A Complete Black Repertoire against 1.d4

This video course offers you a complete, clear repertoire for Black against 1.d4, based on the Queen’s Gambit Accepted (1.d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4). By trading off the d-pawn, Black is aiming for an open game with free development for their pieces. Black doesn’t mind trading-off the central pawn, but rather is motivated to challenge White’s centre and grab their opponent by the throat! Besides covering all the critical lines after 1.d4 & 2.c4, popular systems such as the Trompovsky, London/Jobava System, Torre Attack, Colle System and Veresov are dealt with as well.

As against the main lines of the QGA, we are also treating these systems as actively as possible, looking for opportunities to seize the initiative. The video course is complemented by 20 exercises to test your knowledge, 10 positions to play-out to develop a better feeling for the type of positions, as well as a database with over 150 model games.

  • Video running time: 7 hours (English)
  • With interactive training including video feedback
  • Extra: Model games database & Training with ChessBase apps - Memorize the opening repertoire and play key positions against Fritz on various levels

A Complete Black Repertoire against 1.Nf3 & 1.c4

This video course offers you a complete, clear repertoire for Black against the moves 1.Nf3 and 1.c4. The recommended variations are easy to learn and not difficult to remember, but also pose White serious challenges. Against 1.Nf3 the plan is to respond with 1…d5 as Black is ready to return to the Queen’s Gambit Accepted in case White plays 2.d4 (see the other video course). In this part, all White's relevant alternatives (2.c4, 2.e3, 2.b3, 2.g3) are covered in depth.

Against the English Opening (1.c4 e5) the Grand Prix Attack with colours reversed (2...Nc6 & 3...f5) is an attractive weapon for club players and grandmasters alike, as it can be played against 2.Nc3 and 2.g3. In some lines, Black is about to launch a quick offensive against the white king, while in other cases a heated battle in the centre may be expected. The video course is complemented by 15 exercises to test your knowledge, 10 positions to play-out to develop a better feeling for the type of positions, as well as a database with around 150 model games.
