Control of an outpost is all very well but there's often an issue about how to break through. Building on the show about Stonewall type attacks, Nigel shows some methods of defusing them for Black. Featured games include Spassky - Petrosian, Moscow 1966.

Nigel Davies promises: "I will be drawing on my experience to address issues which affect club players. My views tend to be a bit different, which is why they may come as revelations to the audience (thus the name of the show, 'Nigel's Radio Revs'). It is worthwhile noting that people can send me questions by using the address on the contact page at my TigerChess web site."
