    Life Master Dana Mackenzie explains a system that he developed originally to defeat the computer program "Fritz." It was also played by Swedish correspondence player Arne Bryntse in the 1960s and early 1970s. However, Mackenzie's victory over IM David Pruess in 2006 is believed to be the first appearance of the Bryntse Gambit in an over-the-board master game. GM Jesse Kraai, who watched the game in person, invited Dana to lecture about it at  The Bryntse Gambit, featuring a queen sacrifice on move six, is Extreme Chess at its finest, creating a highly unusual material imbalance that is compensated by extraordinary piece coordination. On this DVD, Mackenzie presents four lectures that explore different sides of this gambit. As a special treat, we also offer GM Kraai's lecture, "Nez Nukes the Sicilian," about a famous game that is not a Bryntse Gambit but employs the same principles of piece coordination to justify a seemingly incredible queen sacrifice. Content: over 4 hours of instruction and analysis in a series of 5 lectures.
