    The Modern Triangle
    Catalog Code: B0151EU

    This book presents the Triangle set-up, which arises after 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3/Nf3 c6. This move order avoids many unpleasant systems for White, notably the Catalan, the Exchange Slav and the Botvinnik Variation. It leads to sharp strategically unbalanced play and brings Black excellent practical results.

    Chess Opening Workbook for Kids

    Chess Opening Workbook for Kids is the second in a new series of books that help players gain chess skills by tackling hundreds of carefully chosen exercises. The themes are similar to those in Gambit’s best-selling ‘Chess for Kids’ series, but the focus is on getting hands-on experience. Many positions build on ones given earlier, showing how advanced ideas are normally made up of simpler ones that we can all grasp.

    Squeezing 1.e4 e5 - A Solid Strategic Approach
    Catalog Code: B0150EU

    The previous book of Khalifman and Soloviov, The Modern Scotch, discussed how to counter 1.e4 e5 in the most direct, aggressive and sometimes even risky fashion. Their new work explores a radically different approach. It presents a White repertoire based on the Four Knights Game, and in particular, the main line – the traditional system with 4.Bb5.

    E-DVD - Win the Game with Rare Opening - C24 Bishop Opening
    Catalog Code: E-DVD005LCS

    The f2–f4 push gives the Bishop’s Opening an affinity with the King’s Gambit and the Vienna Game, two openings that share this characteristic. The Bishop’s Opening can transpose into either of these openings, and in particular a favorable variation of the King’s Gambit, but with care Black can circumvent this. Transpositions into Giuoco Piano and Two Knights Defense and other openings are also possible.

    The Trompowsky is a popular alternative to the more common lines after 1.d4 Nf6 beginning 2.c4 or 2.Nf3. By playing 2.Bg5, White sidesteps immense bodies of opening theory of various Indian Defences like the Queen’s Indian, King’s Indian, Nimzo-Indian, as well as the Grünfeld Defence.

    E-DVD - Win the Game with Rare Opening - A03 A02 Bird's Opening
    Catalog Code: E-DVD009LCS

    Bird’s is a standard flank opening. White’s strategic ideas involve control of the e5-square, offering good attacking potential at the expense of slightly weakening his kingside. Black may challenge White’s plan to control e5 immediately by playing From’s Gambit (1…e5); however, the From’s Gambit is notoriously double-edged and should only be played after significant study.

    E-DVD - Win the Game with Rare Opening - D05 Colle System
    Catalog Code: E-DVD001LCS

    The Colle System, also known as the Colle–Koltanowski system, is a chess opening strategy for White introduced by Belgian Edgard Colle in the 1920s, and further developed by George Koltanowski. This variation of the Queen’s Pawn Game is characterised by a systematic if modest development of White’s minor pieces to support a quick pawn move to the e4 square. It is solid, but inflexible.

    E-DVD - Win the Game with Rare Opening - B00 Nimzowitsch Opening
    Catalog Code: E-DVD007LCS

    This opening is an example of a hypermodern opening in which Black invites White to occupy the centre of the board at an early stage with pawns. Black’s intent is to block or otherwise restrain White’s central pawns and, if allowed to do so by inaccurate play by White, eventually undermine the White pawn centre by well-timed pawn advances of his own or by attacking the white pieces defending the centreThe Nimzowitsch is included under code B00 in the Encyclopaedia of Chess Openings.

    Along with the Trompowsky Attack, Colle System, London System, and Torre Attack, the Richter–Veresov Attack is one of the more common branches of the Queen’s Pawn Game. The more popular Ruy Lopez opening looks like a Richter–Veresov Attack mirrored on the queenside, but the dynamics of play are quite different.

    E-DVD - Win the Game with Rare Opening - A00 Dunst Opening
    Catalog Code: E-DVD010LCS

    The opening move 1.Nc3 develops the knight to a good square where it attacks the central e4 and d5 squares. Although quite playable, 1.Nc3 is rarely seen; it is only the eighth most popular of the 20 possible first moves, behind 1.e4, 1.d4, 1.Nf3, 1.c4, 1.g3, 1.f4, and 1.b3. As of February 6, 2009, out of the over 500,000 games in ChessGames.com’s database, only 644—about 1 out of every 780—begins with 1.Nc3.[2] The third-ranking 1.Nf3 is 66 times as popular.[2] Some very strong correspondence chess players employ 1.Nc3 frequently, and it is occasionally seen over-the-board.

    E-DVD - Win the Game with Rare Opening - D02 London System
    Catalog Code: E-DVD002LCS

    The London System is a chess opening that usually arises after 1.d4 and 2.Bf4 or 2.Nf3 & 3.Bf4. It is a “system” opening that can be used against virtually any black defence and thus comprises a smaller body of opening theory than many other openings. The London System is one of the Queen’s Pawn Game openings where White opens with 1.d4 but does not play the Queen’s Gambit. It normally results in a closed game.

    It is named after the Danish grandmaster Bent Larsen. Larsen was inspired by the example of the great Latvian–Danish player and theoretician Aron Nimzowitsch (1886–1935), who often played 1.Nf3 followed by 2.b3, which is sometimes called the Nimzowitsch–Larsen Attack. It is classified under the A01 code in the Encyclopaedia of Chess Openings.

    200 Open Games centers around the popular 1. P-K4 P-K4 opening (Bobby Fischer, for one, consistently chooses the king's pawn opening). "The author's idea," writes Bronstein, "is to show that quite a large number of similar games are in fact different in the way they have been created in the minds of the players. And although they are different, all these games, with their identical first move, still retain for a considerable time traces of one and the same inherited pattern. ..."

Not even grandmasters tread safely in the Elshad minefield.

It’s universal: Black can use the Hippo against virtually all of White’s choices (1.e4, 1.d4, 1.c4, 1.f4, the Colle, London, Trompowsky, Réti and others). It’s not very well known and will surprise many opponents.
