  4. Repertoire for Black - English defense (15 part series)
    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!

  15. the Marshall Attack (10 part series)
    New Ideas in…: the Marshall Attack (10 part series). C89: Ruy Lopez: Marshall counter-attack, Ruy Lopez: Marshall counter-attack, 11...c6, Ruy Lopez: Marshall, main line, 12.d2d4. One of the world’s first Grandmasters of chess, 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 Marshall Attack is one of the most important openings in the history of chess and is still deployed with regularity at super Grandmaster level. In current theory the ideas and strategies of both approaches are studied in-depth, and nowadays experts have come to the conclusion that White has no clear superiority in the main theoretical lines. And in the latest of his "New Ideas in..." series, GM Ronen Har-Zvi, takes a closer look under the microscope at Marshall's revolutionary idea. Learn More

  30. GM Varuzhan Akobian: 'Tarraschin' 1 d4
    The Tarrasch Defense to the Queen's Gambit (1 d4 d5 2 c4 e6 3 Nc3 c5) is an excellent choice for Black, especially for players at club level, as it offers the kind of free piece play and contests control of central space that they find easier to comprehend rather than some of the more complex, strategy-based systems. It was a great favorite of World Champions Boris Spassky and Garry Kasparov, not to mention its originator, Dr. Siegbert Tarrasch. The modern- day Tarrasch maven though is the young American GM Varuzhan Akobian, who, in a new 3-part series, outlines a reliable Tarrasch repertoire - and with the added bonus of all being taken from his own practical experience of using it at the highest level.
