My Secret Weapon: 1.b3
My Secret Weapon: 1.b3
by Wesley So
Meanwhile, 1.b3 has also found its way into the practice of today’s world elite, and now finally a modern top ten player has taken on the subject for ChessBase: none other than Grandmaster Wesley So!
€34.90

The Nimzowitsch-Larsen Attack with 1.b3 (or 1.Nf3 followed by 2.b3) is a system, rather neglected by theorists, which nevertheless can be a forceful weapon in the hands of an ambitious white player. Even Bobby Fischer tried this opening in various games, sometimes preferring it to his beloved 1.e4, and its greatest advocate was the legendary Danish fighter Bent Larsen. Meanwhile, 1.b3 has also found its way into the practice of today’s world elite, and now finally a modern top ten player has taken on the subject for ChessBase: none other than Grandmaster Wesley So!

My Black Secrets in the Modern Italian
My Black Secrets in the Modern Italian
by Wesley So
The Italian Game is considered a sound but quiet opening without early trades, giving rise to rich positions where plans are more important than forced variations. So shows black's plans on this DVD.
€34.90

The Italian Game is considered a sound but quiet opening without early trades, giving rise to rich positions where plans are more important than forced variations — in short, an ideal avenue to outplay your opponent without having to learn much theory. But how should you approach new positions and keep a clear head in view of so many playable possibilities? The best way is this: you sit down next to a world class grandmaster and just listen to him!

London System Powerbook 2018
London System Powerbook 2018
What is the trend in the London System? To play with or without Nf3? You can find the answers in the completely new powerbook - based on more than 187 000 games, most of them sourced in the engine room of playchess.
€9.90

The completely new Powerbook London System 2018 is based on games which start in different ways and belong to different ECO codes, but where in each case White plays d4 and Bf4 and also does without c4. This way of starting the game has long since cast off its image as purely an opening for amateurs; world class players such as So, Kramnik, Grischuk, Vachier-Lagrave, Aronian and Karjakin play the opening with both colours and the London book is based on 44 games by Magnus Carlsen. In order to guarantee a high level of reliability for the statistics, the threshold for accepting games was set at a very high level. Thus the basis for the Powerbook consists of 176 000 engine games as well as 11 000 games from Mega 2018 + Correspondence Database 2018.

French Defence Powerbook 2018
French Defence Powerbook 2018
For the French Powerbook we once again used above all high grade material: “only” just 20 000 games from Mega and from correspondence chess, but these are of high quality. Added to that are 582 000 games from the engine room on playchess.com.
€9.90

For the French Powerbook we once again used above all high quality material: “only” just 20 000 games from Mega and from correspondence chess, but these have been selected for their quality. Added to these are 582 000 games from the engine room of playchess.com. The statistics in the Winawer, especially in the sharp 7.Qg4 Qc7 variation, are not very tempting from Black’s point of view and you can understand why the top players so rarely adopt this setup. Things look quite different in the Steinitz-Variation. If we take, e.g., the most frequently played continuations for both (from move 1 on): 4.e5 Nfd7 5.f4 c5 6.Nf3 Nc6 7.Be3 cxd4 8.Nxd4 Bc5 9.Qd2 0-0 10.0-0-0 a6 11.Qf2 Bxd4 12.Bxd4 Nxd4 13.Qxd4 b5 14.Bd3 Rb8 15.Kb1 b4 16.Ne2

Italian Powerbook 2018
Italian Powerbook 2018
The Italian Powerbook 2018 will consist predominantly of engine games (783 000), with in addition top class material from Mega and a small number of correspondence games (16 000).
€9.90

The Italian is trendy. World class players such as Magnus Carlsen, Wesley So, Viswanathan Anand and Sergej Karjakin play this classic opening with both colours. In recent years there has been an enormous amount of development and it is far from being over. Anyone wishing to adopt the Italian in his or her repertoire – be it with White or with Black – can use this special Powerbook to get a good head start. It is based especially in those variations with the quiet setup of d3, c3 (Giuoco Pianissimo) on huge numbers of games, which make of the book a real treasure trove. Thus it is possible to study a move only rarely played by elite grandmasters, namely the early Bg5, on the basis of huge numbers of cases. Also the modern early ...a5, which Wesley So deals with at length on his DVD, can be found in the Powerbook in various variations with numbers running into four or even five figures

ChessBase Magazine Extra 181
ChessBase Magazine Extra 181
30.695 games and videos by Adrian Mikhalchishin, Georgios Souleidis & Robert Ris
€12.99

30.695 games played between October and December 2017. The Open Ruy Lopez will always have its supporters and Adrian Mikhalchishin is convinced of that. The Ukrainian top trainer analyses the game Yu Yangyi-Najer, Moscow 2017. The Russian European champion of 2015 exchanged on d2 early on and obtained a secure position.
For a few years now there has been the nice tradition of choosing the game of the season after the close of the German Bundesliga. For 2016/17 the choice went to Wagner-Nikolic. Georgios Souleidis shows you how the young German player outplayed the experienced grandmaster in an attack on the king.
For a long time The King’s Indian was Bobby Fischer’s favourite opening. At the 1960 Chess Olympiad his Chilean opponent Rene Letelier Martner built up a strong centre. But the young American did not take long to first of all eliminate the central pawns before going on to ensnare his opponent’s uncastled king in a mating net.

How can the advantage of the new stronghold be exploited? All this and much more is shown on this DVD. Special attention is paid to the technique of piece transfer which helps to coordinate different attacks much more effectively.

The Fort Knox Variation in the French Defence
The Fort Knox Variation in the French Defence
by Lawrence Trent
If you're one of those French Defence players who has been desperately searching for a reliable and easy-to-learn system against White's two main 3rd moves (3.Nd2 or 3.Nc3) then this is the 60 Minutes for you! The Fort Knox variation (3...dxe4 4.Nxe4 Bd7!
€9.90

If you're one of those French Defence players who has been desperately searching for a reliable and easy-to-learn system against White's two main 3rd moves (3.Nd2 or 3.Nc3) then this is the 60 Minutes for you! Presenting: the Fort Knox variation (3...dxe4 4.Nxe4 Bd7!?). This opening does exactly what it says on the tin! By developing the notoriously bad French c8-bishop to c6, followed by a natural and methodical development of the kingside pieces, Black manages to erect a super-solid structure — like Fort Knox — that is designed to frustrate White, who will often overextend, leaving himself exposed in his quest for glory. This variation has been endorsed by some of the most classical players (like Karpov), as well as the most creative (like Jobava) Grandmasters in the world with fantastic success. It’s a perfect choice for those with a positional style of chess who enjoy counterattacking and taking advantage of overzealous opposition.

Fritz 16 - English Version
Fritz 16 - English Version
Fritz 16 is looking forward to playing with you, and you’re certain to have a great deal of fun with him too. Tense games and even well-fought victories await you with the “Easy play” and “Assisted analysis” modes.
€69.90

When is chess the most enjoyable? When you win! When Fritz entered his first tournaments some 25 years ago, humans still had a real chance of taking the engine down. Only a few years down the line, Fritz was already beating grandmasters left, right and center, but ever since his 4:2 victory over Kramnik in 2006, Fritz has been considered unbeatable. Who would want to play against him? In the case of Fritz 16, however, playing against an engine is now once again the very definition of fun! A host of features, including "Assisted Analysis", which gives you discreet visual hints as you move, and emoticons, which show Fritz’s mood, are there to help you. Even with little knowledge of chess, you can enjoy many an exciting game, and more importantly, victory, against Fritz. If things don’t work out, Fritz 16 shows you the combinations you might have missed directly after the game with the handy “Tactical Analysis” function, or you can dive right into "Easy Play" calculation training to hone your skills. Fritz doesn’t come up short when it comes to playing strength either: the new multiprocessor engine was developed by star programmer Vas Rajlich ("Rybka") and is up there with the global elite.
