    Empire Chess – Vol 13

     

    Accelerated Dragon

     

    The Accelerated Dragon is an exceptionally effective system for black against 1. e4 because black develops rapidly and achieves strong activity early in the game via minor piece-play in the center. The Accelerated Dragon has been employed by countless top Grandmasters over the last 70 years, including legendary names Viktor Korchnoi, Vladimir Kramnik, Alexander Morozevich, Vassily Ivanchuk, Alexander Khalifman, and many more. The Accelerated Dragon is so frequently played at the highest levels of chess because it is a very successful opening system for black, permitting double-edged play and decisive results without risking too much in the opening. It is also very popular at the Grandmaster level because it is a very flexible opening scheme – you can transpose to the Accelerated Dragon from numerous lines in the Sicilian Defense. If you are searching for an opening for black against 1. e4 that will give you a very solid position with extremely dynamic possibilities in the middlegame – the Accelerated Dragon is the perfect solution. This chess DVD will teach you about common tactical patterns and attacking set-ups, and how you can come out on top with the black pieces!

     

    GM Eugene Perelstheyn

     

    Aside from reviewing the main lines and move orders, Grandmaster Eugene Perelshteyn also instructs viewers on deeper ideas and profound positional concepts. Many chess DVDs will teach you the move orders and nothing else – however in ¨Destroy White with the Accelerated Dragon¨ GM Perelshteyn focuses on the ideas behind the moves. After this watching this chess DVD, if your opponent deviates from the main moves early in the game – you will have nothing to worry about because you will truly understand the most effective PLANS, instead of memorizing topical move orders! This chess DVD presents over 2.5 hours of extremely high quality grandmaster instruction, reviewing all of the main lines and sidelines in the Accelerated Dragon system (ECO Code B35). Specifically GM Perelshteyn recommends a hypermodern approach with an immediate kingside fianchetto to avoid early deviations from the Accelerated Dragon (ie the Rossolimo Variation with 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5). With this hypermodern approach, you can narrow down your focus in the opening to really choose the lines that you want to research and play.

      The Paulsen System of the Sicilian challenges one of the common perceptions of the Sicilian Defense: That there is no safe way to play the Sicilian. The Paulsen System is generally regarded as one of the most solid, safe ways to play the Sicilian against 1.e4, while also giving plenty of opportunities for counter-attack.
