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.

Compared to the advice often given to beginners “develop the knights before the bishops” the Four Knights Game must actually look like the ideal opening. It was also very popular at the start of the 20th century, but then it lost many of its adherents on account of Rubinstein’s gambit continuation 4.Bb5 Nd4. Interest in it was not re-awakened until the 1990s when the English grandmasters John Nunn and Nigel Short took up the opening.=> More products: Four Knights Game
