Unorthodox Chess Openings
Unorthodox Chess Openings

How many times have you been caught off guard by a seemingly inferior and unusual opening system that later turns out to be an especially strong one? Unorthodox openings can be a real asset to anyone’s opening repertoire and they often do not contain much theory, making them easy to master for your next important tournament. In the present DVD, FM Valeri Lilov devotes 24 lectures to various unorthodox openings - some more popular with super GMs like Alexander Morozevich and others less known - yet all aiming at one and the same goal: to strengthen your opening repertoire and provide you with more weapons for the opening stage. The DVD is naturally divided into two parts and half of the lectures explore openings for White, while the other half focus on great unorthodox systems for Black. The Chigorin Defence, the Chicago Gambit, and Grob’s Attack are among the systems included for White. On the other hand, the Hippopotamus Defence and the Elephant Gambit, both for Black, bear the names of frightening animals. FM Valeri Lilov effectively teaches the best plans and ideas in each of these unique openings and guarantees success with each and every one of them. Video running time: 5 hrs 16 min.

Later, according to Black’s setup, things continue with f4 or even Rac1, b4 and play on the queenside.
