Product Details

The Gruenfeld Indian is an active and dynamic reply to 1.d4 which can lead to complex and extremely sharp positions. So it's no wonder that also Alexei Shirov included this opening which at its debut in tournament practice was called hyper-modern into his repertoire. At the candidates final against Vladimir Kramnik in Cazorla in 1998, he exclusively and successfully trusted the Gruenfeld Indian with Black; the victory over Kramnik gave him the right to play a WCH match versus Kasparov. In the first part of the DVD Shirov extensively comments his five Black games from the Kramnik match, giving deep insights into opening preparation and match strategy on highest level. In the second part Shirov reveals, among other things, how in his opposite-colored bishop endgame against Topalov in Linares in 1998 he found the amazing and unique move, which will secure the game a place in chess history forever. This is not the only flash of inspiration the Super Grandmaster will present in his videos Running time: 5:25 hours

Alexei Shirov was born in Riga just like world champion Mihail Tal, and also his playing style reminds many chess fans of the young Tal. In the beginning of the 90ies, a comet-like rise brought the young Latvian to the world top within the shortest of time. Being no older than 22 years, he already had an ELO rating of nearly 2750 and belonged to the absolute elite. Since then Shirov has been one of the best players in the world, delighting all chess fans with original and amazing ideas on the board.
