This DVD is aimed at presenting a repertoire based on meeting 1. e4 with 1… e5 for the club player. Coverage starts after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 when GM Shankland recommends the Schliemann variation, but played in a more classical way, aiming to take advantage of the extra central pawn in the long term instead of seeking immediate confrontation. All relevant side-lines from move 3 onward are also covered.

Product Description

Empire Chess – VOL 69

This DVD is aimed at presenting a repertoire based on meeting 1. e4 with 1… e5 for the club player. Coverage starts after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 when GM Shankland recommends the Schliemann variation, but played in a more classical way, aiming to take advantage of the extra central pawn in the long term instead of seeking immediate confrontation. All relevant side-lines from move 3 onward are also covered.

The main appeal of choosing the Schliemann is that White does not have many credible side-lines; advocates of this repertoire will be able to play the presented analysis over the board. This DVD will provide club level players with a strong repertoire that they can rely on.
