How do you do your opening training? Do you try in vain to commit to memory sequences of moves as far as move 15 or even 20? Fortunately there is no need for opening training to be like that, because for all those who are looking for a compact and entertaining survey of the openings, there are now the new ChessBase Opening Tutorials. The first volume of this new series contains in 24 lectures all the basic knowledge for the open game, that is to say all the important systems after 1.e4 e5. In video clips of at most ten to fifteen minutes, Masters and Grandmasters explain the variations and the ideas behind the various ways of starting the game, meaning that you can concentrate on the essentials. You get an overview of such different openings as the King’s Gambit, the Ruy Lopez, the Giuoco Piano, the Scotch and the Petroff, to name but the most important and the most popular. And who knows, perhaps during this instructive and entertaining tour through the world of the openings, you will discover a totally new favorite opening. We have made sure that there is variety in our video lectures by dividing up the task of presenting the material to you among several authors. The first volume contains videos in English by Lawrence Trent, Valeri Lilov, Lars Schandorff and Adrian Mikhalchishin. But at the same time on the DVD you will find the 24 videos in German, for which Jan Gustafsson, Karsten Müller, Niclas Huschenbeth (German champion 2010) and Elisabeth Pähtz took their place in front of the camera. But not only the idea of several authors on a single DVD is new; there is also the bi-lingual accompanying booklet, which is set up in the same format System requirements: PC with Windows XP (SP3), Vista or Windows 7, Windows Media Player and DVD-Drive.
The bundle includes one of the standard works in chess literature, “Common Sense in Chess”, edited for the 21st century by ChessCentral.
