This course gives you a complete repertoire based on 1.b3. You are going to get an advantage by surprising your opponents, playing positions that only you’re familiar with, and your opponents are not.

You will know the nuances. <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>You will know exactly when on move 4 or 5 they will do something inaccurate</strong></span>. That’s really the key idea behind this system.

Most club players play the same openings over and over again: <strong>1.e4, 1.d4, 1.c4, 1.Nf3</strong>… you name it. You probably know those pretty well, but so does your opponent.

There is nothing wrong with that approach…

Except that you always need to be up to date with all the lines and variations in the Slav, Nimzo, Sicilian, French, and the list goes on and on.

On top of that, you need to constantly dive deeper and deeper into the opening tree to stay competitive. You have to remember <strong>TONs</strong> of opening moves just to <strong>avoid</strong> a carefully prepared trap. That’s <strong>a lot of theory</strong>, and it takes <strong>HARD WORK </strong>and many, many hours of your precious time to learn just a single line…

<span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Is there a better way?</strong></span>

Wouldn’t it be great to play the opening that you know well and let your opponent do all the “<strong>struggling”</strong>? What if I told you that you could add this kind of weapon to your <strong>repertoire</strong> in a matter of <strong>DAYS</strong>, not weeks or months?

That's the reason why today, we're introducing the secret weapon for white – the <strong>Complete Repertoire with 1.b3</strong>

Interesting - an option?

I only had a first look to all the files. As I had played 1. b4 for a long time this was not completely new for me. Perhaps this can be an option in the future, but I will have to have a closer look to all the files

1.b3 Bash by FM Levy Rozman

1.b3 Bash by FM Levy Rozman Any material on Larsen's opening 1.b3 is more than welcome. Since the very early 70's 1.b3 has been a mainstay of non-theory type players at all levels. The stigma of being an eccentric opening has faded yet, it remains outside the halls of mainline theory. I was excited to see the material from FM Levy Rozman when I got the download. A lot of the material is both interesting and useful. Chapter one covers the old main line 1.b3 e5 2.Bb2 Nc6 3.e3 d5 4.Bb5. The author extends the ideas in these lines beyond what has been published previously. Chapter 5 offers an interesting approach to dealing with the fashionable 1.b3 d5 2.Bb2 Bg4, this is valuable stuff. A couple of the less standard ideas such as 1.b3 e5 2.Bb2 d6 are reviewed in chapter 6, these lines crop up surprisingly often. I will say that I was surprised to find 2 chapters on the current hot line 1.b3 e5 2.Bb2 Nc6 3.e3 Nf6 4.Bb5 Bd6!? The reason I was surprised is that there is part of one chapter devoted to Black playing the Kings Indian formation. It has been my experience that a lot of players when faced with a slightly irregular opening will fall back on their favored Kings Indian. This is a place where the material is short. Also, Chapter 4 is devoted to the London defense 1.b3 d5 2. Bb2 Bf5. FM Rozman seems to only consider this specific move order followed by Black playing either 3.e3 Nbd7 or 3.e3 e6. He makes a point that White should have an idea based on hunting down the Bf5 but, doesn't consider move orders involving an early c6. He suggests only 1.b3 d5 2.Bb2 Bf5 3.e3 Nf6 4.Nf3 e6 5.h3!? or 4Nbd7 5.Be2 e6 6.Nh4. What happens if Black delays putting the bishop on f5 or inserts h6 earlier? This seems to be just brushed by in the analysis. There is also no mention of defenses with 1c5, 1f5 or 1b5. This was disappointing. All in all I would recommend this to anyone who is starting out with 1.b3 either as a first opening or as a good backup. I would also suggest that players who are regular 1.b3'ers for the sake of some of the material. My recommendation comes with a caveat, be aware that some lines will be somewhat short sighted.


Overview

1.b3 Bash by IM Levy Rozman – Your Secret Weapon for the Opening

1.b3 Bash – Your Secret Weapon For The Opening
1.b3 Bash – Your Secret Weapon with IM Levy Rozman

This course gives you a complete repertoire based on 1.b3. You are going to get an advantage by surprising your opponents, playing positions that only you’re familiar with, and your opponents are not.

You will know the nuances. You will know exactly when on move 4 or 5 they will do something inaccurate. That’s really the key idea behind this system.

Most club players play the same openings over and over again: 1.e4, 1.d4, 1.c4, 1.Nf3… you name it. You probably know those pretty well, but so does your opponent.

There is nothing wrong with that approach…

Except that you always need to be up to date with all the lines and variations in the Slav, Nimzo, Sicilian, French, and the list goes on and on.

On top of that, you need to constantly dive deeper and deeper into the opening tree to stay competitive. You have to remember TONs of opening moves just to avoid a carefully prepared trap. That’s a lot of theory, and it takes HARD WORK and many, many hours of your precious time to learn just a single line…

Is there a better way?

Wouldn’t it be great to play the opening that you know well and let your opponent do all the “struggling”? What if I told you that you could add this kind of weapon to your repertoire in a matter of DAYS, not weeks or months?

That’s the reason why today, we’re introducing the secret weapon for white – the Complete Repertoire with 1.b3
