"Pawns are the soul of chess," once declared the mild-mannered 18th century French musical composer Francois-Andre Philidor, who was also the most famous chess-player of his day. He championed a simple pawn move defense with 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 d6 as an alternative to the more common 2 …Nc6 that was named after him. The Philidor is a dynamic and underrated answer for club and tournament players as it offers an exciting fighting alternative to the lengthy theoretical paths of the Ruy Lopez and Sicilian. And in recent years, it has seen a revival thanks to books such as The Black Lion and the Philidor Files. Learn More
  3. Repertoire for Black - English defense (15 part series)
    $44.85
    Repertoire for Black - English defense (15 part series) Players: Gamota, Karasev, Starostits, Bunzmann, Hirsso, Jyrki, Marchand, Gulko, Hager, Lempert, Partos Czebe, Onischuk, Nakamura, Z.Polgar, Speelman, Farago, Miles, Hertneck, King, Kosten, Bauer, Kleff, Koenig, Pavlov, Kovalenko, Piesina, Kengis, Kempinski, Miles, Lubczynski, Macieja, Watson, Leon Hoyos, Von Loehnysen, Schlemermeyer, Von Loehnysen, Schlemermeyer, Serper, Yermolinsky, Marjanovic, Ivanisevic, Knaak, Planinec, Handke, Bauer, Sher, Lempert, Eljanov, Delchev, Kallai, Hamdouchi, Avrukh, Grabliauskas, Arduman, Gurcan ECO: A10, A40, A50 IM John Watson, with his video course, helps us build a strong and efficient repertoire of openings, for White and for Black. In the previous few lectures, John showed us how to react to White's first move 1.e4 and 1.d4. In this new series our IM shows us how to play against 1.c4. The first opening Watson teaches us is the fianchetto system 1.c4 b6 2. d4 Bb7, which usually transposes to the classic English Defense (1.c4 b6 2. d4 e6), but avoids certain difficult-to-meet lines. By delaying or skipping ...Nf6, Black keeps his strategy flexible, and in most cases the move ...f5 is key to controlling the central light squares and creating counterplay. The result is a dynamic and challenging system which can easily lead to Black seizing the initiative. Don't miss your chance to add another great piece of opening theory to your repertoire!

  44. Marshall Gambit (2 video series)
    $5.98
    One of the world’s first Grandmasters, America’s Frank J. Marshall (1877-1944) left behind a lasting legacy to the chess world with his revered gambit against the Ruy Lopez:  the Marshall Attack with 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 d5! The myth goes that Marshall deliberately kept his analysis secret for seven years before playing it against Capablanca at New York 1918, but this has since been debunked by historians.   Regardless of its origins, it continues to wreck havoc both at club and elite level over 90 years on - and the latest high-profile victim is Ukrainian world No7 Vassily Ivanchuk, who got hit by some stunning new theory in it by Hungary’s Peter Leko at the recently concluded World Team Championship in Ningbo, China. ChessFM’s openings expert, GM Ronen Har-Zvi has comprehensively covered the Marshall Attack during his weekly openings show last year - but in a Gambit Guide special, GM Boris Alterman puts under the microscope Leko’s new novelty in the Marshall Attack that obviously wasn't covered during that particular series.  Learn More
