Openings #1 The Open Games

Every game begins with the opening - and even sometimes ends there! That doesn't have to be the case. With the ChessBase tutorials, you can rapidly get up to speed. "Openings Vol. 1: Open Games (1.e4 e5)" is the first part of a five-volume series on the basics of chess openings. Here you will learn from experienced coaches and experts just what you absolutely need to know about the individual areas, which basic plans are followed, how to play them and what pitfalls to watch out for. In 23 video lessons you will learn everything you need to know about the King's Gambit, the Vienna Game, the Italian, the Evans Gambit, the two-knight game, the Scottish, the Steinitz and Berlin defences, the Open Spanish or the exchange variation, Marshall, Philidor and Russian and much more.

Do you know the typical mistakes made by club players when choosing their opening? They follow fashionable variations; they stick to one opening because it's the only one they've learnt at some point; or they play secondary variations out of fear of their opponent's supposed knowledge.

Things do not have to be this way. Play what suits you. Let yourself be inspired! The series of opening tutorials in the new, web-based ChessBase books format offers you a highly competent and innovative guide to opening theory.

The essential plans and ideas are presented for all openings in the "Open Games" section (1.e4 e5). In 23 compact videos, top grandmasters show the essence of what is at stake. There are actual master games to replay, and tactical exercises and typical traps for each opening. At the conclusion, you will discover for which type of player we particularly recommend each opening! The ChessBase opening tutorial gives you all the information you need to make a considered and well-founded opening choice!
