Your New Opening Repertoire by IM John Watson
- Product Review (submitted on March 25, 2018):
- Most of these openings are non-main line openings that an experienced played may not be familiar with. He emphasizes "typical strategies" to keep you in the game. I actually purchased this package for the five part series on the Sicilian Rossolimo which is one of my "mainlines". I found this five part series very absorbing and informative. Watson is a gifted instructor, but I wish he would create a series on more "mainline" openings. In his very first video in his "Interview" series Watson suggests the Ruy Lopez Worrall Attack for White and the Ruy Lopez Zaitsev Variation for Black and recommends two books: " The Ruy Lopez: A Guide for Black" By: Sverre Johnsenn and "Play the Ruy Lopez" by Andrew Greet. This could be expanded into an excellent video series.
