Many club players have their favourite pet opening variations which aren’t necessarily main lines. It’s important to know how to handle these variations as your opponent will likely know his systems well. In this DVD I provide a detailed Black repertoire against many of these Offbeat Opening choices. The lines I have covered include Pseudo – Trompowsky (1.d4 d5 2. Bg5), London Systems (1.d4 with an early Bf4), Torre Attack (1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 e6 and 3. Bg5), Veresov (1.d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 3. Bg5), Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (1.d4 d5 2. e4), Kings Indian Attack (1.Nf3 2.g3 3. Bg2), 1.b4, 1.b3, 1.f4, 1.g3 and 1.g4. I have gone into a lot of detail to provide a repertoire against each system, so if you know that your opponent plays a certain line, you can quickly watch the relevant chapter of the DVD for my recommendation of how to meet that variation. The subjects covered in this DVD are an essential part of any player’s opening knowledge.r

If Black does not reply symmetrically to 1.d4 by moving his own d-pawn, what arise are the Semi-closed Openings. These comprise for a large part the Indian Openings – the first move is 1...Nf6, which first of all prevents e2-e4. There are, however, some alternatives. The best-known of these is the Dutch Defence – 1...f5. Over and above all that, Black also temporarily sidestep the struggle for the centre with moves such as 1...e6 and 1...g6.=> More products: Semi-Closed Games
