  12. 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?

    Pawn chains: how and when to attack them.

  19. 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.

  20. 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
  21. Latvian Gambit (2 video series)
    $5.98
    The Latvian Gambit with 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 f5!? is one of the most exciting and fascinating openings with a long and storied history in chess literature. The name was a tribute to the Latvian players, notably Karlis Betins (1867-1943), who analyzed it in the early part of the 20th century. Although it is almost impossible to find in the repertoire of a professional player, amateurs, correspondence players and online aficionados here at the ICC have long found the tactical labyrinth of the main lines to be highly appealing. And in this Gambit Guide series, GM Boris Alterman puts the Latvian under the microscope. Learn More

  32. GM Varuzhan Akobian: 'Tarraschin' 1 d4
    $8.97
    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.

    $20.93
    Ronen's Opening Survey: Classical King's Indian with 7 … exd4 (3 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
  41. 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
  43. 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
  44. The Chinese Dragon (4 part series)
    $11.96
    Ronen's Opening Survey: The Chinese Dragon (4 part series). B78: Sicilian: chinese dragon, aka Yugoslav attack, 10.O-O-O. 2012 is the Year of the Dragon in China. We could not miss the opportunity to get into this popular and widely debated Opening Defense. Belgian Fide Master Luc Henris, who was living in China with his Chinese wife, christened the variation “Chinese Dragon” (e4 b5 Nf3 d6 d4 cxd4 Nxd4 Nf6 Nc3 g6 Be3 Bg7 f3 Nc6 Qd2 0-0 Bc4 Bd7 0-0-0 Rb8) when he wrote a ground-breaking article about it for Yearbook 62, and that is when the name Chinese Dragon came to the world. If you like aggressive action, then you are in for a treat. The Chinese Dragon is a new way to look at the Sicilian Dragon Defense, and allows Black to strike first in the pawn race. Many strong GMs play this variation, such as Magnus Carlsen, Teimour Radjabov and Vassily Ivanchuk. Usually in the Sicilian Defense, and especially the Dragon variation, Black will put his rook on c8, to get maximum pressure down the c-file. However, in the Chinese Dragon, Black puts his rook on b8 to allow a quick push of his b-pawn. The pawn is immune from capture due to the quick and deadly attack Black gets on both the b and c files. However, many opponents fall for the trap and eat the pawn. After putting his rook on b8 on move 10, Black's goal is simple. Play b5, Na5-Nc4, and force white to capture the knight, opening the b-file to attack down. After the b file is open, play Qb6 to double up on the b file, bring the other rook to c8 for maximum pressure, and if needed push the a pawn as well. It is a simple formula that can be played almost automatically. In his new series of the always interesting “Opening Survey” show, GM Ronen shows you all the “nip ‘n ’tips” of this intriguing variation of the Sicilian Defense. Learn More
  45. 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
  46. The DERLD (5 part series)
    $14.95
    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. Learn More
  47. 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.

  48. 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
  49. 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
  50. 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
