  2. The DERLD (5 part series)

    Regular Price: $14.95

    Special Price $7.48

    Ronen's Opening Survey: The DERLD (5 part series). C85: Ruy Lopez: DERLD (Delayed Exchange of the Ruy Lopez Differed). Have you ever considered The DERLD? This was the acronym title given to the Delayed Exchange of the Ruy Lopez Differed with 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 Nf6 5.0-0 Be7 6.Bxc6 by English authors Tony Swift & Len Pickett. While both authors were only top club players for Lewisham, in the early 1970s they collaborated on a series of critically-acclaimed opening research pamphlets (and many magazine articles). Their most famous was the DERLD, and their published analysis on it was even used by an untitled English player to crush one of the world's top theoreticians at the time, GM Ludek Pachman, in just 25 moves during a 1972 London tournament! However its modern-day treatment is considered more positional in nature, has a different character to it than that of the Exchange variation of the Ruy Lopez, and has been played by top GMs such as Mickey Adams and Gata Kamsky.

  3. Ruy Lopez: Breyer variation (5 part series)

    Regular Price: $14.95

    Special Price $7.48

    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".

  4. Lasker defense (5 part series)

    Regular Price: $14.95

    Special Price $7.48

    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.

  5. Archangel Variation (5 part series)

    Regular Price: $14.95

    Special Price $7.48

    New Ideas in…: Archangel Variation (5 part series). C78: Ruy Lopez: Archangelsk (counterthrust) variation. The Archangel Variation 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 a6 4 Ba4 Nf6 5 0-0 b5 6 Bb3 Bb7 derives its name from a group of players from the Russian city of Arkhangelsk, who pioneered the development of the line in the early sixties. Although the twin lines 6...Bc5 (New Archangel) and 5...Bc5 (Moller Defence) are in fact older than the Archangel, both had been forgotten for many decades. But the Nineties saw a revival of these lines thanks to elite players such as Alexei Shirov and Mickey Adams regularly playing it. Learn More
  6. Sicilian OKelly (5 part series)

    Regular Price: $14.95

    Special Price $7.48

    Ronen's Opening Survey: Sicilian O'Kelly #1. B28: Sicilian o'Kelly. The O'Kelly variation in the Sicilian is one of the most rare side interesting alternatives. The idea is to surprise white after 3.d4 with cxd4 4.Nxd4 and then Nf6, followed by e5 and Bb4, after white natural move 5.Nc3. White's main alternatives to 2...a6 should be 3.c4 or c3, transposing into positions where a6 might not assist black that much. All considered, 2. ...a6 is a dangerous weapon for and against any club up to master level players. In this new series Ronen, with his usual precision and detailed examples, explains us all the subtleties of this rare but useful variation of the widely used Sicilian Defense. Learn More

Most of the openings courses insist on what happens right out of the opening, leaving behind the very important part about how to place your pawns during the opening. In this series IM John Watson explains different types of pawn structures, and how they influence the whole game. Learn More
  8. Sicilian (5 part series)

    Regular Price: $14.95

    Special Price $7.48

Gm Jonathan Rowson writes about the Sicilian defense: "To my mind there is quite a straightforward explanation. In order to profit from the initiative granted by the first move, White has to make use of his opportunity to do something before Black has an equal number of opportunities of his own. However, to do this, he has to make 'contact' with the black position. The first point of contact usually comes in the form of a pawn exchange, which leads to the opening of the position. So the thought behind 1...c5 is this: OK, I'll let you open the position, and develop your pieces aggressively, but at a price – you have to give me one of your center pawns." IM John Watson, in this fantastic series, goes through all the main variations of this super-studied, yet greatly fascinating opening. Learn More

    Regular Price: $14.95

    Special Price $7.48

    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: Grünfeld Gambit (5 part series) ECO: D84, D85: Grünfeld: Grünfeld gambit accepted, Grünfeld: exchange variation The Grünfeld Defence (named after the Austrian hypermodern master Ernst Grünfeld, 1913-1961) is a dynamic and popular weapon for players who look to counterattack with the black pieces. It is no wonder then that it became a particular favorite of former World Champions Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov. Part 1: Boris takes a closer looks at three critical gambit lines in the Grünfeld Defence, first up being the Grünfeld Gambit Accepted with 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 g6 3 Nc3 d5 4 Bf4 Bg7 5 e3 OO 6 cxd5 Nxd5 7 Nxd5 Qxd5 8 Bxc7. Part 2: Boris takes a closer look at three critical gambit lines in the Grünfeld; the second of which being one of the big main lines of the Exchange variation with 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 g6 3 Nc3 d5 4 cxd5 Nxd5 5 e4 Nxc3 6 bxc3 Bg7 7 Bc4 c5 8 Ne2 Nc6 9 Be3 0-0 10 0-0 Bg4 11 f3 Na5 12 Bd3 cxd4 13 cxd4 Be6 14 d5 Bxa1 15 Qxa1 - an exciting exchange sacrifice credited to the ever-inventive David Bronstein, who first played it on the big stage during the Budapest Interzonal of 1950.

  13. English Openings (5 part series)

    Regular Price: $14.95

    Special Price $7.48

    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: English Openings (5 part series) ECO: A22, A39, A25: English: Bellon gambit, English: symmetrical, main line with d4, English: Sicilian reversed With the London Chess Classic in full-swing, it is fitting we pay homage to the English Opening, made famous by Howard Staunton, who organized the great London International Tournament of 1851, the world's first international chess tournament. 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.

  14. Sveshnikov Sicilian Sacrifices on b5 (5 part series)

    Regular Price: $14.95

    Special Price $7.48

    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: Sveshnikov Sicilian Sacrifices on b5 (5 part series) ECO: B33: Sicilian: Pelikan, Chelyabinsk variation, Sicilian: Sveshnikov variation For years it was known to all as the Sicilian Lasker/Pelikan variation, but the name-change to Sicilian Sveshnikov (1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Nf6 5 Nc3 e5 6 Ndb5 d6 7 Bg5 a6 8 Na3 b5) came into being after it was revived by the Russian Grandmaster Evgeny Sveshnikov. He was the driving force and inspiration of the variation during the early 1970s when he was a young IM - and back then, it was his creative mind who developed this aggressive method of playing as black. Since then, elite stars such as Kasparov, Kramnik, Topalov, Leko, Radjabov and Shirov have all adopted this variation into their arsenal because it often leads to imbalanced positions. There are many methods to combat the Sveshnikov, but one of the most macho involves the early sacrifice of either a knight or a bishop on b5. And in his latest series, GM Boris Alterman checks the status of both the Nxb5 and Bxb5 gambits vs. the Sveshnikov. Learn More

    Ronen's Opening Survey: Sicilian Najdorf Poisoned Pawn (6 Part series). B94: Sicilian: Najdorf, 6.Bg5. Back in the 60s and 70s everybody was playing the Sicilian Najdorf Variation, inspired by the genius of Bobby Fischer. One of the more controversial lines he championed in the mainline was the controversial Poisoned Pawn Variation with 7 …Qb6. After going out of fashion for a period, recently Sicilian aficionados have again resumed the maze-like challenges and complexities of the Fischer favorite, but this time with a new millennium twist of 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Bg5 Nbd7 7. f4 Qb6.

He was an independent thinker at the board, and his original ideas almost single-handedly re-invented the King's Indian Defence in the 1950s. He was even willing to play dynamic gambits in the most important of situations, such as the 1956 Candidates Tournament in Amsterdam, when he shocked Boris Spassky and the chess world with a stunning queen sacrifice in the Sämisch variation with 5.f3 0-0 6.Be3 e5 7.d5 Nh5 8.Qd2 Qh4+!? - with Black getting two bishops and two pawns for the queen in a very unbalanced position. The variation is still unclear to this day, and it makes for a very good surprise weapon to have in your arsenal. And in an extended series of Gambit Guide for Chess.FM, GM Boris Alterman takes a closer look at the Bronstein influence in the Sämisch variation starting with his daring queen sacrifice. Learn More

    Boris Alterman's Gambit Guide: French - Alekhine Gambit (6 part series) ECO: C15: French: Winawer, Alekhine (Maróczy) gambit, French: Winawer, fingerslip variation Through the 1920s and 1930s, former world champion Alexander Alekhine was a force of nature with phenomenal tournament results (he won 25 of 44 tournaments he played during his career). Alekhine's attacking motifs in his games prove even to this day to be highly instructive. And in a new six-part series for Gambit Guide, our intrepid gambit guru, GM Boris Alterman takes a closer look at two very aggressive Alekhine gambits against the normally solid French Winawer. First up will be a four-part series on 1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 Nc3 Bb4 4 Nge2 followed by a two-part series on the apocryphal 'fingerslip' variation, when Alekhine meant to play 1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 Nc3 Bb4 4 e5 c5 5 Bd2 against Flohr at Nottingham 1936, but instead touched his c1 bishop first so the game went 1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 Nc3 Bb4 4 Bd2 dxe4 5 Nxe4 Qxd4 6 Bd3 Bxd2+ 7 Qxd2.

    Special Price $7.48

    Ronen's Opening Survey: Anti-Dutch 2 Bg5 (5 part series). A80: Dutch, 2.Bg5 variation. Players wishing to play the Dutch Defense must certainly pay as much attention to Anti-Dutch systems as they do to the main line, as it is these very lines that can more frequently arise at club level. And one of the most popular is the tricky 1 d4 f5 2 Bg5, a line that’s certainly a blood brother of the Trompowsky Attack. Black has to be extremely careful when facing 2 Bg5, because many up against this line have fallen victim to a miniature with White winning with a crushing attack in under 25 moves. This line is also a favorite in online play, and especially here on ICC! And in a new series of Ronen’s Opening Survey, GM Ronen Har-Zvi explores the cut and thrust of the blood-thirsty Anti-Dutch with 2 Bg5. Learn More
