Meet the English Opening

Essentially, the English Opening usually leads to reversed positions in which the first player enjoys the extra tempo. Then why not meet this 1.c4 move with 1…e5 and play the reversed Sicilian? Indeed, this is one of Black’s most reliable options, and one that leads to positions which are full of life. Practically all the top players have tried it in important tournament games, and some of them like S. Karjakin, V. Kramnik and V. Topalov even tend to give preference to such an approach. In this 60 Minutes video you will find a complete repertoire for the second player based on the move 1…e5 against White’s most popular approach - the Reversed Dragon setup. Bulgarian GM Dejan Bojkov uses very recent top GM games to highlight the trends in the line and to explain the ideas behind Black’s development.

Safe and active with the Dutch Stonewall
Safe and active with the Dutch Stonewall
by Leonid Kritz
The popular Stonewall with f5, e6, d5 and c6 earned its name because in practice it turned out to be a legendary defensive weapon. But if you play the setup correctly (that means with ...b6, ...Bb7 etc.), you can also quickly become active.
