Product Details

The English Opening with 1.c4 is one of the most subtle yet combative means of starting a chess game which has found favor with many of the great players in history. White takes space on the Queen-side whilst keeping his options open about where he should place his pieces. This gives White the kind of flexibility that is missing from regular 1.d4 openings and puts the onus on planning and ideas rather than a knowledge of variations.

On this DVD Davies tells you everything you need to know to start playing the English in tournament games, showing how White should react to Black's different set-ups using 40 illustrative games. The main focus is on lines with 2.g3, making it easier for White to get aboard this Rolls Royce of chess openings.

Video running time: 8 hours.

Nigel Davies has been a Grandmaster since 1993 and is a former British Open Quickplay and U21 Champion. He has more than 30 years experience of playing the English Opening, having used it extensively in his own games.

System requirements: Pentium-Processor at 300 Mhz or higher, 64 MB RAM, Windows XP, Windows Vista, DVD drive, mouse, soundcard.
