Get Ready for Tournament Success with a GM’s Favorite Lines!

If you are a tournament player, you’ll know the importance of being armed with a ton of opening “weapons”. With cash prizes at stake everyone wants to stack all the advantages on their side. Catching out your opponent early on is the best way to do that.

If your rival has to think for themselves, not only will they be using up all their time on the clock but there is also a big chance they’ll go wrong.

If you’re serious about getting the edge in competition chess then this superb 6 volume bundle is essential material.
The 14 hour Encyclopedia of Chess Openings  is based on GM Lev Alburts, Roman Dzindzichashvili and Eugene Perelshteynis best selling book “Chess Openings for Black, Explained: A Complete Repertoire.” and “Chess openings for White Explained“. Two of the most popular opening books of all time.

Now you get all this material conveniently presented in video format and demonstrated by Roman himself. Plus, it has been updated to include new recommendations.

This is a complete reference guide on 47 different openings and should be referred to when you want to change things up and employ a new idea. Or perhaps you’ve struggled against a system used by one of your rivals and want to know how a GM would tear it apart.

GM Roman Dzindzichashvili is a world renowned openings expert and has the rare achievement of having won both the US and Russian Championships. He has also won the World Open event and, perhaps most impressively, has acted as coach and trained for both Anatoly Karpov and Garry Kasparov. This is one man you want in your corner!

    Download was easy, and the content is excellent. I wish there was a file with a contents list for the downloaded videos, as it is impossible to navigate your way easily to a specific opening covered in Roman’s encyclopedia.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5


    GM Roman Dzindzichashvili is a 2-time U.S. champion and is widely regarded as one of the premier opening experts in the world. His broad knowledge of this phase of the game will help prepare you for the more crucial middlegame phase which you will enter with a more favorable position than your opponent. In addition, he shows you the various tricks and traps to set or avoid. He also explains what to do when your opponent plays weird openings such as the Hippo or Elephant Gambit. You will also save critical time on your clock by knowing exactly what to do. These DVDs are a must if you are constantly facing an opponent who’s “booked up” on opening theory and leaving you with an inferior position.
