In this second edition of the "Master & Amateur" style ChessBase DVD in English, International Master Lorin D'Costa and chess-software expert Nick Murphy take you through the main ideas of the QGD in an easy to understand, conversational style.


The common man also plays chess

Nick Murphy is an avid chess player and an actor by profession. When he first toured Germany with a Shakespeare company, he also visited Hamburg and passed by the ChessBase office as a ChessBase user. But not everything is Shakespeare for an actor, so Nick Murpy has worked in many other areas as well. He has been on staff for London's Chess & Bridge shop. And for ChessBase users, he recorded video tutorials in which he explained the features of various Fritz program. 

Together with International Master Lorin D'Costa, Nick Murphy also recorded three "master & amateur" style DVDs. 

Now you could admire the versatile chess friend and actor in an advertising clip for OBi. Anyone who has a garden and has to mow it once again can feel the enthusiasm of Nick Murphy on the Lux Tools B-RT165 / 92 directly. Who would not like to have the monster in his garden?
