Featuring

Armed with Pawn Endgame Essentials
GM Dzindzichashvili teaches the important aspects of elementary pawn endgames including the opposition, and positions with pawn breakthroughs, outside passed pawns, potential outside passed pawns, and protected passed pawns.

Minor Piece Endgame Weapons
GM Dzindzichashvili discusses the general principles of play in bishop endgames including bishops of opposite color endings.

Pounding a Material Advantage
GM Dzindzichashvili presents the important theoretical positions that arise in endgames where one side has a material advantage, for example: Q v R; R v B; R v N; R v P; B + RP ("wrong-colored" queening square); N v P; and other material imbalances where zugzwang or stalemate (or avoidance of stalemate) are important factors.

Pulverizing Pawn Endgames
GM Dzindzichashvili examines the tactical aspects of certain pawn endgames - ones that do not adhere to simple generalizations but instead involve accurate calculation in their resolution. Examples include the Reti Maneuver, stalemate themes, zugzwangs, gain and loss of tempo, relative king activity. This tape is an advanced sequel to Armed with Pawn Endgame Essentials.

Pummeling Success in Unbalanced Endgames
GM Dzindzichashvili examines correct technique and calculation in the endgame using examples from grandmaster play. Examples include: R + P endgames; K + P endgames; bishop of opposite color endings; and unbalanced positions where concrete calculation and formulation of a winning plan is paramount.

Rolling with Rooks and Pawns
GM Dzindzichashvili teaches the basic principles of elementary rook endgames including the critical theoretical R + P v R positions that are essential knowledge for all chessplayers (e.g., the Lucena and Philidor positions).

Shattering Minor Piece Endings
GM Dzindzichashvili further examines bishops of opposite color endings, and discusses the general principles of play in B v N endgames.

Slashing Advanced Endgame Tactics
GM Dzindzichashvili analyzes several beautiful drawing resources in endgames which are apparently easy wins for the side with the material advantage. All of these examples are optically and esthetically satisfying, as the "losing side" pulls off the draw - seemingly against all odds and often in incredible fashion.

Storming Victory in Irregular Endgames
GM Dzindzichashvili discusses endgames with material imbalances including: defense based on fortresses in positions with Q v 2 minor pieces; Q (+ P) v R (+P); endgames with the advantage of the Exchange; bishops of opposite color endgames; B v N endgames; N v Ps; R v Ps.

Warring Endgame Tactics
GM Dzindzichashvili examines tactical solutions (including decoy, stalemate, perpetual mate threats) in certain endgames of type R v P and R v Ps; bishops of opposite color endings; N + P v B; pawn endings; and R + B v R.

Featuring

The Dragon's Accelerated Return
This dvd expands on the Black opening repertoire recommended by GM Dzindzichashvili - indeed the Accelerated Dragon not only takes its own place within that repertoire but may also be reached when White declines the Dzindzi Indian Defense by playing an early e2-e4.

The Dragon's Accelerated Battle Over the Maroczy Bind
More analysis and recommendations for Black by GM Dzindzichashvili in the Accelerated Dragon concentrating on Black's options after White establishes the Maroczy Bind with c2-c4.

Dzindzi Indian Defense
GM Dzindzichashvili explains the stategic and tactical nuances of an original Black defensive system beginning with 1.d4 g6 2.c4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c5 4.d5 Bxc3+!? 5.bxc3 f5 developed from the grandmaster's own tournament practice.

Unstoppable Benoni Attacks
In a companion dvd to Dzindzi Indian Defense the author examines the consequences of White's attempts to avoid the sequence 1.d4 g6 2.c4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c5 4.d5 Bxc3!? Transpositions to Benoni-like structures (the Dzindzi-Benoni!?) and certain variations of the Pirc/Modern complex are explored from Black's perspective.

An Original System For Grinding the Sicilian Defense
Tired of losing your way in all of the theory of the Open Sicilian?? Let GM Dzindzichashvili introduce you to a sound positional method of combatting this most fearsome of Black's answers to 1.e4. Play centers around the line 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.f4 and a Black doubled c-pawn complex.

Crushing Lines Against Pirc, French, Caro-Kann & Alekhine Defenses
GM Dzindzichashvili explores new ideas for White in lines against the French Winawer (1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5 and now 5.Bd2), the Caro-Kann (using the Panov Attack), the Pirc (White system with Be3/h3) and Alekhine's Defense (1.e4 Nf6 2.e5 Nd5 3.c4 Nb6 4.c5 Nd5 and now 5.Nc3).

 

New White Secrets Against The Two Knights Defense GM Dzindzichashvili analyses the Two Knights Defense from White's perspective, concentrating on his new ideas in the system 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.d4 exd4 5.e5.

Scotch Gambit - Giuoco Piano: Win Either Way
GM Dzindzichashvili completes his opening repertoire recommendations for players of the White pieces by examining some old but potent variations of the Giuoco Piano and Scotch Gambit. This dvd nicely compliments (but can be viewed independently of) New White Secrets Against The Two Knights Defense.

The Contemporary Shield of the Nimzo Indian
GM Dzindzichashvili continues his coverage of the Nimzo-Indian Defense from Black's perspective, examining systems such as the Saemich Variation (4.a3), the 4.f3 Variation, and important "anti-Huebner" systems such as the Rubenstein (4.e3 c5 5.Nge2), and the Petrosian (4.e3 c5 5.Bd3 Nc6 6.Nge2).

The Legendary Shield of the Nimzo Indian
GM Dzindzichashvili provides the viewer with a solid Black repertoire based on the Huebner variation of the Nimzo-Indian Defense. In this video he also covers (from Black's perspective) coverage of the 4.Nf3 Variation (followed by g2-g3) and the Leningrad Variation (4.Bg5).

 

Ambushed by the Bogo Indian
GM Dzindzichashvili provides the viewer with a compliment to his Nimzo-Indian repertoire as he shows the viewer how to deal with 3.Nf3 by employing the Bogo Indian (3...Bb4+). His recommended lines for Black involve variations beginning with 4.Bd2 Qe7, and 4.Nbd2 0-0. Blunting the D4 Dagger
GM Dzindzichashvili completes his new Black repertoire against 1.d4 by providing the viewer with methods for combating various White systems such as the Trompowsky, the London, the Torre and the Colle.

Butchering the Gruenfeld
In his new White repertoire for the 1.d4 player, GM Dzindzichashvili provides the viewer with a number of methods for meeting the Gruenfeld. He offers the player with the White pieces the option of meeting the Gruenfeld with a kingside fianchetto (g2-g3, followed by Bf1-g2) or playing systems involving Bc1-g5 or Bc1-f4.

 

Queen's Gambit Guillotined In this video, GM Dzindzichashvili prepares the viewer to handle the White side of the Queen's Gambit. The primary focus of his investigations are the Exchange Variation and his recommendations for meeting the Tarrasch Defense.

Queen's Indian Massacred
In this dvd, GM Dzindzichashvili prepares the viewer to handle the White side of the Queen's Indian Defense with the move 4.Bg5. He also deals with his recommendation for White against the Bogo Indian Defense (he likes 4.Bd2), and what to do when Black steers the game into a Benoni Defense with 3...c5.

The King's Indian Assassination
In his new White repertoire for the 1.d4 player, GM Dzindzichashvili provides the viewer with a system for meeting the King's Indian Defense based on a development scheme with Bc1-f4

e2-e3.

If one element characterized the games of teenage Garry Kasparov, it was the whirlwind aggression of his play. By 1981, though still a tender 18 years of age, his ferocious talent demanded that he clear ever-higher hurdles. Now it was time to take on the grown-ups, and for him this meant one thing - the
