Tactic Toolbox Semi-Slav with 6. Bg5 - Robert Ris

Product Code: WIN0453CB

Description

If you like an exciting battle you should play 5.Bg5 against the Semi-Slav. This natural developing move is the most principled and sharpest option against Black’s sound setup. With interactive exercises this DVD shows you typical tactical patterns in this line, and with these examples from classical and recent games by leading experts of this opening you learn how to play 5.Bg5 with success.

 

The material divides as follows:

1) 5…h6

1a) The Anti-Moscow Gambit with 6.Bh4 leads to doubled-edged play because Black will try to keep his extra pawn after 6…dxc4 7.e4 g5 8.Bg3 b5 etc.

1b) The Moscow Variation with 6.Bxf6 leads to an immediate imbalance but White’s attacking chances contain more venom than you might believe at first!

2) 5…dxc4 The Botvinnik Variation with 5…dxc4 is Black’s sharpest option. It cannot get any crazier!

3) 5…Nbd7 The Cambridge-Springs Variation with 5…Nbd7 is Black’s most solid option, but it still leads to a strategically and tactically complicated middlegame.
