Inkl. MwSt., zzgl. Versandkosten

A two DVD series taking a look at Black’s most aggressive response to 1 e4 from both a principled and theoretical perspective. In this first part, the emphasis is on themes and ideas as the viewer is armed with tactical and positional motifs and concepts after 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 d6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Nf6 5 Nc3 g6. From the basic weaponry of the legendary Dragon bishop, maximising the c-file and traps and zaps, through to more complex topics such as prophylaxis and when to use the e-pawn, so many finer points are covered here.

Whatever your level, this is designed to develop your comprehension of this ultra-exciting opening so as never to leave you reliant on parrot-fashion learning. No, we have a slightly bigger bird in mind and whilst theory and assessments on variations may change, this information is timeless and guaranteed to develop your understanding and breathe fire into your chess!

  • Video running time: 5 hours 20 min (English)

  • With interactive training including video feedback

  • Extra: Database with model games
