  3. Thought Process Errors by NM Dan Heisman
    $49.95

    What is "thought process"? It's related to thinking, of course, but there is a difference between thinking and thought process. In a sense, we can break "chess thinking" into three different types, each representing a different class where you may make errors. Let's put process in class one, knowledge in area two, and analytical in class three. The latter usually occurs at a higher level, but it's useful to know how errors during analysis can happen. Comes with one-month ICC membership bonus. Watch Introduction Video FREE.

  19. Ace Up Your Sleeve - 1. d4 repertoire - by IM Michael Rahal
    $99.00
    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?

    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!

  27. Rook Endgames by Ron W. Henley
    $39.95

    GM Ron W. Henley is an American Grandmaster best known for his role as second, analyst and trainer for former World Chess Champion Anatoly Karpov in several matches in the 1990s! As Ron puts it: “Rooks are the last pieces to come out and develop, so it's easy to see why more than 50% of the endings in a chess game are rook endings. Rook endings should be mastered by any chess player who wants to improve their game and their results”. In this elegantly crafted video series, you will be guided on a journey to Rook endgame excellence. The video series is divided into 14 videos. Learn More

  29. The Sicilian Nimzovitch (8 part series)
    $23.92
    Ronen's Opening Survey: The Sicilian Nimzovitch. B29: Sicilian: Nimzovich-Rubinstein; Rubinstein counter-gambit. The Sicilian Nimzovich - 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nf6 - is a rare and surprising line in the endless ocean of Sicilian lines. It is not played by the very top players almost at all, yet we can see some strong GMs playing that: Hikaru Nakamura and German top player Arkadij Naiditsch for example, and several other strong GMs. Black main plan is to attack white central pawn immediately, in something that resembles the Alekhine defense. The Sicilian Nimzovich is a surprising and dangerous weapon for almost any level. GM Ronen Har-Zvi, with his usual precise and detailed analysis, and with numerous examples of games, guides us through the pros and cons of this unusual variant of the ever-green Sicilian defense.

  30. French: Rubinstein variation (7 part series)
    $20.93
    New Ideas in…: French: Rubinstein variation (7 part series). C10: French: Rubinstein variation 3… dxe4. With over 90% of White players opting for either 3 Nc3 or Nd2 against the French Defense, many players like the idea of the option of an easy-to-play sideline rather than the theory-trodden paths of the Winawer or Tarrasch variations. A simple solution is the Rubinstein variation with 3 ...dxe4 that can be deployed against both the big main-lines of 3 Nc3 and 3 Nd2 and has easy development and no pawn structure weaknesses for Black. And from there, there's also the solid Fort Knox variation with 4 ...Bd7 or the newer (neo-Rubinstein) Katalymov's variation with 4 ..Qd5. And in his latest series of "New Ideas In....", GM Ronen Harzvi shows just how easy and how handy the Rubinstein variation can be. Learn More

    Ronen's Opening Survey: Classical King's Indian with 7 … exd4 (7 part series). E93: King's Indian: orthodox variation. Ronen's show "Opening Survey" follows carefully the most recent trends in the chess world. Lately the King's Indian has been suffering big time, with GM Bacrot scoring 0 out 3 in the first rounds of the Biel Chess Festival, losing all his King's Indian games; it's time for our opening expert GM Ronen Har-Zvi to suggest ideas and opinions on this important piece of chess opening theory. In this new series Ronen will address the classical King's Indian with a more dynamic approach, opening the center and playing fast: Kramnik scored a fantastic win in Dortmund against Jan Gustafsson this year with the variation Ronen is taking in consideration in this series. Let's try and keep the King's Indian alive, with GM Ronen Har-Zvi! Learn More
  33. The Vienna Opening in the QGD (7 part series)
    $20.93
    Ronen's Opening Survey: The Vienna Opening in the QGD (7 part series). D37: QGD: 4.Nf3. The Vienna QGD is a very important part of the Ragozin opening - ECO D37-D39. This opening has been used in recent years by many of the top players, including Aronian, Topalov, Anand Morozevich and many more. By capturing on c4 with his d pawn, black immediately goes after white's center, deviating from the normal positional play after white himself plays cxd5. A very energetic opening for any level! Let's watch GM Ronen's shows, and learn all the tricks and subtleties of this interesting opening. Learn More

Ronen will be with us all the way through the big match, with updates and analysis on the openings and novelties played by World Champion GM Anand and challenger GM Gelfand. Learn More
  35. The Caveman Caro-Kann: Advance variation (7 part series)
    $20.93
    Ronen's Opening Survey: The Caveman Caro-Kann: Advance variation (7 part series). B12: Caro-Kann: advance variation 4.h4 h6 5.g4. Gone are the days when the Advance variation in the Caro-Kann (1 e4 c6 2 d4 d5 3 e5) was thought to be a poor cousin to the French Advance - now it is arguably one of White’s best ways to secure the advantage against the notoriously solid defense. And thanks to the likes of Nigel Short, Mickey Adams, Alexei Shirov and Peter Svidler et al., the White lines became so much more aggressive. These highly aggressive lines (with an early h4, g4 or Ne2) took a direct, almost bludgeoning approach to the game, so much so that it got coined as “The Caveman Caro-Kann: Advance variation.” And in a new series, GM Ronen Har-Zvi trends the developments in all the sharpest lines. Learn More
  36. 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. Learn More
  37. London System (4 part series)
    $20.93
    Ronen's Opening Survey: London System (4 part series). A47: "King's Indian/London System with c4, King's Indian/London System (different games played)". In the King’s Indian Defense, White has to memorize a labyrinth of variations if he hopes to have any real chance at walking away with an advantage. But the London System (1. d4 2. Nf3 3. Bf4) is an excellent way for amateurs to meet the King’s Indian Defense - and for a bit more bite, White can adopt a big Boris Spassky favorite by playing the London System with c4 against the KID. Not only was it a weapon of Spassky's, it was also used by the likes of Kasparov, Bronstein and Smyslov. And in a new four-part series, GM Ronen Har-Zvi takes a closer look at playing the London System (with c4) as an Anti-King’s Indian system. Learn More
  38. Anti-Grunfeld systems (7 part series)
    $20.93
    Ronen's Opening Survey: Anti-Grunfeld systems (7 part series). A15, A05: English opening, English opening with Qa4+. The Grunfeld Defense is one of those annoying openings that torment all 1 d4 players. After 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 g6 3 Nc3 d5 Black immediately begins active operations in the center and, more importantly, forces White to memorize a labyrinth of variations if he hopes to have any real chance at walking away with an advantage. But have no fear as there’s one Anti-Grunfeld line - favored by Veselin Topalov, among others - that’s fast becoming a panacea for white with easy play and troubles for black, and that’s lines with 4 Qa4+. And in a new series of Ronen’s Opening Survey, our openings expert takes a look at these Anti-Grunfeld lines. Learn More
  39. Marshall Gambit in the Slav (7 part series)
    $20.93
    Ronen's Opening Survey: Marshall Gambit in the Slav (7 part series). D10: QGD: semi-Slav, Marshall gambit 4. … Bb4. Frank J. Marshall, who held the U.S. championship title for 29 years before he relinquished it in 1936, had such a combinative style that he likened himself to boxing legend Jack Dempsey, who always went for a quick knockout blow. He left us his legacy of the Marshall Attack in the Ruy Lopez - but lesser known perhaps is his “other” gambit, a similarly vicious line against the notoriously tough Slav Defense that was also christened the Marshall Gambit after its inventor Learn More
  40. QGD with 5.Bf4 (7 part series)
    $20.93
    Ronen's Opening Survey: QGD with 5.Bf4 (7 part series). D37: QGD: classical variation (5.Bf4). 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. Learn More
  41. 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
  42. The 150 Attack  (7 part series)
    $20.93
    New Ideas in…: The 150 Attack (7 part series). B07: Pirc defense. In the latest of his "New Ideas In... " series, GM Ronen Har-Zvi looks at " The 150 Attack, " a sharp line for white against the Pirc that was pioneered in the 1980s by a new generation of English players, such as John Nunn, Nigel Short and Mickey Adams. The main idea is Be3, Qd2, Bh6, advance the h-pawn and then deliver mate. Naturally, this seemed too good to be true and was quickly dubbed the 150 Attack (a peculiarity of the English grading system, with 150 equating to 1800 Elo), since it seemed that only a club player would use such a blatant attacking system and expect the game to finish in checkmate. Learn More
  43. Sicilian, Chekhover Variation (7 part series)
    $20.93
    Ronen's Opening Survey: Sicilian, Chekhover Variation #1. B53: Sicilian . The Sicilian variation 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Qxd4, named after the very famous Russian chess composer Vitaly Chekhover (sometimes also called the Hungarian Variation), is an interesting alternative for white to avoid many of the heavily analyzed lines in the Sicilian. Oftentimes this variation leads to a more positional rather than complicated play. Recently the world number 1 , which by now we can say be the highest rated player in History, has decided to put this variation to work, and we are here as always to follow and explain this interesting and surprising line, that deserves attention at any level. Learn More
  44. Closed Game Structure: QGD (7 part series)
    $20.93
    Closed Game Structure: QGD (7 part series) Players: Botvinnik, Keres, Nenachev, Panchenko, Kasparov, Barua, Karpov, Ljuboljevic, Djuric, Pfleger, Watson, VanderSterren, Hansen, Seirawan, Jussupow, Gelfand, Ivanchuk, Andersson, Kasparov, Karpov, Pelletier,Schulman, Vouldis, Kasparov, Smyslov, Nielsen, Georgiev, Nikolic, Miladinovic, Kramnik, Morozevich, Atalik, Capablanca, Alekhine, Malaniuk, Petronijevic, Alekhine, Colle, Pillsburry, Chigorine, Karpov, Yussupov ECO: After several video lectures on structures that spring from 1.e4 e5, IM John Watson moves on to analyze 1.d4 d5 games. 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'. Learn More
  45. 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

    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

    Repertoire for White - Trompowsky Attack (8 part series) Players: Stefanova, Paehtz, De Waal, Maisuradze, Congiu, Chernyshov, Golichenko, Maisuradze, Congiu, Chernyshov, Golichenko, Trompowsky, Endzelins, Adams, Xie, Hodgson, Tseitlin, Sokolov, Har-Zvi, Stefanova, Royset, Murshed, Ahmed ECO: D00, D03, A45 IM John Watson, with his video course, helps us build a strong and efficient repertoire of openings, for White and for Black. In this new series John teaches us how to use the Trompovsky Attack. After 1.d4 Nf6, instead of playing the very common moves 2.c4 or 2.Nf3, White plays 2.Bg5, sidestepping the endless amount of opening theory that has been written about the Indian Defences, such as the Queen's Indian, the Nimzo-Indian, the King's Indian, as well as the Grunfeld. Study with John the interesting Tromposvky attack; make it part of your opening repertoire and use it as a weapon when you play your games! Learn More
