The Semi-Slav (1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 e6) can arise via various move orders, has decided World Championships, and is one of Black’s most fascinating replies to 1 d4. The complexity and the many possibilities of the variation have intrigued World Champions and generations of strong players, but amateurs often find the lines too complex to handle. Peter Heine Nielsen, opening expert, second of World Champion Magnus Carlsen, and author of this DVD says: „I want to use my experience to guide you through the labyrinths of this line to help you explore a rich, aggressive, but basically sound opening that offers scope for creativity and allows Black to play for win. I try to improve your understanding of this position in particular and chess in general, and hope to inspire you to play the opening of Champions!“
