French Grandmaster Christian Bauer presents two repertoire ideas which served him well at the Vandoeuvre Open at the beginning of the year. He recommends countering the Grünfeld with a sharp line of the London System: 1.d4 ♞f6 2.♗f4 g6 3.♘c3 d5 4.e3 ♝g7 5.h4!? And he explains why he likes the move 8…♛e8 in the Nimzo-Indian with 4.♕c2. 

In an addition to his recently released "Anti-London" DVD, Yannick Pelletier explains why the move-order 1.d4 d5 2.♘f3 ♞f6 3.♗f4 c5 4.c3 ♞c6 5.e3 is no longer popular on master level, and how Black gets very comfortable play with a few energetic moves! You start the video of your choice by clicking on the "Play" button.

The menu on the left of the starting page offers an overview of the content of the CBM Extra 188. The "Brilliancy Game" link leads to a video by Georgios Souleidis who treats you to a fantastic game by Mihail Tal:

Brilliancy game

By the way: all in all the videos on the new CBM Extra 188 have a run-time of almost two hours!

And there is the "Lucky Bag"! With an interesting video interview with Praggnanandhaa Rameshbabu. Last year, at the age of 12 years, 10 months, and 13 days, "Pragg" became one of the youngest grandmasters of all time and together with IM Sagar Shah the Indian super-talent shows and explains four games on this video that helped to get his third and final GM norm.

Our editorial team also selected a number of annotated games which all are special. Michal Krasenkow, for example, annotates games from the Gibraltar Masters, including two games by the winner of the Gibraltar Open, Russian shooting star Vladislav Artemiev!

As part of the update service the new CBM Extra includes 35,000 games from almost 300 recent tournaments, featuring games by top players such as Caruana, Mamedyarov, Ding Liren, Vachier Lagrave, So, Aronian, Yu Yangyi, Nakamura, Duda, Rapport, Navara, and many others.
