by Andrew Martin
On Meeting the Gambits Vol. 1; Gambits after 1.e4, FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin provides you with an excellent selection of repertoire choices and teaches you the right approach to take against gambiteers.
€29.90

Despite the advances in computing power, gambit play is still very common, especially among young players, club players and improvers, and it is wise to learn how to defend against these dangerous ideas. You do not want to be wiped out in the opening! On Meeting the Gambits Vol. 1; Gambits after 1.e4, FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin provides you with an excellent selection of repertoire choices and teaches you the right approach to take against gambiteers. Do not let them have their way! You may see this as a course in defensive and counterattacking technique. The gambits covered on this DVD are:
Evans Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.b4)
King’s Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.f4)
Scotch Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.Bc4)
Danish Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.d4 exd4 3.c3)
Göring Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.c3)
Morra Gambit (1.e4 c5 2.d4) Wing Gambit (1.e4 c5 2.b4)
Milner Barry Gambit (1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 c5 4.c3 Nc6 5.Nf3 Qb6 6.Bd3 cxd4 7.cxd4 Bd7 8.Nc3 Nxd4 9.Nxd4 Qxd4)
Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (1.e4 d5 2.d4 dxe4 3.Nc3 followed by 4.f3 vs Caro-Kann, Scandinavian and French)
In other words, all the main line gambits after 1.e4 that commonly feature in practical play. Gambits must be given full respect, but not feared. If you learn from and employ the suggestions presented here, you will win more games.

The Spanish Fianchetto
The Spanish Fianchetto
by Sam Collins
In this DVD, Sam Collins explains the key ideas of 3…g6 and provides a complete repertoire for Black, suitable for regular use.
€29.90

In the fight for playable, unbalanced positions after 1.e4 e5, many top players (including World Champion Magnus Carlsen) turned to 3…g6 against the Ruy Lopez (2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5). Black aims for a kingside fianchetto combined, depending on White’s reaction, with …Nf6 or a quick …f5. Play quickly goes outside normal Ruy Lopez patterns and often reaches positions more typical of a King’s Indian, particularly when White closes the centre with d5. Black hopes that 1.e4 players will be less familiar with this territory, and the natural kingside attacking chances it offers the second player. In this DVD, Sam Collins explains the key ideas of 3…g6 and provides a complete repertoire for Black, suitable for regular use.

ChessBase Magazine Extra 174
ChessBase Magazine Extra 174
Learn openings from the classics with Sagar Shah; Andrew Martin presents the perhaps most important game of the World Championship 1972; Adrian Mikhalchishin gives a lecture on the Cozio Variation (each in video format). Plus 27.459 new games.
€12.99

27.459 games (played between August and October 2016)
Video training: In Lvov there are 21 grandmasters and they have a monthly meeting (Grandmasters Club), where training takes place and also where casual games are played in different formats. In his video Adrian Mikhalchishin shows you a Ruy Lopez game in which he defeated Anna Muzychuk with a Cozio Variation. Learn openings from the classics! Sagar Shah presents a game by Mikhail Botvinnik, which the latter won in 1941 against Boleslavsky. The principle – when exchanging a bishop accept that it will cost a weak pawn, but in return you will be aiming for superiority on the squares of the colour of precisely that bishop – is to be found nowadays in quite different openings. Andrew Martin takes as a starting point the book "World Championship Matches" (A. Schulz) for his presentation of perhaps the most important game of the Spassky-Fischer match, Reykjavik 1972. After two losses (though one of them by default) Fischer was already under pressure to be successful in the third game. And he solved his problem with a bravura performance. Our author adds to old analysis new discoveries arrived at with the help of engines.

Evans Gambit for the new generation
Evans Gambit for the new generation
by Simon Williams
The Evans Gambit is an attempt to destroy Black in gambit fashion straight out of the opening. Featuring games of old, and numerous new and exciting ideas, this DVD will give you a genuine and more exciting way of playing the Giuoco Piano.
€29.90

This romantic and exciting opening is named after the Welsh Sea Captain William Davies Evans who tried it first. The Evans (which arises after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4.b4!?) is an attempt to destroy Black in gambit fashion straight out of the opening and giants of previous years such as Adolf Andersson and Paul Morphy played lots of brilliancies with it. But the Evans Gambit has stood up to the test of time and in the modern era players such as Nigel Short, Garry Kasparov, Baadur Jobava, Hikaru Nakamura or Wei Yi have tried it with success. This DVD will prove that the gambit is still fully playable and a great way to try and blast Black away right from move one. Featuring games of old, and numerous new and exciting ideas, this DVD will give you a genuine and more exciting way of playing the Giuoco Piano.
