Jaenisch Gambit – GM Roeland Pruijssers
The Jaenisch (or Schliemann) Gambit – 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 f5 – is a relatively underestimated reply to the hugely popular Ruy Lopez.
In his first video series for chess24, Dutch Grandmaster Roeland Pruijssers, one of the world’s leading experts, shows you what the opening is all about.
He gives a full overview and sometimes gives viewers more than one option, so you can choose lines that match your own style of play.
Gambit Buffet – GM Simon Williams
This series is all about gambits – chess openings where you give up a pawn early on, usually for an attack. It’s ideal for beginners, as Grandmaster Simon Williams combines an introduction to gambits after the first move 1.e4 with some famous games from chess history!
Beating The Alekhine Defense – IM Lawrence Trent
Lawrence Trent explains how to counter Alekhine’s Defence.
The goal of this series is to give you a repertoire against Alekhine’s Defence, covering lines with cxd6 and exd6.
The Caro-Kann – FM Lukas Winterberg
The Caro-Kann Defence is sometimes considered solid, drawish and a bit dull, but in this video series FM Lukas Winterberg shows that it can lead to surprisingly sharp positions.
Black can play the Caro-Kann Defence for a win! These videos and the accompanying eBook contain a complete repertoire from Black’s perspective and cover all main and sidelines.
You will learn a complete repertoire in the Caro-Kann as Black.
The Italian Chess Opening – GM Ivan Saric
One of the oldest chess openings, the Italian game (also known as the Giuoco Piano) still has relevance today.
The Italian game has seen a resurgence in the last couple of years due to the influence of defenses to the Spanish (Ruy Lopez) such as the Berlin and the Marshall and GM Ivan Saric believes every serious 1.e4 player should have both 3.Bb5 and 3.Bc4 in their repertoire.
With many 1…e5 players expecting 3.Bb5, the Italian can be a great surprise weapon, especially when you are well prepared.
In this 3-hour course, GM Ivan Saric shows you how to create maximum problems for your opponent using systems with d3. Known as the Giuoco Piannisimo, or “very slow game”, this opening is inaccurately named as the positions can become wild and full of attacking possibilities at any point.
With GM Saric’s advice on the key lines and plans, you will be able to get an early advantage in your games by playing the Italian.
GM Repertoire: Fighting the Italian – GM Jan Gustafsson
In this video series, Grandmaster Jan Gustafsson deals with the Italian Opening (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4), an old opening that has recently exploded in popularity at the very highest level.
He provides a complete repertoire for Black, with the main focus on facing the Giuoco Piano, including such famous tries as the Evans Gambit.
Play 1.e4: A Complete White Repertoire – GM Jon Ludvig Hammer
In this video series, Jon Ludvig Hammer provides a complete repertoire for playing 1.e4 with the white pieces. He focuses on solid lines with quick development, early castling and good central control.
GM Jon Ludvig Hammer will help you play 1.e4 with confidence, no matter what Black attempts to bring to the table. Whether they decide to go for open play, a semi-open Defense or even a closed one, you will be ready to face it, and succeed!
The 7-hour course by Norwegian no. 2 and former Magnus Carlsen second is aimed at players of every level, from those just starting out to strong players looking for a sound foundation to meet all Black’s responses to 1.e4.
A repertoire against the Scandinavian – IM Lawrence Trent
In the Scandinavian Defence,Black responds to 1.e4 with d5, immediately challenging White in the center. Although an ancient opening, it’s still relevant today and has been played by the likes of Alekhine, Larsen, Bronstein and Anand.
Very popular at club and tournament level, it is essential for 1.e4 players to know how to combat some of Black’s dangerous lines.
A thorough knowledge of the key moves and ideas against the 4 most common lines (2…Nf6, 3…Qd8, 3…Qd6 and 3…Qa5) will enable White to get a very comfortable position at worst and an early advantage if Black puts a foot wrong – something that is quite easy to do.
IM Lawrence Trent reveals his pet lines to crush the Scandinavian in this clearly explained video.
The Four Knights – GM Jan Gustafsson
If you’re a 1.e4 e5 player, you’ll soon realize that the Four Knights, 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 is a popular and annoying weapon at White’s disposal.
You need to learn how to deal with it, whether your weapon of choice against the Spanish (Ruy Lopez) is the Marshall, the Berlin or the Petroff.
