ChessBase Magazine 167
Enjoy the high points of Norway Chess 2015 and FIDE GP Khanty-Mansyisk with high-class annotations and “Round-up-shows” with Daniel King (video). 14 opening articles with lots of new ideas. Training sessions from the opening trap to pawn endings!
€19.95

Highlights:

Khanyty-Mansiysk: The fourth and last stage of the FIDE Grand Prix ended with victory shared between Caruana, Nakamura and Jakovenko. This was also the order in the overall classification. Victor on tiebreak in Khanty-Mansiysk was Dmitry Jakovenko. The Russian has analysed for us his game against Giri. Mihail Marin has prepared a detailed survey of the openings used in the games. In addition you can also find on the DVD seven daily summaries by Daniel King.

Norway Chess: This year’s Norway Chess was even stronger, since it was played in the framework of the Grand Chess Tour. Magnus Carlsen had a disastrous start (half a point from four rounds), and the world champion finished in 8th place – and that in his home tournament! Veselin Topalov took his chance and pushed Anand and Nakamura into second place. The American has commented for us on his game with Aronian. In addition you can also find on the DVD all nine daily summaries by Daniel King.

14 opening articles with new repertoire ideas

Master Class Vol. 5: Emanuel Lasker
Master Class Vol. 5: Emanuel Lasker
by Dr. Karsten Müller, Mihail Marin, Oliver Reeh, Niclas Huschenbeth
On this DVD our authors show the openings, tactics, endgames and strategy of the second World Champion Emanuel Lasker.
€29.90

The name Emanuel Lasker will always be linked with his incredible 27 years reign on the throne of world chess. In 1894, at the age of 25, he had already won the world title from Wilhelm Steinitz and his record number of years on the throne did not end till 1921 when Lasker had to accept the superiority of Jose Raul Capablanca. But not only had the only German world champion so far seen off all challengers for many years, he had also won the greatest tournaments of his age, sometimes with an enormous lead. The fascinating question is, how did he manage that? Previously the answer frequently given was – psychology and luck. But this thesis has been refuted by authors who have to be taken seriously. Lasker’s secrets are obviously to be sought elsewhere.

Najdorf Powerbook 2015
Najdorf Powerbook 2015
The Najdorf Powerbook 2015 is based on a totally incredible number of games: 1.8 million! The lion’s share is provided by the engine room on playchess.com, with the addition of 93 000 games from human experts.
€9.90

Anyone playing the Najdorf Variation is treading in the footsteps of Fischer, Kasparov, Anand, Gelfand and Topalov. In recent years there has been an enormous amount of development in this opening, driven by young players such as Vachier-Lagrave, Wojtaszek, Giri and Dominguez-Perez. These days new ideas in the opening are conceived above all with the support of engines. And it is not rare for tomorrow's theory to start with an "Engine against Engine" contest in the computer chess engine room on playchess.com. The new Najdorf Powerbook 2015 combines both: the latest state of theory based on 93 000 master games with more than 1,726,000 high class Najdorf games from the engine room on playchess.com. There 6.Be3 has long since taken over from the move preferred by humans, 6.Bg5. One of the main variations continues as follows: 6...e5 7.Nb3 Be6 8.f3 (if you do not like 6.Be3 Ng4, you can also start with 6.f3) 8...Be7 9.Qd2 Nbd7 10.0-0-0 0-0 11.g4 b5 12.g5 b4

Original and aggressive: 1...b6 for practical players
Original and aggressive: 1...b6 for practical players
by Nigel Davies
Spruce up your opening repertoire with an early …b6! Let GM Nigel Davies show you how to transpose into the lines of your choice and how to through your opponent out of his opening book right away!
€29.90

The Owens Defence, with 1...b6, is part of a nexus of systems that are both complex and little explored, offering practical players the opportunity to get out of the book early on and pose new and difficult problems. Transpositions into other openings and structures are common, making it an ideal weapon for playing to win as Black against booked up opposition. On this DVD Nigel Davies shows how ...b6 lines can be used to enhance an existing French Defence repertoire (for example with 1.d4 e6 2.c4 b6!?) and provide answers to 1.Nf3 and 1.c4. He also shows how 1...b6 can be used as a defence against 1.e4, for players who want to play for a win and do not mind taking risks.
