The Accelerated Dragon is an exciting way to meet 1 e4. By stationing the Bishop on g7, Black hopes to breathe fire on the White queenside. In Part One of a two DVD series, IM Andrew Martin covers the most popular White counter among Grandmasters, the Maroczy Bind. He gives two ways for Black to meet this strong system, one sharp, one solid. Take your pick!

1) Classical Variation

2) Lines with Nxc6

3) The Pseudo-Yugoslav attack.

The conclusion is reached that Black is in fine shape against all of these ideas.

In 2010, The Accelerated Dragon remains an excellent counter to 1 e4.

Andrew Brings a Modern Style to this surprise Opening Weapon for White

This dvd is New and Complete covering all variations of the

Kings Gambit Accepted and Declined

1. e4 e5 2. f4

White offers a pawn to divert the Black e-pawn and wants to build a stronger center with d2-d4. Theory has shown that in order for Black to maintain the one pawn advantage, moves must be made that seriously weaken the position of the black pieces. King's Gambit is one of the oldest documented openings as it was examined by the 17th century Italian chess player Giulio Polerio.

Volume 78 Learn to Play the Nimzo-Indian The Easy Way

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Bb4

Other move orders, such as 1.c4 e6 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.d4 Bb4, are also feasible. In the Encyclopaedia of Chess Openings scheme, the Nimzo-Indian is classified as E20-E59.

This hypermodern opening was developed by Grandmaster Aron Nimzowitsch who introduced it to master-level chess in the early 20th century. Unlike most Indian openings the Nimzo-Indian does not involve an immediate fianchetto, although Black often follows up with ...b6 and ...Bb7. By pinning White's knight Black prevents the threatened 4.e4 and seeks to inflict doubled pawns on White. White will attempt to create a pawn centre and develop his pieces to prepare for an assault on the Black position.

Black's delay in committing to a pawn structure makes the Nimzo-Indian (sometimes colloquially referred to as the "Nimzo") a very flexible defence to 1.d4. It can also transpose into lines of the Queen's Gambit or Queen's Indian Defence. The Nimzo-Indian is a very popular and well-respected defence to 1.d4, and has been played by every world champion since Capablanca. Indeed, White often plays 3.Nf3 to avoid the Nimzo-Indian, allowing him to meet 3...Bb4+ (the Bogo-Indian Defence) with 4.Bd2 or 4.Nbd2 rather than 4.Nc3.
