  2. Ace Up Your Sleeve - 1. d4 repertoire - by IM Michael Rahal

    Regular Price: $99.00

    Special Price $49.95

    In recent years, openings theory has evolved so much that it’s become increasingly difficult to decide between the tangle of lines, analysis and variations. It's a struggle even for Grandmasters to keep up with it all, not to mention club players! It’s no coincidence that the World Champion Magnus Carlsen often plays secondary lines to achieve a less-known middle game position and sidestep his opponent’s preparation. His incredible quality often allows him to accumulate small advantages in the late middlegame and endgame which he then converts to victory. But how many Carlsen’s are there in the world?

  4. Panov Attack Caro-Kann defense (3 video series)
    $8.97
    GM Boris Alterman looks at the Panov-Botvinnik Attack against the Caro-Kann Defense - a line that can also be transposed to from many openings, including the Queen's Gambit and the Nimzo-Indian Defense The Panov-Botvinnik Attack has a unique important place in chess lore. After Capablanca adopted the Caro-Kann, it assumed a status as the solid way for Black to escape attacking efforts of e4 players. But Vasily Panov, a Soviet master, theoretician and Chess correspondent for Izvestia, took a different view of the situation and decided to test Blacks mettle with the direct action of 1 e4 c6 2 d4 d5 3 exd5 cxd5 4 c4. Mikhail Botvinnik picked up on this and quickly formed it into a potent weapon that has since become the choice of determined king pawn players. Learn More

  6. Scotch Game (10 part series)
    $29.90
    Ronen's Opening Survey: Scotch Game (10 part series). C45: Scotch game 4. … Bc5, Scotch game 5. Nxf6. The Scotch game with 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 first came to prominence when one of the leading players of his day, Scottish barrister John Cochrane (who also came up with the Cochrane variation against the Petroff's with 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nf6 3 Nxe5 d6 4 Nxf7!?) suggested it for his London Chess Club team when they took on Edinburgh Chess Club in what went on to become a famous correspondence match in 1824. When London first played it, they got a great position - but Cochrane had to leave for India and they could't convert their advantage, and drew. Edinburgh then opted to play the new idea in the next game and won - so the opening was named in their honor. However the Scotch lay dormant for the best part of a century at elite level until Garry Kasparov sensationally brought it back into fashion when he used it to ruffle up Karpov during their 1990 world title match. Since then, the venerable Scotch has had a new lease of life. And in a new series of Ronen's Opening Survey, our resident theoretical guru, GM Ronen Har-Zvi shows us just how potent a good Scotch can be. Learn More
  7. Chess Openings Wizard & Bookup Professional:  Prepare openings, endgames and tactics
    $197.00
    Chess Openings Wizard is a downloadable program based on Bookup, the program used for more than 35 years to teach and prepare openings, endgames and tactics. COW has the usual functions one expects in chess software (sharp graphics, chess engines for nearly instant gradmaster level opinions, the ability to sort and search millions of PGN games). However, COW is distinct from game database software. In COW, all of these functions revolve around trees of positions that form opening theory. Rather than point out what games the moves belong to, COW is more useful when you want to know the best move(s) in the position, what is the optimum value of the position with best play, what authors say about the position for both sides, what super grandmasters play against other super grandmasters in each position.

  17. the Petroff Defence (12 part series)
    $35.88
    New Ideas in…: the Petroff Defence (12 part series). C42: Petrov: Nimzovich attack ,Petrov: Cozio (Lasker) attack /Kaufmann attack/French attack, Petrov: classical attack ,Petrov: classical attack, Jaenisch variation. The Petroff Defence (sometimes called the Russian Defence, and named after Russia's Alexander Petrov, 1794-1867) is considered as one of Black's most reliable and solid methods of meeting the king's pawn opening. It is easy to play and an excellent choice for someone looking for an alternative to the Scotch Opening, the Italian Game and the 'Spanish torture' of the Ruy Lopez. Until a few years ago, the Petroff was an opening that was favored by only a few top Grandmasters, including Anatoly Karpov and Artur Yusupov. However, the last few years have seen a dramatic rise in its popularity, and it now provides battlefields for many top clashes of the modern elite players, including Anand, Kramnik, Leko, Topalov, and Shirov. And in the latest of his "New Ideas in..." series, GM Ronen Har-Zvi, takes a closer look under the microscope at the solid Petroff. Learn More

  20. Yugoslav Attack, Dragon Sicilian (8 part series)

    New Ideas in…: Yugoslav Attack, Dragon Sicilian (8 part series). B76, B77, B78: Sicilian: dragon, Yugoslav attack, 7...O-O ; Sicilian: dragon, Yugoslav attack, Rauser variation ; Sicilian: dragon, Yugoslav attack, 10.O-O-O ; Sicilian: dragon, Yugoslav attack, 9...Bd7 ;. In the latest of his "New Ideas in...." series for ICC Chess.FM, GM Ronen Har-Zvi investigates the latest developments and trends in the ultimate test of the Sicilian Dragon, the Yugoslav Attack with 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 g6 6. Be3 Bg7 7. f3 0-0 8. Qd2 Nc6 9. Bc4. The Sicilian Dragon is back in vogue once again thanks to its recent addition to Magnus Carlsen's ever-growing arsenal. Years ago, Bobby Fischer gave his seal of approval to the Yugoslav attack, stating it was simply a case of preying open the h-file and sac, sac...mate! But this caveman approach in the Yugoslav Attack is well-worked out, as GM Ronen Har-Zvi shows that the Dragon still breathes fire for black with plenty of counter-play. Learn More

An isolated queen's pawn is often called an isolani. Isolated pawns are usually a weakness because they cannot be protected by other pawns. In practice, an isolated pawn is often a concern when it's placed on a open file, thus becoming an easy target for the enemy's pieces. In this series IM John Watson looks at all kinds of isolated pawns, and teaches us how to deal with this particular structural weakness. Learn More

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

Many are confused what to play against 1 c4 because it has a reputation of being solid - but in a new series of GM Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide, over the next few weeks our guru takes a closer look at three enterprising gambit lines against the English, where an unsuspecting and unprepared White player can easily be intimidated and terrorized: 1) the Bellon Gambit with 1 c4 e5 2 Nc3 Nf6 3 Nf3 e4 4 Ng5 b5!? 2) English Symmetrical with…. 3) the reversed Grand Prix Attack with 1 c4 e5 2 Nc3 Nc6 3 g3 f5 4 Bg2 Nf6 5 d3 Bc5 6 e3 f4!? made famous by Bobby Fischer after his famous 1969 New York Metropolitan League demolition job of Anthony Saidy.

The Orthodox Defense to the Queen's Gambit (1 d4 d5 2 c4 e6 3 Nc3 Nf6 4 Nf3 Be7) is an extremely resilient system for Black, and a solid favorite of not just your average club player but also many of the world's top stars. For many years, the two main lines against it used to be 5 Bg5 or 5 cxd5. But in the early 1970s, Hungary's Lajos Portisch revived an old favorite of English player Joseph Blackburne (1841-1924) of 5 Bf4 with some pioneering new ideas in it. Players such as Kasparov, Karpov, Kramnik, Fischer, Carlsen, Topalov and Ivanchuk added it to their repertoire. And in a new series of Ronen's Opening Survey for Chess.FM, our resident openings expert, GM Ronen Har-Zvi, takes a closer look at the many attractions to the Queen's Gambit Declined with 5 Bf4 and why you also should be adding it to your repertoire.
