The Two Knights Defence is one of the oldest opening lines in chess history. The sharp positions, arising after the moves 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.exd5, have intrigued players for many decades! World Champions like Wilhelm Steinitz and Bobby Fischer shaped the opening, and in more recent years, Nigel Short has popularized it. In the main lines, black gambits a pawn – with fascinating consequences. This DVD is aimed at players of both sides, giving an objective overview of all relevant theoretical lines. The DVD also includes a database with model games and an interactive section with memory markers and tactics where the viewer can test his newly acquired knowledge.

After 1.e4 e5 we have the so-called Open Games. Previously this move order was almost obligatory and this is how some of the most famous games in the history of chess began, such as the Immortal and the Evergreen games. Nowadays beginners learn first of all to play the open games, and it is only in this group of openings that we can come across Scholar’s Mate (2.Qh5 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Qxf7 mate). But at the same time 1...e5 is considered to be the most solid continuation of them all and so dominates top level chess.=> More products: Open Games
