IM John Watson is a renowned chess teacher, and with his new show he's going to put at your service his great teaching experience. In these videos, IM Watson is going to help you build your own opening repertoire, explaining the ideas that lie behind the moves; that's it, you won't have to memorize long sequences of moves in order to play your openings! Watson's lectures are going to sharpen your chess-sense, make you aware of what's going on over the 64-square beloved piece of wood (or the few pixels that it takes to see a board on your screen), and get a good "feeling" about your position. Every Tuesday at 3:00pm ICC time, don't miss the new and amazing Chess.FM show: Sharpen your chess-sense with IM John Watson! This week IM Watson continueshis new interesting series, sticking with the 1.e4 repertoire: the immortal French Opening. Learn More
  4. Heisman's Openings and Tabiyas Bundle

    Regular Price: $90.00

    Special Price $34.95

    National Master Dan Heisman, one of the most instructional chess coaches in the world, brings us another winning video collection Openings and Tabiyas.
    Dan shows you in this useful 29-video series what to do after the "normal position" of an opening is reached. It is a different approach to the opening theory; how many times have you reached the limit of your opening theory knowledge to find yourself in doubt about what to do next? Dan likes calling these Tabiyas (what to do in a normal position), and how to plan ahead when the standardized position arising on the board.
  5. Ruy Lopez: Breyer variation (5 part series)
    Ronen's Opening Survey: Ruy Lopez: Breyer variation (5 part series). C94, C95: Ruy Lopez: closed, Breyer defense, Ruy Lopez: closed, Breyer, Borisenko variation, Ruy Lopez: closed, Breyer, Borisenko variation 13.b3, Ruy Lopez: closed, Breyer, Borisenko variation 13.Nf1. Hungarian master Gyula Breyer (1893-1921) was one of the leading members of the hypermodern school of chess theory, but is best remembered for the variation of the Ruy Lopez named after him: 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Re1 b5 7.Bb3 0-0 8.c3 d6 9.h3 Nb8. This line became fashionable in the 1960s, and soon became a big favorite of ex-world champion Boris Spassky and candidate Lajos Portisch during this period. It also received attention from both Kasparov and Karpov during their mighty duels through the 1980s. It then went out of fashion for over 20 years at the elite level, only to now come back in vogue as a new favorite of Norwegian superstar Magnus Carlsen. And in a new series of Ronen's Opening Survey, our resident theoretical guru, GM Ronen Har-Zvi tells us why we could be going back to the future by switching to lines such as the solid and ultrasound Breyer, especially as the Sicilian gets more and more "engined out".

  8. Italian-Koltanowski gambit ((2 part series)
    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: Italian-Koltanowski gambit ((2 part series) ECO: C50 : Giuoco Piano GM Boris Alterman responds to the many requests from ICC members to delve into very aggressive lines such as the Italian-Koltanowski gambit with 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 4. 0-0 Nf6 5. d4!? It looks like a complete throwback to a bygone romantic age of the 19th-century, but, surprisingly, two Super-GMs were slugging it out with it in the very modern setting of the Corus Wijk aan Zee tournament earlier this year, as Sergey Movsesian dusted off this forgotten variation to beat Michael Adams. Could it be a case of Back to the Future with this vicious line being brought back into praxis? Learn More
  9. Alekhine 4-Pawns Attack (2 video series)
    GM Boris Alterman again responds to ICC members who have asked our resident expert in all things gambits what to do in the Alekhine 4-Pawns Attack if Black eschews the big main line with 1. e4 Nf6 2. e5 Nd5 3. c4 Nb6 4. d4 d6 5. f4 dxe5 6. fxe5 Nc6 7. Be3 Bf5 8. Nc3 e6 9. Nf3 Be7 10. d5 Nb4?! His answer? Look no further than a particularly aggressive gambit line with 11. Rc1 f6 12. a3 Na6 13. g4!? - originally a recommendation of the leading Soviet master of his day Alexander Zaitsev (1935-71), and lately given the big thumbs up by another top Russian in Alexander Morozevich!

  12. SimulMaster with GM John Fedorowicz
    GM John The Fed Fedorowicz had a great Simul this month. He lost only three games, of which one cause of a mouse-slip. John is getting used to the time control; in fact, he found himself ahead of time in most of the games. Beating our GM is becoming a true challenge for ICC members, even those who are used to play simuls and are strong players in general. The three members who mastered the Master are chess24, xionoula and Stone-Castle. Kudos to them! Learn More
  13. Damiano gambit (2 part series)
    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: Damiano gambit (2 part series) ECO: C40: Damiano's defense One of the first chess books to be published in Italy, at the height of the Renaissance, was written by the Portuguese master Pedro Damiano back in 1512. In it, he noted that after 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 the reply 2…Nc6 is good, 2…d6 is not so good, and 2…f6 (the opening named after him) is worst. Many believed for years thereafter that the outright refutation of the Damiano to be 3 Nxe5. However, even today, the Damiano with 2…f6?! retains something of a cult underground following. Even Bobby Fischer played the recommended refutation of it during his legendary simultaneous tour of the US in 1964 and could only draw. The shock value alone of playing the Damiano with 2…f6?! in online play has seen a lot of positive results for Black. And following many requests from ICC members on what to do against it, our resident gambit guru, GM Boris Alterman, overviews it in his latest Gambit Guide series for Chess.FM. Learn More
