The Four Knights has a rich and dis tinguished history. Like a fine wine, the Four Knights only improves with age, establishing itself as an extremely effective way of meeting 1...e5. On the outside this opening seems deceptively quiet, yet apparently natural moves can often lead to some devastating attacks. This DVD takes you through everything that you need to know in order to play this opening with confidence, starting with calm options and then moving on to the outrageous Belgrade opening. This DVD will have something for everyone! Grandmaster Simon Williams invites you to share his experiences and knowledge, studying typical ideas and plans that you need to know, rather than relying on memorising long theoretical variations - ideal for players wanting to learn in a simple yet effective way.
