Komodo Chess 9
Komodo Chess 9
Faster, smarter, stronger.
€79.90

These three words summarize Komodo's evolution, as it runs even faster on multi-processors, uses all the software speeds gained to add more knowledge, and defeats previous number one programs by unheard of scores.
Komodo is a chess program that is different from the rest. Its search makes greater use of extensions than any other top engine, which allows Komodo to often see deeper than the others, even if it is displaying a slightly lower search depth. The evaluation differs from its main rivals because it represents a blend of both automated tuning and the judgment of a grandmaster and computer expert (Larry Kaufman). Fully automated evaluations are subject to rather large sample error, and applying some human chess judgment is beneficial, both in results and solid evaluations. Komodo is primarily known for superb positional play.

The basics of winning chess 2.0
The basics of winning chess 2.0
by Andrew Martin
So on this DVD let us try to trace the development of technique, almost from scratch to master level, so that we may develop these skills to the best of our ability.
€29.90

In this DVD Andrew Martin, experienced coach and International Master, shows you how. Andrew Martin about this DVD: “It has been ten years since the first ‘Basics of Winning Chess’ was released and so I thought it was time to revisit this project. After all, chess has changed dramatically over the last decade and standards seem higher than ever. We must attempt to keep up! It is often said that the strongest players operate like machines. Once they get a winning position, they win it. From a certain point in the game they seem to be able to play on autopilot. So on this DVD let us try to trace the development of technique, almost from scratch to master level, so that we may develop these skills to the best of our ability.“ „Version 2.0 draws extensively from modern chess practice. Virtually all the games are instructive and of high quality. Nearly all are from recent times and many have notes, which you may use for extra study. It gives you a roadmap for improvement. The DVD will be particularly useful for players within the rating band 1200-2200. It is a tour of the modern game.”

Ruy Lopez: Attack with the Schliemann
Ruy Lopez: Attack with the Schliemann
by Sam Collins
Auf dieser DVD präsentiert IM Sam Collins ein vollständiges und detailliertes Repertoire für Schwarz. Er schlägt zahlreiche Neuerungen und Verbesserungen vor und kommt zu dem Schluss, dass Weiß keinen klaren Weg hat, Eröffnungsvorteil zu bekommen.
€29.90

Das Schliemann- (oder Jänisch-) Gambit 1.e4 e5 2.Sf3 Sc6 3.Lb5 f5 dämmerte lange im theoretischen Halbschatten vor sich hin, doch dann revolutionierte Top-Großmeister Teimour Radjabov die Eröffnung mit neuen Ideen. Er untermauerte seine Analysen mit ausgezeichneten Ergebnissen gegen die besten Spieler der Welt. Im Schliemann-Gambit spielt Schwarz vom dritten Zug an aktiv und aggressiv und opfert oft einen Bauern, um offene Linien, Aktivität am Königsflügel und das Läuferpaar zu erhalten. Auf dieser DVD präsentiert IM Sam Collins ein vollständiges und detailliertes Repertoire für Schwarz. Er schlägt zahlreiche Neuerungen und Verbesserungen vor und kommt zu dem Schluss, dass Weiß keinen klaren Weg hat, Eröffnungsvorteil zu bekommen. Beleben Sie Ihr Repertoire, vermeiden Sie die spanische Zwangsjacke – spielen Sie 3…f5!

A dynamic weapon against the QGD - 5.Bf4
A dynamic weapon against the QGD - 5.Bf4
by Simon Williams
This DVD concentrates on the increasingly popular 5.Bf4 variation of the Queen’s Gambit Declined and gives White a dynamic and aggressive weapon against Black’s set-up.
€29.90

This DVD concentrates on the increasingly popular 5.Bf4 variation of the Queen’s Gambit Declined and gives White a dynamic and aggressive weapon against Black’s set-up. White puts his bishop on f4 to avoid the exchanges that often occur after 5.Bg5 and as early as possible wants to put pressure on Black. At the highest level the variation with 5.Bf4 has become much more popular than the more traditional 5.Bg5 line. Top players such as Alexei Shirov, Vladimir Kramnik, Levon Aronian, Wesley So and Anish Giri play it, and Vishy Anand used it in his only victory over Carlsen in the 2014 World Chess Championship. This DVD recommends dynamic lines for White against all set-ups by Black and gives you a good, aggressive, and reliable weapon against the Queen’s Gambit Declined.

A strategic weapon against 1.d4: The Queen's Indian Defense
A strategic weapon against 1.d4: The Queen's Indian Defense
by Viktor Bologan
The Queen’s Indian Defense is one of the most solid and rich openings against 1.d4. Together with the Nimzo-Indian and the Catalan it forms the so called “Classical Setup”, which any player should know.
€29.90

The Queen’s Indian Defense is one of the most solid and rich openings against 1.d4. Together with the Nimzo-Indian and the Catalan it forms the so called “Classical Setup”, which any player should know. The Queen’s Indian is a favorite of both top players and amateurs. Top players like the solid structure of Black’s set-up that offers a lot of scope for interesting play and new ideas, amateurs like that the variation is easy to learn and understanding the position is more important than memorizing lines. Victor Bologan has enjoyed the advantages of the Queen’s Indian defense for many years in open and in top tournament. He says: “The soul of the opening, the most important piece, is course the bishop on b7. Please remember this and keep it active.” Every chess enthusiast, from beginner to high level player, can profit from this DVD. Enrich your chess vocabulary, be open to new ideas: play the Queen’s Indian!

€29.90

The Two Knights Defence is one of the oldest opening lines in chess history. The sharp positions, arising after the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.exd5, have intrigued players for many decades! World Champions like Wilhelm Steinitz and Bobby Fischer shaped the opening, and in more recent years, Nigel Short has popularized it. In the main lines, black gambits a pawn – with fascinating consequences. This DVD is aimed at players of both sides, giving an objective overview of all relevant theoretical lines. The DVD also includes a database with model games and an interactive section with memory markers and tactics where the viewer can test his newly acquired knowledge.
