International Master Andrew Martin
Product DescriptionPlayers wishing to play the Dutch Defence must certainly pay as much attention to Anti-Dutch systems as they do to the main line, as it is these very lines that will occur most often at club level. On this DVD IM Andrew Martin shows entertaining ways to get a good position as Black against all the most common Anti-Dutch strategies, so that you never have to worry about facing these annoying sidelines again. The most important lines: 2 Nc3, 2 Bg5, 2 e4 and various side options for White are all considered. The Dutch is fully playable in the author's opinion and especially at club level, where it will be a sharp and uncompromising points-scorer. Every game featuring the Dutch is an adventure! Video running time: 3 h 10 min.
