Strengthen your chess foundation
Strengthen your chess foundation
by Nisha Mohota
IM Nisha Mohota shows guidelines to steer you through the opening, shows basic endgames, helps you to understand fundamental pawn structures, and explains principles and patterns of attack and defense
€29.90

IM Nisha Mohota: “On this DVD I show and explain elements of chess strategy and tactics every player should know. I offer guidelines to steer you through the opening, show basic endgames, help you to understand fundamental pawn structures, and explain principles and patterns of attack and defense. But to play successfully, theory is not enough. It also helps to know a bit about chess psychology because even the strongest players make mistakes. It is important to know how to deal with errors – errors of your opponent and errors you make. Throughout the DVD I try to highlight two of the most important elements of chess: the process of decision-making and how pawn structures shape the position and help you to find the right plans. Finally, I talk about ‘beauty’ in chess – after all, this is what attracts me to the game.”

How to crack the Berlin Wall with 5.Re1
How to crack the Berlin Wall with 5.Re1
by Alexei Shirov
Alexei Shirov shows on this DVD how White can develop pressure and seize the initiative with 5.Re1 against the Berlin Wall.
€29.90

The Berlin Defence which arises after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.O-O Nxe4 gives White a hard nut to crack, and the solidity of the line led to its nickname “Berlin Wall”. The mainline 5.d4 in particular leads to positions in which White has had trouble to prove any advantage. On this DVD Latvian top player Alexei Shirov proposes a different approach. He recommends to play 5.Re1 which leads to a symmetrical position that according to Shirov is not boring at all. With a whole range of grandmaster games Shirov shows that White can indeed develop pressure and seize the initiative and that the position is full of subtleties. Other players also noted the move 5.Re1 as an option against the Berlin and it is no coincidence that this line was played in the World Championship match between Magnus Carlsen and Sergey Karjakin in New York 2016. On this DVD you get an insight how top grandmasters and chess professionals do opening research and how theory continually develops in modern tournament chess. Of course you also get a first-class weapon against the Berlin which helps you to be at least one step ahead of your opponent. Suitable for advanced club and tournament players.

Extra 175

20.968 games (played between October and December 2016)
Video training: Adrian Mikhalchishin has recently been enjoying playing the Queen's Gambit Accepted and in doing so renounced complicated openings. But in a game against Slovenian player Jure Zorko, after 1.d4 d5 2.Sf3 c5 3.dxc5 he suddenly found himself having to play against his own opening with reversed colours - and even a tempo behind.
Robert Ris presents a game played between two of his favourite players at the Interzonal Tournament of 1973 in Petropolis: David Bronstein and Ljubomir Ljubojevic. Immediately after the opening White sacrificed material and an exciting struggle developed.
Andrew Martin explains why the study of classical games is so valuable. Then he demonstrates his thesis by looking at the game Capablanca-Tartakower, New York 1924. The world champion has a slightly better position, but things are not decided until the rook ending which is now considered a classic.

The Elephant Gambit
by Andrew Martin
Let Andrew Martin select a repertoire for you on this 60 mins, which, if used with discretion, will rack up the points.
€9.90

The Elephant Gambit (1.e4.e5 2.Nf3 d5!?) has never really been given the attention it deserves. It is a very useful surprise weapon. Let us list the advantages of playing this particular opening: 1) Shock value 2) It is very aggressive. Black can take over the initiative early. 3) Many tricky lines 4) Unorthodox. Black is basically taking the game to the opponent as early as move two. Not many openings do that! It's a perfect opening for young players and club players to adopt. Let Andrew Martin select a repertoire for you on this 60 mins, which, if used with discretion, will rack up the points. I am sure that you will enjoy this unusual tour of the Elephant Gambit.
