Sorry but part 2 (black point

Sorry but part 2 (black point of view) is exactly the same as part 1 ... and it is NOT about building a repertoire. Please contact me by mail, thank you .


I am so in doubt now...did any

I am so in doubt now...did anyone watch it? I am only at Chapter 3 QGD and already considering it a waste of time! This guy is great usually but here :( sounds like he doesn't know anything, confused, not prepared I don't know, not rating yet cause might be early but OMG!! Worst ever! (untill now)...


Grandmaster Jan Gustafsson (2635) gives you an overview of the real-life problems a 1.d4 player faces. By looking at every major opening from White’s perspective Jan teaches us what our options are and how to alter the move order to make life as unpleasant as possible for our opponents.

While this is a 1.d4 series, 1.c4 and 1.Nf3 are also taken into account, with their pros and cons covered against all the major lines.

This DVD teaches us all about the many different openings that can be played against 1. d4 and how white can meet each of them. This series of videos helps us to have a full understanding of how to get a good position against any of black’s openings after playing 1. d4.

Black has many different ways to play against this move, including openings such as the Queen’s Gambit, Slav, Nimzo-Indian, Queen’s Indian, King’s Indian, Grunfeld, Dutch, Benoni, Benko Gambit as well as other rare sidelines.

A very well produced DVD, explained in great detail. Jan helps us to understand the importance of being flexible with our openings, highlighting that many of the world’s top players are comfortable with all kinds of opening positions.

You’ll be learning how to mix up your opening preparation, but also how to understand what you are playing without having to memorize too many different things. By the end of the DVD, you will be completely prepared to play against any of black’s openings after 1. d4!
