Original approach and sound credible positions will inspire to learn this opening and You will get positions where your middlegame plan will be clearly outlined. Review by Lazy Chess Player (Unless its ideas and concepts I will not spend the time learning it) This dvd is great way to learn the Kings Indian because it is based on ideas and concepts which are easier to remember then the traditional long variations which are common in the King's Indian Defence There are lots of hidden traps that white can and does fall into just by making what looks like the best and most logical moves. These mistakes are made on the highest level which Roman will demostrate using several of his own games. I was amazed because it seemed like the opening plays itself and as Roman went through his games I was thinking no way this is good for Black then a few moves later white was worse or lost and these are GM's After watching the dvd you will be able to apply right away most of what you learned in your own games Roman created a new way to play Kings Indian verifying his ideas with Rybka There is no reason you can not win games right out of the openning just by following what Roman teaches you. A bonus for me after watching it I found myself using the ideas and principles I learned in other openings Learn More

  38. ICC Wacky Cards
    $9.95
    ICC presents a very special deck of cards: Wacky Cards. Their objective is to introduce the element of luck into chess in order to provide a less competitive and strressful side to the game. Chess is demanding, each player must assume defeat as something individual, and learn to manage negative emotions. When chess is introduced in the school or in the family, there is a danger of giving the competitive side an excessive role. In doing so, some children are frightened or intimidated by the 'life or death' scenario of the game. When using the cards, we introduce a luck factor into the game which helps reduce the competitive component and enhance chess as something fun. The cards also allow a player to occasionally defeat others of higher level. We encourage the sporadic use of these cards in combination with regular chess play and instruction.

    RULES

    1  The deck of cards is placed face down and the chess pieces are placed on a board in their usual starting positions. Used cards are discarded and not used again until all card in the deck are used.
    2  On turn you either play normally or pick a card
    3  If you pick, you must show it and do as instructed. If it can’t do as instructed, you move as you normally would in a game of chess.

    5  Chess rules must be followed. Neither illegal positions nor pawns in the 1st or 8th rank. You can’t leave you king in check.
    6  Check can be given while moving, placing or removing pieces, which ends your turn.
