Foxy Openings Mega Bundle: Dominate your Opponents in the Opening
Foxy Chess DVD Series represents the most comprehensive selection of resources for chess openings training.
We all know the benefits of studying chess openings: we get great positions, use less time and don’t fall into any traps (and maybe snare the odd victim ourselves!)
But there are a couple of problems:
- One opening course isn’t enough. We need something prepared against all our opponents’ favorite systems.
- For each one, we need ideas that are powerful and subtle enough to help us win while being quick and easy to learn.
With the Foxy Openings Mega Bundle, you get top quality coaches like GM Daniel King and IM Andrew Martin teaching you themes, not lines of theory, so you can find strong moves even when you get the inevitable unexpected reply.
Now all you need to do is pick out the relevant course from the 186(!) you get, and arm yourself with GM preparation before your games!

In these computerized days of playing engines, databases and online search tools, the chess competitor needs to keep ahead of the field by having shock weapons at his command.
On this all new Foxy Openings DVD, IM and FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin shows you a dangerous idea against the Sicilian, which most club players probably won’t have even seen!
White sets up an aggressive formation with the help of an early Be2 to be followed by f2-f4. It’s a reverse Dutch with an extra move. White’s opening plan can lead to a huge kingside attack and is lethal!
If you play 1 e4, you know that the Sicilian is difficult to meet. You can put your opponent on to the back foot right away, with the minimum of knowledge.
We present ‘A Sicilian Shock Weapon’!

On this all-new Foxy Openings DVD, IM Andrew Martin introduces the viewer to the QGA and at the same time provides repertoire suggestions to the other mainline White possibilities after 1.d4 d5.

The Deadly Scotch – IM Andrew Martin
IM Martin has prepared the Scotch Opening in case Black answers 1…e5, but he aims to use the tricky move order 1.e4 e5 2.d4 exd4 3.Nf3 and so avoid (for example) the Petroff Defense.
Throughout, we find that Martin prepares White to get up and running, set to play 1.e4 in a short amount of time.
The Sniper! – A Counter-Attacking Repertoire vs. 1.e4 or 1.d4 – GM Ron Henley
he SNIPER! is a dynamic and universal opening system that fills in the gaps for the Black player who plays the Accelerated Dragon, the Dzindzi Indian, or other Black Fianchetto defenses. Black’s system of development with 1…g6 and 2…Bg7 allows White to occupy the center but in true SNIPER! Modern style, Black strikes back with an early c5!
The SNIPER! can lead to many original or barely touched upon positions in which Black has very good theoretical chances, but even better practical chances as his opponent is on unfamiliar turf. The SNIPER! is also very rich in potential transpositions into favorable Sicilian, Dzindzi Indian, King’s Indian, or Benko Gambit type positions.
Grandmaster Ron W. Henley has spent years playing 1…g6 systems and with The SNIPER! has now bridged the gap between the Accelerated Dragon and his beloved Dzindzi Indian. In The SNIPER! DVDs he will show you how to play and his own personal recommendations against each of White’s major third move alternatives, as well as special antidotes to the Maroczy Bind.

1. d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 3. Bg5 is an unorthodox and exciting way to create difficult positions. In this territory, the reward goes to the player who has more experience of the unusual, tactical situation that occurs.
In this all-new Foxy Openings video, FIDE Senior Trainer and IM Andrew Martin maps Repertoire for White which is bound to cause your opponent problems. Steer the game in the path of your choosing right from the outset!
2. Nc3 followed by 3.Bg5 is underestimated in the theoretical manuals and you are about to find out why!
