The Leningrad System of the Dutch is characterized by an early fianchetto of Black’s King Bishop. Thanks to the uncompromising and controversial nature of Black´s first move, 1...f5, this will always lead to sharp and difficult play. On this ChessBase DVD, International Master Andrew Martin makes a compelling case for playing the Leningrad in competitive games and demonstrates that this is the ideal opening for players willing to embrace risk and who like to WIN. Bent Larsen once famously remarked that the Dutch Defence brings out “the chicken” in a lot of opponents. Time and again on this DVD we will see what he means. Maybe Petrosian rubbed his hands with glee at the thought of facing 1...f5, but for the average player the Dutch can be a nasty shock. Video running time: 4 h 10 min. This Fritztrainer is also running under Pocket Fritz 3!
