V2012 Prelude to Armageddon - Raymond Keene - Chess DVD

DVD Set of Two
Review the run up to the titanic struggle between Kasparov and Karpov, with commentary by GM Raymond Keene. Before their titanic struggle began in late 1984 which resulted in no fewer than five world championship duels over almost seven years, Gary Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov both participated in key events in London. Kasparov had to overcome Viktor Korchnoi in order to challenge Karpov for the supreme title, while Karpov had to prove himself in a tournament of elite Grandmasters as the prelude to his title defence against the young genius from Baku. This DVD set includes coverage of the critical games as well as sensational archival footage of leading Grandmasters and champions, many of whom are no longer with us. There is fabulous archival footage of the greats such as Kasparov, Karpov, Smyslov, Ribli, Najdorf, Gligoric, Robert Byrne, Miles, Mestel, Speelman, Timman as well as additional commentary by Bob Wade.

    V2001 Set of Five of The Bad Bishop Series - Chess DVD

    V2001 Set of Five of The Bad Bishop Series - Chess DVD

    DVD Set of Five
    DVD 1: Bashing the Sicilian with Bb5 Vol 1 Moves 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5. The move 3. Bb5 against the Sicilian is enjoying a renaissance as a sound and forceful attacking system for White, as well as one which sidesteps the huge mass of normal Sicilian theory. Converts include Gary Kasparov, Vishy Anand, and Ruslan Ponomariov. In this video, Grandmaster Murray Chandler presents a cunningly selected and superbly consistent repertoire to counter every important Black response. Using 16 outstanding illustrative games, White's optimum strategies are clearly explained, and the lessons are reinforced by easy-to-understand summaries. This video, volume 1, deals with lines after 2...Nc6. Volume 2 of Bashing the Sicilian with Bb5 covers the variation 2...d6 3 Bb5+.
    DVD 2: Bashing the Sicilian with Bb5 - Vol 2 Moves 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. Bb5+. The system 3 Bb5+ against the Sicilian is an excellent weapon for White - and has the bonus of cancelling out defences such as the Najdorf and the Dragon. In this video, Grandmaster Murray Chandler presents an aggressive repertoire to deal with every important Black response. Using 15 outstanding illustrative games - including some from Michael Adams, Sergei Rublevsky and Vladimir Kramnik - White's optimum strategies are clearly explained. The lessons are reinforced by easy-to-understand summaries, giving the viewer an instant new way to Bash the Sicilian. This video, volume 2, deals with lines after 2...d6. Volume 1 of Bashing the Sicilian with Bb5 covers the variation 2...Nc6 3 Bb5.
    DVD 3: Accelerated Dragon The Accelerated Dragon is a versatile and easy-to-learn system for Black to have in his repertoire. Black can force the variation via the Sicilian Defence (1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 g6), and there are cunning transpositions via different move orders - even via 1 c4, when an unsuspecting opponent starts with the English Opening. Using illustrative games, Andrew Martin reveals how White can so easily go astray immediately when faced with the Accelerated, and how refutation attempts rebound disastrously. Against the positional Maroczy Bind system, Martin shows how Black can create active counterplay with pawn breaks.
    DVD 4: Scheming Scandinavian The Scandinavian Defence (1 e4 d5 2 exd5 Qxd5) is hugely popular at club level, because Black dictates the opening struggle from move one. In this instructive DVD, International Master Andrew Martin takes the viewer through all of the basic themes required to play the opening with confidence - and success. Particular attention is devoted to key strategies for Black, and major sections end with an easy-to-understand summary. The comprehensive coverage extends to transpositions, where Martin reveals a simple method of disarming the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (arising after 2 d4). Over 2 hours 15 mins.
    DVD 5: Knockout Nimzo In this DVD Grandmaster Tony Kosten hacks a path for you through the jungle of opening theory. He presents a complete and powerful repertoire for Black against the main lines of the Nimzo.The Nimzo-Indian Defence (1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 e6 3 Nc3 Bb4) offers dynamic winning possibilities for Black that persist throughout the game. Black trades the bishop pair, but in return gains the tactical advantage of quick development, and often also saddles White with long-term pawn weaknesses.

    V2004 Garry Kasparov - My Story - Set of Five - plus Free Masterchess 6000 - Chess DVD

    DVD Set of Five plus MasterChess 6000
    DVD 1: Teenage Prodigy By the age of 12 Garry was the Junior Champion of the mighty USSR, the youngest ever. Back then fashion bowed to the immaculate safety-first style of the reigning titan Anatoly Karpov. Along came young Kasparov, raging onto the scene and riding some new contraption called glasnost. His style - brash, energetic and aggressive took the chess world by storm and reinvented the standard for future generations of chess players.
    DVD 2: Joining the Elite If one element characterised the games of teenage Garry Kasparov, it was the whirlwind aggression of his play. By 1981, though still a tender 18 years of age, his ferocious talent demanded that he clear ever-higher hurdles. Now it was time to take on the grown-ups, and for him this meant one thing - the world elite.
    DVD 3: Rebels and Rengades A close look at Garry Kasparov's career reveals a remarkable amount of sheer brinkmanship. At a time when the Soviet Union was wired with paranoia and run by invisible connections, the winds of political change were beginning to stir and the brash renegade Kasparov would be in the right place at the right time to capitalize on the new climate.
    DVD 4: Hitting the Wall The shadows of political intrigue would threaten to do what no chess player could manage - to eliminate Garry from the hunt for the World Title. And when the long awaited confrontation between Karpov and Kasparov arrived, it turned out to be the most remarkable and controversial match ever played.
    DVD 5: Rite of Passage On the eve of the most important game he would ever play, Garry Kasparov sought the advice of legends Botvinnik and Tal. If Kasparov succeeded, he would take Tal's place as the youngest World Champion in history. Was this another one of Garry's magic numbers? READ MORE...
