On this DVD, we will look at a simple-to-learn yet surprisingly effective chess opening system that White can play after 1 d4 d5.
In all cases, White will play 2 c4 – and if given the chance, 3 cxd5!
This leads to fixed pawn structures where piece play takes center stage, and in these systems, White’s pieces are always stronger than Black’s!
The main ideas and concepts are thoroughly explained by taking a detailed look at how the best players in the world handle this system.
The main goal of this DVD is to provide you with a chess opening repertoire that is easy-to-learn, but one that does not require you to spend valuable time learning vast amounts of theory.
And if you thought that these lines were boring, you’re in for a (pleasant) surprise!
