The Sicilian Dragon 1 & 2

The Dragon is one of Black’s most daring openings, leading to fascinating positions with opposite castling and strong mutual attacks. This DVD provides a complete and up to date repertoire to help Black to score with the Dragon. Daring exchange sacrifices are mixed with in-depth analysis of Black’s most reliable defences to give Black numerous options to play. The DVD includes games from the world’s elite, correspondence games and even enginegames to bring you up to speed with current developments in the Dragon. Volume one of the DVD deals with 9 Bc4, White’s sharpest option, and shows how Black can counter this ambitious try by White with the main lines of the Soltis variation (12…h5), which was played by Magnus Carlsen regularly as well. The DVD is aimed at the ambitious tournament player who wants a sharp but well founded repertoire that puts immediate pressure on his opponent. But it is also for all chessplayers who want to know more about the secrets of what might well be the sharpest of all chess openings.

Nimzo-Indian Powerbook 2018

The Nimzo-Indian Powerbook 2018 is a comprehensive special opening book that allows you to check your opening lines and search for promising additions to your repertoire.

Anyone who wants to play the Nimzo-Indian must also be prepared to enter the Queen’s Indian (or the Bogo-Indian) and the Catalan. For that reason we have included the whole E00-E59 complex in our “Complete Nimzo-Indian Powerbook 2018”. It is based, e.g., on 80 000 games from the Mega Database plus correspondence games. But the lion’s share is made up of the 565 000 games from the engine room, where the Queen’s Indian enjoys greater popularity than the Nimzo-Indian.

The Nimzo-Indian Powerbook 2018 is an opening book that you can use with your Fritz or ChessBase program. It does not come with a database - so there are no games included.
