€29.90

The Scandinavian is a rarely employed opening on the hightest level und guides your opponent on much less familiar terrain than for example the Sicilian, French or any 1.e4 e5 system. This rareness leads to a slow evolution of theory and avoids the need to permanently refresh your knowledge on the latest developments. After 1.e4 d5 Black fights for the initiative from move one on without any precedent manoeuvring.

Frappez les premiers avec la Scandinave
by Christian Bauer
La Scandinave est une ouverture rarement employée qui vous permettra d’amener votre adversaire sur un terrain moins familier. Après 1.e4 d5, les Noirs luttent dès le premier coup pour l’initiative, le combat s’engage sans manoeuvres préalables.

La Scandinave est une ouverture rarement employée qui vous permettra d’amener votre adversaire sur un terrain moins familier que les Siciliennes, ou autre Françaises et parties découlant de 1.e4 e5. Cette relative rareté induit que la théorie de la Scandinave se développe lentement, évitant à celui qui la pratique de devoir avaler des tonnes de variantes. Après 1.e4 d5, les Noirs luttent dès le premier coup pour l’initiative, le combat s’engage sans manoeuvres préalables.

35.095 games and videos by Adrian Mikhalchishin, Yannick Pelletier & Robert Ris
€12.99

35.095 games played between August and September 2017 For Adrian Mikhalchishin the Catalan Opening remains a problem: should Black take the c4-pawn or not? And after the capture there is yet another decision to be taken: hang on to the c4-pawn for as long as possible or not. In the game which he himself played Black did not defend the c4-pawn but set out his stall with both ...a6 and ...Nc6. In the 2015 European Cup Yannick Pelletier managed another feat: he defeated Hikaru Nakamura, the No. 2 in the world ranking list! To do so he was able to turn to a beautiful idea which he himself had found in the King’s Indian. In the diagram the Swiss grandmaster had just sacrificed his bishop on a3 by playing 13.axb6!?. In the ensuing complications the American went wrong and Pelletier safely converted his advantage. Bent Larsen liked provoking his opponents. But in the game against Boris Spassky in the legendary match between the Soviet Union and the Rest of the World in 1970 he went too far. In a video Robert Ris shows you how the then reigning world champion who had Black immediately seized control and defeated his Danish opponent in only 17 moves.

The Hedgehog - a universal system against 1.c4 and 1.Nf3
The Hedgehog - a universal system against 1.c4 and 1.Nf3
by Yannick Pelletier
At first glance, the Hedgehog setup might appear somewhat passive but in fact Black is always waiting to launch a counterattack. Let Yannick Pelletier provide you with a complete repertoire against the English and the Reti!
€29.90

The Hedgehog is a wily opening system characterized by a very particular pawn structure. At first glance, Black’s setup might appear somewhat passive, but looks can be deceiving! In this opening, Black is always waiting for a chance to take the initiative and launch a counterattack, positioning his pieces harmoniously behind a wall of pawns and waiting for just the right moment to break things open and thus release the full potential of his position. A number of world champions, including Kasparov, Karpov and Carlsen, have all played the Hedgehog. It is suitable for any playing style and can arise from a large number of opening systems.

€29.90

Le Hérisson est une formation particulière, caractérisée par une certaine structure de pions. Son apparente passivité est trompeuse, car ce système est en fait conçu pour les joueurs de contre attaque. Les pièces se placent harmonieusement derrière le mur de pions, et les noirs attendent le moment opportun pour réaliser une percée qui dévoilera tout le potentiel de leur position. Employé par de nombreux champions tels Kasparov, Karpov ou Carlsen, ce système peut convenir à tous les styles de jeu. Le Hérisson se rencontre dans diverses ouvertures.

37.372 games and videos by Adrian Mikhalchishin, Yannick Pelletier & Robert Ris
€12.99

37.372 games played between June and August 2017
Adrian Mikhalchishin is always on the lookout for special ideas. He found one of these in a game by the young Efim Geller. In the Open Ruy Lopez, instead of restoring the material balance with the normal move 8.dxe5, he advanced his c-pawn to c4, where it is immediately doubly left hanging. Whether imitation of this can be recommended is explained to you in his video by the star Ukrainian trainer.
Yannick Pelletier had a catastrophic record against Ilia Smirin: he had lost all his games with Black. But in the 2016 European Cup in Novi Sad the Swiss grandmaster was in his best form: 6 out of 7 on third board, which also included a victory over the Israeli grandmaster – with Black!
In 1979 Mihail Tal was in outstanding form. Before winning the autumn interzonal tournament with a gigantic 14 out of 17, he was also triumphant along with Anatoly Karpov in one of the strongest tournaments of all time: Montreal. Robert Ris shows you Tal’s win against Spassky. In only 22 moves the magician from Riga completes a win with the black pieces.

Adrian Mikhalchishin is actually a supporter of the black pieces whenever the Queen’s Gambit Accepted is up for discussion. But in this video he shows a new move for White. Jon Ludvig Hammer, who has the white pieces, belongs to Magnus Carlsen’s team, so our author believes that the remarkable idea is a fruit of the analysis work undertaken in preparation for the world championship matches.
Yannick Pelletier is justifiably proud of his game against Richard Rapport, Chess Olympiad Baku 2016. The Hungarian, with White, does emerge from the opening better, but then after a queen sacrifice by Pelletier what arises is a position of a completely different type. In 66 moves the Swiss grandmaster manages to lead the black pieces to victory.
Nihal Sarin, 12, and Luis Engel, 15, casually exchange ideas about a sharp line in the Najdorf System.
