Daniel King – Power Play 19:
Attack with 1.e4 Part II

This DVD provides you with a repertoire of attacking lines against:

  • The Scandinavian
  • Alekhine’s Defence
  • The Petroff
  • The Philidor
  • The Pirc
  • The Modern Defence (1. e4 g6).

Many of these openings are very popular in club chess, yet they are often underestimated by players of the white pieces. Using his wealth of experience playing with 1.e4, grandmaster Daniel King explains the openings and provides you with an aggressive system against each of them.

This is the second part of Daniel King’s project ‘Attack with 1.e4’ (part I dealt with the Sicilian, the French, The Caro Kann and 1...e5). King’s recommendations aim to put your opponent under pressure right from the start of the game, and when players are under pressure, mistakes occur. This is a practical repertoire – if we study openings we want to be sure to use them in our games. After just a few moves, you will be dictating play. Video running time: 5 hours 24 min.

Sample: Daniel King Power Play 19 - Attack with 1.e4 Vol.2

Daniel writes: "My latest Power Play DVD has just been released: 'Attack With 1 e4 - part II'. The DVD consists of my repertoire recommendations for White against the Scandinavian, the Alekhine's Defence, the Petroff, the Philidor, the Modern and the Pirc. But it seems that I overlooked something. How could I forget the deadly Philidor Counter Gambit...? I thought I'd better put that right in this clip."
