For the average player the Dutch Defense can be a nasty shock. On the DVD, ABC of the Leningrad Dutch, IM Andrew Martin makes a compelling case for playing the Leningrad in competitive games and demonstrates that this is the ideal opening for players willing to embrace risk and who like to win.
On the new DVD, Roman’s Lab: Volume 65, GM Dzindzichashvili will take you through several sharp openings demonstrating what happens when you violate the sound and established principles of chess. He will help you understand the difference between sound sharp playable openings and those to avoid.
In the updated and revised second edition of Let’s Play Chess,
you will find the rules, the logic, some of the culture and history,
and the basic principles of good chess play.
