Product Description

Description / E-DVD - VECO - The Open Catalan - IM Robert Ris - Volume 4

The Video Encyclopedia of Chess Openings Vol#4 – The Open Catalan – IM Robert Ris

The Open Catalan begins with the moves 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 d5 4.g3 dxc4 5.Bg2. (See the diagram).

The Catalan Opening is one of those openings you really should have in your locker.

The Catalan takes the best bits of the Queen’s Gambit and Reti Opening to give you easy development, a sound position, and rich, creative play. It was used extensively by Vladimir Kramnik during his World Chess Championship matches.

Now IM Robert Ris has put together a new 3 hour course that teaches you how to get great positions with the Open Catalan.

USCF Sales now offers a convenient eDVD option for all of our DVD media titles Rather than having to wait for an item to be delivered to you, you can now buy an eDVD and enjoy it on your computer. Downloading an eDVD also allows you to conserve physical space, allowing you to keep your Chess Library with you wherever you go, without having to carry around dozens or hundreds of DVDs.

To play eDVDs, you will need to download a digital video player. We personally recommend VLC Player







How do I download my new eDVD?

Once you have completed the purchase, you will receive an email that contains instructions on how to download your eDVD.


What if I don't have an email address?

Unfortunately, a working email address is required to purchase eDVDs. If you do not have a working email address, we recommend that you create a temporary email address at one of the many free email providers (,, and use that when you place your order. If you enter a non-working email address when making your purchase, you won't be able to download the eDVD. We are not responsible for customer orders where a non-working email address was provided during purchase.


What format is the eDVD?

The eDVD is in a standard video format and will play on any computer. It has been tested on all versions of Microsoft Windows.


How large is the eDVD?

eDVD files can be quite large, between 300 Megabyte and 1 Gigabyte (depending on length of DVD). The longer the DVD, the larger the file size. With a typical high-speed internet connection, it can be downloaded in less than 5 minutes.


Can the eDVDs be streamed off the internet?

No, eDVDs must be downloaded in their entirety to your computer before they can be viewed.

Should I keep the email with instructions on downloading my new eDVD?

YES! Should you accidentally delete your eDVD, you will need the link in the email to download it again. If you lose the email with instructions, you will have to repurchase the eDVD again. We recommend bookmarking the link in your web browser for easier access.

Yes! When you purchase an eDVD, it is for your personal (non-commercial) use only. You do not have permission to copy it and distribute it. This is illegal and distributing it would be against the law.
