Sicilian Dragon Powerbook 2016
Sicilian Dragon Powerbook 2016
The Dragon Powerbook 2016 is based on over 113 000 games. Only the best games from classical tournaments (50 000) and correspondence chess (20 000) have been used. They are supplemented by over 43 000 games from the engine room on playchess.com.
€9.90

The new Dragon Powerbook 2016 is based on over 113 000 games, meaning that it has been extended compared to the previous version. Of course, only the best games from classical tournaments (50 000) and correspondence chess (20 000) have been used for the book. They are supplemented by over 43 000 high class games from the engine room on playchess.com. As might be expected the lion’s share of the games have been played in the Yugoslav Attack. A glance at the statistics is extremely intriguing, but you always have to check out whether the opposite side can improve results when the game progresses. The depth of analysis required to manage this is always easily achieved since the book goes far beyond current theory.

€9.90

The Caro-Kann Powerbook 2016 is based on over 278 000 games, of which more than 180 000 come from the engine room on playchess.com. Nowadays the Caro-Kann is played in a very different way. That also becomes clear in the Powerbook. After 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 the main continuation is no longer 3.Nc3 dxe4, but quite clearly 3.e5 Bf5 4.Nf3 with statistics based on over 71 000 games. A tip based on the book: 2.Nf3 d5 3.Nc3 Bg4 4.d4

A Black Repertoire against Offbeat Openings
A Black Repertoire against Offbeat Openings
by Nicholas Pert
Adetailed Black repetoire against many Offbeat Opening choices
€29.90

Many club players have their favourite pet opening variations which aren’t necessarily main lines. It’s important to know how to handle these variations as your opponent will likely know his systems well. In this DVD I provide a detailed Black repetoire against many of these Offbeat Opening choices. The lines I have covered include Pseudo – Trompowsky (1.d4 d5 2. Bg5), London Systems (1.d4 with an early Bf4), Torre Attack (1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 e6 and 3. Bg5), Veresov (1.d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 3. Bg5), Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (1.d4 d5 2. e4), Kings Indian Attack (1.Nf3 2.g3 3. Bg2), 1.b4, 1.b3, 1.f4, 1.g3 and 1.g4. I have gone into a lot of detail to provide a repetoire against each system, so if you know that your opponent plays a certain line, you can quickly watch the relevant chapter of the DVD for my recommendation of how to meet that variation. The subjects covered in this DVD are an essential part of any player’s opening knowledge.

Beat the Queen's Indian: The modern Fianchetto Line
Beat the Queen's Indian: The modern Fianchetto Line
by Simon Williams
This DVD is packed full of new, exciting and novel ideas; based on a repertoire starting with the moves 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nf3 with g3! to follow.
€29.90

This DVD is packed full of new, exciting and novel ideas; based on a repertoire starting with the moves 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nf3 with g3! to follow. Currently this is the most testing way to challenge players who prefer the Nimzo. White develops sensibly - but has aggressive intentions in mind! On this DVD, I will tell you everything you need to know to play this way as White, but the DVD will also be of interest to players who are unsure what to do against 3 Nf3 - giving you a repertoire with Black as well. A number of secret and deadly novelties are included on this DVD. I believe that some of these ideas have the power to gain the full point - even at top GM level. The main idea of this DVD is to present the opening in a fun yet educational way, so that by the time you have finished watching, you will no longer fear playing against the Nimzo-Indian defence, but rather relish the prospect!

The complex Najdorf
The complex Najdorf
by Viktor Bologan
Strategy, combinations, attack and defence, sacrifices and marvellous manoeuvres – exciting chess is all about the Najdorf!
€29.90

When choosing an opening repertoire, it is common to consider two types of variations. One is usually a solid opening, like 1...e5 against 1.e4, with plenty of strategical ideas and quiet paths of play. However, there are of course days when you want to play for a win with Black, when you want to bear down on your opponent’s position with a potentially crushing attack. The Najdorf is perfect for just such occasions – and it’s no coincidence that Garry Kasparov played it the most out of all the variations in the Sicilian – the opening served him well throughout his brilliant career. I myself have played it with both colours, but even I discover more to its endless depths every day! Strategy, combinations, attack and defence, sacrifices and marvellous manoeuvres – exciting chess is all about the Najdorf!
