deal with Black's most reliable opening - the Nimzo-Indian Defence. In this volume, just like in the previous two, we have emphasized on reliability and rationality in our choice of systems for White. For example, against the Dutch Defence we have preferred the move 2.Nc3, with which White reduces Black's possibilities considerably. Against the Nimzo-Indian Defence we analyse theRubinstein System - 4.e3, followed by Nge2, in which White's first task is to avoid compromising of his pawn-structure.''
