  2. The Hedgehog (7 part series)
    $20.93
    Ronen's Opening Survey: The Hedgehog (7 part series). A05: English . The Hedgehog is a thoroughly modern defense where flexibility and understanding trumps all. This counter-punching system was a big favorite of the likes of Garry Kasparov, Ljubomir Ljubojevic and Ulf Andersson, and for player’s of the White pieces playing the English Opening, it can still be problematic at the best of times. But the late Polish-American GM Aleksander “Wojo” Wojtkiewicz - who was a feared player of the White pieces - came up with a simple, yet at the same time aggressive plan to “Sonic the Hedgehog” with 1 c4 c5 2 Nf3 Nf6 3 Nc3 e6 4 g3 b6 5 Bg2 Bb7 6 0–0 a6 7 Re1. And in a new series, GM Ronen Har-Zvi returns to look more carefully at Wojo’s system - that led to him scoring many spectacular wins - as a potent weapon in your arsenal to make roadkill out of the prickly Hedgehog.

  3. Scandinavian Gambit (3 video series)
    $8.97
    The Scandinavian or Center Counter with 1 e4 d5 is one of the oldest asymmetric defenses in chess history, dating back to 1475. It became a theory backwater though for many years until it was revitalized and rechristened "the Scandinavian" due to it being adopted by Denmark's Bent Larsen, who defeated World Champion Anatoly Karpov with it. It is now extremely popular at club level, and particularly the line 1 e4 d5 2 exd5 Nf6, the so-called Marshall Gambit (or Scandinavian Gambit) after U.S. Champion Frank Marshall. And in this Gambit Guide series, GM Boris Alterman shows how the "Sizzling Scandinavian" can be a potent weapon for Black. Learn More
  4. Caro-Kann Defense: Fantasy variation (5 part series)
    $11.96
    Ronen's Opening Survey: Caro-Kann Defense: Fantasy variation (5 part series). B12: Caro-Kann: Tartakower (fantasy 3.f3) variation . We all know the classical variation of the Caro-Kann, with 3.Nc3 after 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5, or the modern variation with 3.Nd2, the exchange variation with 3.exd5, and the advance variation with 3.e5, but the fantasy variation with 3.f3 has gained popularity in the last 2-3 years, since when GM Nepomniachtchi used it in some important games that allowed the young Russian talent to win the European Individual Chess Championship in 2010. White fights to keep his central pawns even at the cost of weakening his king, as most of the times his idea will be to caste queen-side. The likes of Ivanchuk, Timofeev, Judit Polgar and Jobava are used to play this variation. The line is mainly considered be aggressive, with play in the center and attack against black's king. GM Ronen Indiana-Jones Har-Zvi, in his 5-video series, takes us through the labyrinth of this interesting variation of the super-famous Caro-Kann Defense. Learn More

  8. Comprehensive Beginners Course
    $119.00
    Most beginners have problems improving at chess because they simply lack the foundation needed to build upon. They have bits and pieces of knowledge, but that’s not enough to see a sustainable progress. Those beginners tend to study wrong things, in the wrong way. They are spending countless hours on openings and tactics, while what they really need is getting the fundamentals straight. And I can’t blame them… it’s not their fault! There is a huge gap in chess courses. Learn More

  11. Repertoire for Black - The Chigorin (7 part series)
    $20.93
    Repertoire for Black - The Chigorin (7 part series) Players: ECO: D07 Russian Grandmaster Mikhail Chigorin apparently valued the bishop pair less than most chess masters; some say he even preferred knights to bishops. This is probably why he developed the Defense named after him, to contrast the Queen's Gambit (1. d4 d5 2. c4 Nc6). The Cigoring Defense actually violates several classical principles: Black does not maintain the center pawn at d5, the c-pawn is blocked, and Black must be willing to trade a bishop for a knight; nonetheless this opening is considered playable for Black. In this video series IM John Watson investigates this interesting opening. Learn More

    Ronen's Opening Survey: Lasker defense (5 part series). D56: QGD: Lasker defense, QGD: Lasker defense, main line ,QGD: Lasker defense 8.Bg3, QGD: Lasker defense, Teichmann variation. The Lasker Defense (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Be7 4.Nf3 Nf6 5.Bg5 h6 6.Bh4 0-0 7.e3 Ne4) in the Queen's Gambit is one of those openings where the idea of "black to equalize" is seen in full force with the exchange of some minor pieces. It was the main weapon of Emanuel Lasker in his title defense against the American champion Frank Marshall in 1907, hence the name, and recently received a revival by being adopted by Vishy Anand in his title defense earlier this year against challenger Veselin Topalov. And in a new series of Ronen's Opening Survey, Chess.FM's resident openings expert, GM Ronen Har-Zvi, overviews the Lasker Defense in light of new interest shown in it following Anand's recent adoption of it.

  15. Sicilian: Moscow Variation (7 part series)
    $20.93
    New Ideas in…: Sicilian: Moscow Variation (7 part series). B51, B52: Sicilian: Canal-Sokolsky (Nimzovich-Rossolimo, Moscow) attack. Playing the White side of the Sicilian is a tricky business these days with all that main-line theory to remember. Indeed, if White is looking to present Black with some real problems while still avoiding mountains of theory, then the Anti-Sicilian Bb5 lines – more specifically, the Rossolimo (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5) and the Moscow (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bb5+) – might just be the way to go. They are easy to play and often can resemble a Ruy Lopez - not what Black is looking for. Even players such as Anand, Carlsen and Svidler regularly use it - and with excellent results. So in his latest series “New Ideas In….” GM Ronen Har-Zvi examines the Anti-Sicilian Bb5 lines. Learn More

Again against 1.e4, one of the most used replies is 1. … c6, the Caro-Kann. The Caro–Kann is a common defense against the King's Pawn Opening and is classified as a "Semi-Open Game" like the Sicilian Defense and French Defense, although it is thought to be more solid and less dynamic than either of those openings.

  25. Smith-Morra Gambit
    $2.99
    The Smith-Morra Gambit against the Sicilian Defense (1 e4 c5 2 d4 cxd4 3 c3 dxc3 4 Nxc3!?) is perhaps not common in grandmaster chess, but at club level it can be a very potent attacking weapon.  The gambit is named after two players, Pierre Morra from France (1900-1969) and Ken Smith (1930-1999) of the Dallas Chess Club, who popularized it to the masses by writing nine books and fifty articles about it. At grandmaster level, the Nge7 variations are seen as best play against it - but at the recent US Open in Orlando, one of the world’s top grandmasters, Loek van Wely of The Netherlands, proved to be the highest-profile victim yet for the Smith-Morra, as he lost in a spectacular attacking game to IM Marc Esserman.  Learn More

In this series, John tackles the structures that can happen in the Queen's Gambit Declined: 1. d4 d5; 2.c4 e6. The 'QGD' is one of the most played openings, either in classic times and nowadays, with a lot of different variations. Declining the Queen Gambit, Black goes for a strong point in the center, whereas by playing 2. … dxc4 (Queen's Gambit accepted), he would surrender the center. this is why the QGD is considered a 'closed game'.

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".
