The English Opening - Simon WIlliams - VOL. 2

Product Code: WIN0464CB

Description

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.

Simon Williams became a IM in 1998 and a GM in 2008. For the last 15 years he has concentrated on teaching, playing and making instructional chess DVDs. His playing style is very aggressive, preferring attacking chess to positional grinds, hence why he is perfect for DVDs on the King’s Gambit and Mazing Moves! He is the author of numerous chess books. My first chess book. ‘Play the Classical Dutch’ got voted, in New in Chess, as one of the top 10 chess books of all time.
