Many club players have their favourite pet opening variations which aren´t necessarily main lines. It´s important to know how to handle these variations as your opponent will likely know his systems well. In this DVD I provide a detailed Black repetoire against many of these Offbeat Opening choices. The lines I have covered include Pseudo - Trompowsky (1.d4 d5 2. Bg5), London Systems (1.d4 with an early Bf4), Torre Attack (1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 e6 and 3. Bg5), Veresov (1.d4 Nf6 2. Nc3 d5 3. Bg5), Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (1.d4 d5 2. e4), Kings Indian Attack (1.Nf3 2.g3 3. Bg2), 1.b4, 1.b3, 1.f4, 1.g3 and 1.g4. I have gone into a lot of detail to provide a repetoire against each system, so if you know that your opponent plays a certain line, you can quickly watch the relevant chapter of the DVD for my recommendation of how to meet that variation. The subjects covered in this DVD are an essential part of any player´s opening knowledge. - Video running time: 5 h 03 min (English) - With interactive training including video feedback - Extra: 50 Model games - Including CB 12 Reader System requirements: Minimum: Pentium III 1 GHz, 1 GB RAM, Windows Vista, XP (Service Pack 3), DirectX9 graphic card with 256 MB RAM, DVD-ROM drive, Windows Media Player 9 and internet connection for program activation.

It is easy to understand why the English opening is very popular at all levels, from club player up to Grandmaster level. The variations are less forcing and superior chess skill is required to outwit your opponents in the middlegame. In the English, white plays 1.c4 and fianchettos the white kings bishop to g2. Like all good chess openings, this fights for control of the centre and posts the English Bishop on the long diagonal g2-a8. Many people view the opening as rather dull, but this is a misnomer-in fact, there are many sharp pawn sacrifices and attacking lines which have been found in recent times which give the opening some bite. As such, the English Opening is an opening that can suit a wide range of playing styles. Success in the English is based upon understanding the plans and ideas available within this interesting opening. The games in this DVD will provide with exactly that-the armoury to play the English Opening as white with confidence! Includes all of blacks main responses to the English Opening 1.c4: 1) 1.c4 e5 2) 1.c4 c5 Symmetrical English 3) 1.c4 setups against Slav, Kings Indian, Grunfeld 4) 1.c4 b6 and other minor lines IM Lorin D Costa is from London, England. He regularly plays the English Opening as white with success, and views the opening as a perfect foil to those who already play 1.d4 or 1.e4 as part of their repertoire.

Honest, objective, and informed political debates are all too rare in today´s polarized and partisan climate. Public policy is increasingly driven by ideology while political spin, distortions, and even demonizing opponents by disseminating outright lies are routine practice from Washington to the local city council. Super-heated and hyper-partisan rhetoric, increasingly homogeneous political and ideological communities, and the public´s spotty knowledge about our political system all undermine informed and considered responses to policy debates. This audiobook identifies common areas of confusion or misunderstanding about our political system, clarifying many distortions of accepted history, constitutional law, economics, and science to help listeners distinguish documented facts from the different conclusions and interpretations that may be drawn from those facts. Sheila Suess Kennedy aims to create a more informed electorate and to better ground debates in fact, from Capitol Hill to the family dinner table. Talking Politics? What You Need to Know before Opening Your Mouth provides a solid starting point from which Americans can build more persuasive arguments for their preferred policies, whatever they may be, and will interest students of political science, civics, and history, from high school to undergraduates, and the general public interested in politics and informed discussion. 1.
