For young and developing players a very important piece of advice is to study open positions and to understand the value of coordination of the pieces plus the role of the centre. These goals can be achieved just by answering 1.e4 with 1...e5. Some players claim that these positions are not sharp and interesting enough, and they believe that different Sicilians should be one’s choice, but that is not completely correct. The idea of this DVD is to show that 1.e4 e5 can be extremely entertaining and that Black can obtain interesting counterplay in every opening. There are two lines proposed in the Spanish systems plus the most active alternatives against other white choices. Video running time: 6 h 48 min.

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
