2. I am going to be honest her

2. I am going to be honest here. I don't really enjoy Mr. Valeri Lilov teaching style, although I have to compliment him on the huge improvement he has made over the years, as I own a few of his DVD´s. But I cannot deny that this is an awesome product. He gives you for d4, e4 and c4 a repertoire. I can only review with certainty the section on c4 and d4, as this is my opening choice for white. Here is what my honest thoughts are: First I start of with what I think could be improved: The summary could be used as a short reference sheet with 1 or 2 major variations, as I find myself often rewatching parts of videos where this would come in handy. But this is the only negative thing I can say about Mr Valeri Lilov despite of my dislike for his teaching style. I really enjoy the recommendations he gives e.g for the slav defense an interesting line with e3 and f4 to follow. This is a really interesting sideline and to quote him here as he sums it up perfectly: One again I do not wish to say that this Is the most perfect line, I just love it because it is unexpected[]I tried it a few times with for my previous struggle against the slav really good results. To add this line seems sound and I could not fine in my own analysis some thing huge- Black equalizes with a few natural moves BUT the position is extremely rich and as almost all openings equalize at one point I would see this as a good thing. White has easy play in this line and it reminds me a bit of the stonewall dutch. And this brings my next point home. As far as I can tell after having watched almost all stuff relating to c4 and d4 territory IM Valeri Lilov gives you an easy to learn system with concrete ideas instead of tons of theory while showing the important things. This is really great for beginners and average players, but professional players might not get the full value, although it has some interesting lines as well as main lines like the Qc2 Variation of the Nimzo-Indian. This is what I really like about this. Its clear, its concise and gives you everything you need to start playing with those Ideas. I really enjoyed it can recommend it with good intentions 8/10

Just what I needed. I'm an e4

Just what I needed. I'm an e4 player and I just needed some straight forward ways to meet the main openings so I can get some into a decent middle game. He's straight to the point, and his commentary while attacking is actually pretty funny. Definitely worth it though because it also comes with a d4 repertoire in case your a d4 player. Fully worth the 60 bucks.
