Power Play 19: Attack with 1.e4 Chess Opening (Part 2) - GM Daniel King (Physical Disc)
Power Play 19: Attack with 1.e4 (Part 2) – GM Daniel King

This DVD provides you with a repertoire of attacking lines against different chess openings, like The Scandinavian, Alekhine’s Defence, The Petroff, The Philidor, The Pirc, and The Modern Defence (1. e4 g6).

Many of these chess openings are very popular in club chess, yet they are often underestimated by players of the white pieces.

Using his wealth of experience playing with 1 e4, Grandmaster Daniel King explains the chess openings and provides you with an aggressive system against each of them.

This is the second part of Daniel King’s project ‘Attack with 1.e4’ (part I dealt with the Sicilian, the French, The Caro Kann and 1…e5).

King’s recommendations aim to put your opponent under pressure right from the start of the game. And when players are under pressure, mistakes occur.

This is a practical repertoire – if we study chess openings we want to be sure to use them in our games. After just a few moves, you will be dictating play.

  • Suitable for club players
  • Model games with typical middlegame and endgame strategy
  • Up-to-date theory
  • Repertoire recommendations for Black
