Video Running time: 5 hours 42 minutes
This DVD by Lubomir Ftacnik is an ambitious project, presenting a comprehensive set of ideas and structures in chess openings, arising after 1.d4
In 34 video chapters (plus introductions and conclusions) the author covers all 1.d4 openings - classical ones, like all Queen's Gambit lines and the Indian defences, but also many interesting gambits, like the Benko, Blumenfeld and Budapest.
The suggested choices are approved and active, but also safe for the first player. Many hours of explanations and suggestions will significantly shorten the time needed for building up a complete and workable set of opening weapons, usually called a repertoire.
Lubomir Ftacnik is a Slovak grandmaster, long term cooperator of ChessBase and dilligent analyst. For this DVD he has used his experience of three decades on the international chess scene.
Learning more about the 1.d4 repertoire will bring any player a few steps closer to the coveted grandmaster level.
