Sipke: The Super Solid Slav Defence
When you add the Slav to your repertoire, you get an opening with a solid foundation. However, that doesn't mean you will get a boring game. On the contrary, this opening often leads to very dynamic play. Therefore, it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of the world class players of today, including Carlsen, Caruana and Firouzja have played it frequently, and used it to play for a win against their contemporaries. We get the Slav after the moves 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6. This video course will focus on 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 and now dxc4, but the white alternatives leading up to the mainline are also discussed in great detail. This video course will explain how to handle the closed positions that happen after 4.e3, but also how to deal with white's gambit play in the Tolush-Geller Gambit. Moreover, after watching this video course you will feel like an expert on IQP-positions • Video running time: 6 hours 28 minutes • With interactive training including video feedback • Extra: Model games database & Training with ChessBase apps - Memorize the opening repertoire and play key positions against Fritz on various levels

Marin: Taktik Turbo Italienisch
Das sehr beliebte Italienische Spiel (traditionell bekannt als Giuoco Piano, was auf Italienisch „das ruhige Spiel" bedeutet) ist hauptsächlich eine positionelle Eröffnung. Dies wird noch deutlicher in den Systemen mit d2-d3 (Giuoco Pianissimo), in denen Weiß von einem frühen Kampf um das Zentrum absieht. Mit all den Figuren und Bauern auf dem Brett gibt es viele versteckte taktische Möglichkeiten für beide Seiten. Dieser Videokurs ist als taktischer Leitfaden für Schwarz gedacht und behandelt Themen wie die taktischen Möglichkeiten des Läufers auf c5 und des relativ eingeschränkten Springers auf c6, den Angriff am Königsflügel und den Kampf um das Zentrum. Da die Struktur fast symmetrisch ist, hat der Autor auch einige Beispiele mit gespiegelten Ideen untersucht, wie z.B. die taktischen Fähigkeiten des weißfeldrigen Läufers. Auf diese Weise möchte er das Verständnis der Zuschauer für bestimmte Ideen erweitern, sie aber auch vor möglichen taktischen Gefahren warnen. Der Autor hofft, dass der Geist der Beispiele in diesem Videokurs die weit verbreitete Befürchtung zerstreut, dass das Schachspiel durch Remis ausstirbt. • Videospielzeit: 5 Stunden 24 Minuten (Deutsch) • Mit interaktiven Schachaufgaben inklusive Videofeedback • Extra: Datenbank mit weiteren Partien

Marin: Ein Schwarzrepertoire gegen Italienisch
Angesichts der Schwierigkeit für Weiß, in einer Reihe von Spanisch-Systemen einen Vorteil nachzuweisen, ist die Italienische Partie (auch bekannt als Giuoco Piano) immer beliebter geworden. In den Systemen, die auf einem frühen d2-d3 (Giuoco Pianissimo) basieren, zielt Weiß darauf ab, seinen Gegner dem gleichen positionellen Druck zu unterwerfen wie die „Spanische Folter", ein Begriff, der von Tartakower für die Beschreibung des strategischen Kampfes im der Spanischen Partie verwendet wurde. Das Repertoire gegen das Giuoco Pianissimo, das auf diesem Videokurs untersucht wird, gibt Schwarz Methoden an die Hand, um diesem etwas einseitigen Muster zu entgehen und ein solides Spiel in zweischneidigen Stellungen zu erreichen. Das Hauptmotiv ist ...g5, aber wenn Weiß dagegen vorgeht, kann Schwarz auf bequeme Varianten mit positionellem Charakter übergehen. Die zweite Gruppe der untersuchten Systeme zeichnet sich dadurch aus, dass Weiß das Zentrum frühzeitig mit d4 öffnet. Schwarz hat in diesen Varianten nichts zu befürchten und sollte die Wahl von Weiß begrüßen, da sie auch für Schwarz Chancen zum Gegenspiel bietet. Dieser Videokurs enthält außerdem eine Datenbank mit allen für das Repertoire relevanten Partien sowie eine Auswahl von Übungsstellungen. • Videospielzeit: 5 Stunden 47 Minuten (Deutsch) • Mit interaktiven Schachaufgaben inklusive Videofeedback • Extra: Modellpartien; Training mit ChessBase apps – Repertoire erlenernen und Schlüsselstellungen auf verschiedenen Leveln ausspielen

Ashley: The Secret to Chess
Ashley   The Secret to Chess   How Grandmasters Find Amazing Moves - Most chess fans believe that knowledge of the opening, middlegame and endgame is what separates Grandmasters from everyone else.

He shares the secret he discovered on his path to the Grandmaster title, a secret that every player must understand in order to reach the highest level. Introducing his new term “Drawback Chess“, he shows that chess is often not about looking for a winning move, but more about searching to find the flaws hidden deep inside your opponent‘s moves. With instructive examples and engaging practice positions, all explained with a clarity that anyone can understand, Maurice opens the door to a grandmaster‘s thinking process that will put you on the path to real chess improvement.

Ashley: What Grandmaster don´t see Vol 1: Protected Squares
Ashley: What Grandmaster don´t see Vol 1: Protected Squares   Many times when a top player blunders, it is routinely described by the esoteric term „chess blindness.“ In the series What Grandmasters Don‘t See, chess trainer and world-class commentator Maurice Ashley strips away the myth, and for the first time explains why the root of these mistakes is more often based on the psychology of human learning.In Volume 1 of the series, Ashley coins a new term Protected Squares, and shows how many errors occur on squares that seem invulnerable because they are clearly guarded by pawns. In example after example and in his trademark style, Ashley will teach you how to avoid this kind of mistake and how to look for moves that will shock and amaze your opponents. In the first 19 videos on the DVD Ashley demonstrates both well-known and little known games in which a move on to a protected square plays an important part. In the second half of the DVD you are tested on what you have learned about protected squares with a series of exercises of increasing difficulty.

In this series What Grandmasters Don‘t See, chess trainer and worldclass commentator Maurice Ashley strips away the myth and for the first time explains why the root of these mistakes is more often based in the psychology of human learning. In this DVD, Volume 2 of the three part series, Ashley shows that no other standard tactical theme is more over-rated, overlooked and misunderstood than the Discovered Attack. In each example, Ashley illustrates how often players are confused by discovered attacks because the examples in the majority of chess books are poorly chosen to show how this important tactical idea really works in most practical games. In the first half of the DVD, Ashley uses interesting and entertaining positions to explain the points in his trademark effervescent style.

Ashley: What Grandmaster don´t see Vol 3: Summery and Test   Wenn Spitzenspieler einen schweren Fehler begehen, wird oft auf die Floskel „Schachblindheit“ zurückgegriffen. In der neuen Reihe „What Grandmasters Don‘t See“ nimmt GM Maurice Ashley diesen Mythos auseinander und erläutert, auf welche Weise diese Fehler in der Psychologie des menschlichen Lernprozesses verwurzelt sind. Auf der abschließenden dritten DVD der Serie entwickelt Ashley seine Idee der Geschützten Felder aus Band 1 weiter, dabei zeigt er, dass Felder, die scheinbar zuverlässig von Figuren geschützt sind, oftmals das Brutgebiet für verblüffende taktische Patzer sind. Außerdem vermischt der Autor die Themen aller drei DVDs, um ein genaues Bild der Schlüsselwege zu zeichnen, auf denen typische Fehler von Spielern aller Leistungsklassen ausgenutzt werden können. Für die erste Hälfte der DVD verwendet Ashley brillante Partien und Fragmente, um die Lektionen in seinem dynamischen Kommentarstil vorzutragen.

Bojkov: Chess Highways
Bojkov: Chess Highways   Fast alle Schachfiguren (außer den trickreichen Springern) haben die Fähigkeit, sich auf geraden Bahnen fortzubewegen, ob vertikal (Linien), horizontal (Reihen) oder auf den Diagonalen. Diese geraden Bahnen, welche die verschiedenen Abschnitte des Brettes verbinden und den Figuren die Chance geben, den Ausgang der Schlacht zu entscheiden, sind äußerst wichtig im Schach, und daher der Titel Highways - Zugstraßen. Die Fähigkeiten der Figuren zu verstehen, ist für jeden Spieler ein absolutes Muss, vom Anfänger bis hin zum Meister. In einer Schachpartie sind Sie der General, und die Figuren sind Ihre eigenen Soldaten - je besser Ihre Beziehung zu Ihren Soldaten, desto besser Ihre Ergebnisse.   In seiner dritten DVD für ChessBase gibt GM Dejan Bojkov aus Bulgarien Aufschluss über die Eigenschaften jener Figuren, die sich auf geraden Bahnen fortbewegen, und Tipps, wie man die offenen Diagonalen, Reihen und Linien am besten nutzen kann, um aus jeder einzelnen Figur das Maximum herauszuholen. In 30 Clips werden Sie erfahren, wie Sie Ihre Schwerfiguren besser verstehen und die offenen bzw. halboffenen Linien effektiver verwerten können; Sie werden erfahren, was deren Ängste sind, und wie Sie ihnen helfen können. Am Ende gibt es auf der DVD eine Trainingssession, um das Materialverständnis besser zu fördern. Ein unschätzbar wertvolles Handbuch für Spieler wie Trainer.

Bojkov: Attacking with the Pirc
Bojkov:  Attacking with the Pirc   The Slovenian GM Vasja Pirc was a five time Yugoslavian champion. This speaks volumes for his playing strength but there is a more important contribution which he has made to the chess world. The defence which he explored in detail after the moves: 1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 g6 is named after him. There were ups and downs in the appearance of the Pirc in tournament practice. Many people considered it dubious. However, the Pirc survived and it is coming back into fashion nowadays again. The reasons for that are the flexible nature of the position and the variety of possibilities that both sides have. One should expect that the fewer options which White has the easier the defence would be. Indeed, there is logic in that, but, on the other hand, correct play by both sides should lead to a draw. Instead of this approach the Bulgarian grandmaster Dejan Bojkov offers an aggressive repertoire for the second player in this new DVD. Black risks more than usual but hopes for higher dividends in return for the risk. The original analyses on the DVD will help the reader control the risk involved. Video running time: 4 hours 29 min.   System requirements   Pentium-Processor at 300 Mhz or higher, 64 MB RAM, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, DVD drive, mouse, soundcard

Bojkov: A modern Way to play the King´s Indian
Bojkov: A modern Way to play the King´s Indian   The Zürich Interzonal of 1953 and the marvellous annotations of David Bronstein changed our understanding of the KID. From a second-class opening, it became one of the most aggressive and dangerous setups for the second player. Back in those days players tended to develop their queen’s knight to d7. Later a more central approach came into fashion and the knight found a good square on c6. Current practice though, has revealed that there is one more good square for that piece - the a6 one. From this new outpost the knight is heading for the centre without obstructing its own bishop. Bulgarian GM Dejan Bojkov is one of the true supporters of such a development. In this DVD you will find a repertoire based on flexible development whenever possible, and an explanation of some strategic nuances of the KID. The author shares with you a lot of novelties that he had prepared throughout his study of the lines.

Bojkov: Try the Sicilian Kalashnikov!
Bojkov: Try the Sicilian Kalashnikov!   Maybe you remember the famous game McDonnell-De Labourdonnais from their 1834 match in London, the one in which three connected black pawns reached the second rank and forced Whites resignation. What you probably do not know is that this game started with the moves 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 e5. Whites most common move then is 5.Nb5, which Black for many years preferred to meet with 5...a6, which is a strategically risky decision. But a completely new development of the whole system was initiated in 1987, when Evgeny Sveshnikov, the godfather of the Sveshnikov Sicilian (4...Nf6 5.Nc3 e5), changed to 4...e5 and followed this with 5...d6, which is positionally more sound. The latter move brings us to the subject of the current DVD - the Kalashnikov, or the Neo-Sveshnikov line. In 32 video clips Dejan Bojkov covers the main ideas behind Blacks setup, the positional ideas behind the opening, the dangers that the second player is facing and prepares a thorough and deep repertoire for those willing to play the line as Black. The DVD is separated into two parts - the first one provides the main ideas behind the opening, and the second gives the theoretical material. The main point behind Blacks idea is that he occupies the centre without any delay, with tempo. The main drawback - the weakening of the d5-square. Which factor should prevail? Watch the DVD to find out! Video running time: 6 hours.   Dejan Bojkov is a Bulgarian GM, rated 2544. He was Bulgarian national champion in 2009, and is a member of the Bulgarian national team. He is also the current trainer of former world women`s champion Antoaneta Stefanova.   Systemvoraussetzungen   Pentium Prozessor 300 MHz oder besser, 64 MB RAM, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, DVD-ROM Laufwerk, Maus, Soundkarte

Bojkov: The true value of the pieces
Bojkov: The true value of the pieces   when material is unbalanced   Queen against two rooks or three minor pieces, as well as a rook plus pawn vs two minor pieces - these are typical constellations where the material is unbalanced. In our first steps in chess we are taught about the nominal value of the pieces. The queen is equal to nine pawns; a rook to five, a minor piece is worth three pawns. This is a common sense solution aimed at teaching the beginner a system of values so that he or she does not trade a more valuable piece for a less good one. Later however, situations occur in games in which one side can trade two minor pieces (six pawns) for a rook and a pawn (also six pawns). Theoretically speaking, this should result in an equal position, but in reality one of the two sides will profit from the exchange. There are many cases of material imbalance in chess.

Bologan: Beating the Sicilian Vol 1: A Grandmaster´s Repertoire
Bologan: Beating the Sicilian Vol 1: A Grandmaster´s Repertoire   Out of the dozens and dozens of openings played nowadays the Sicilian Defence remains the most fascinating, entertaining and complex opening. Here White understands that Black will not be a patient lamb but will try to get at him at the very first opportunity. For those who are ready to take on the challenge and plunge into the wonderful world of combinations, attacks and counter-attacks, for those who really love chess... this DVD is designed for you. In the first volume of the Open Sicilian for White we present all black reactions to 2...Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4. This includes the Sveshnikov/Cheliabinsk Variation, the Rauzer Attack, the Maroczy Bind and a few other minor side lines. The approach is typical for Bologan’s DVDs, as he tries to describe in a compact format plans and reactions from White’s point of view. With the help of this DVD one can forget about fears concerning the tons of theory in the Open Sicilian and can get straight into the real fight! Video running time: 6 hours   Englische Sprachversion.   Systemvorraussetzungen   Pentium Prozessor 300 MHz oder besser, 64 MB RAM, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, DVD-ROM Laufwerk, Maus, Soundkarte.

Bologan: Beating the Sicilian Vol 2: A Grandmaster´s Repertoire
Bologan: Beating the Sicilian Vol 2: A Grandmaster´s Repertoire   The second volume of the Open Sicilian is dedicated to two very important areas: the most interesting opening of all time the Najdorf Variation, and also to the most romantic line in the Sicilian - the Dragon Variation. It’s actually enough to point out that both openings were played successfully by Garry Kasparov with Black. The author’s task was to give White some clear lines which will survive all kind of possible improvements from the black side and still be able to give White hope for an advantage. In both cases Bologan recommends a setup with f3, Be3, Qd2, the so-called English Attack. The similarity of ideas makes the job of memorising lines somewhat easier, and at the same time the traditional line by line approach allows the avoidance of any unpleasant surprises. Many mysteries under the surface of the Sicilian can be found by hard work and experience and the author really hopes that this DVD will help you in that! Video running time: 5 hours 40 minutes.   Englische Sprachversion.   Systemvorraussetzungen   Pentium Prozessor 300 MHz oder besser, 64 MB RAM, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, DVD-ROM Laufwerk, Maus, Soundkarte.

Bologan: Beating the Sicilian Vol 3: A Grandmaster´s Repertoire
Bologan: Beating the Sicilian Vol 3: A Grandmaster´s Repertoire   In the third volume of the Open Sicilian we will deal with Black’s second move 2....e6 which he usually adopts when striving for a complex game full of subtleties in order to outplay White, especially when his opponent is lower rated. But the reverse of the medal is that Black assumes quite high risks, and with strict reactions White can pose him serious problems. Of course the DVD is mainly dedicated to all kinds of Paulsen lines with 4… a6 and 4… Nc6, where against most of the main variations I advise the same setup we use against Najdorf and Dragon with Be3, f3 and Qd2, usually followed by long castle. Despite the many games being played every day, Black is still far from safe equality here. Apart from some side lines like 5…Bb4, quite important is to learn how to play the classical Keres Attack. After 6.g4, my recommendation, only the variation with 6…e5 still poses White unpleasant questions - to which of course I have tried to come up with some answers... With the final word on the Sicilian trilogy, I would encourage the viewer to play the Open Sicilian and to have the DVDs as partners, consultants and if lucky a friend in both critical and good situations. Video running time: 5 hours.   Englische Sprachversion.   Systemvorraussetzungen   Pentium Prozessor 300 MHz oder besser, 64 MB RAM, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, DVD-ROM Laufwerk, Maus, Soundkarte.
