Product Details

With this DVD on the King's Indian Defense, Alexei Shirov continues the successful and highly praised series about his best games.
As in the preceding DVDs the Latvian super grandmaster succeeds in spoiling his public with analysis of a high quality and with exciting insights into his games.  He does so in his own reserved, pleasant and modest style.  As is the case with many of his openings, Alexei Shirov also plays the King's Indian with both colors. 

The DVD concentrates on the main line of the Classical King's Indian with Nf3, Be2 and 0-0.  In the games (and they are almost exclusively victories), his opponents are renowned experts in this opening...such as World Champion Kramnik and Boris Gelfand with White.  Black is represented, among others, by the legendary King's Indian specialist John Nunn, but also by Teimour Radjabov, who may not yet be a legend but who is reckoned at the moment to be the greatest expert in the King's Indian.

Alexei Shirov was born in Riga just like world champion Mikail Tal.  His playing style reminds many chess fans of the young Tal.  In the beginning of the 90s, a comet-like rise brought the young Latvian to the world top within a short period of time.  At only 22 years, he already held 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.
