Tactic Toolbox London System - Simon Williams (PC-DVD)
The London System is becoming increasingly popular, both at grandmaster and club level. The theory of the opening is developing quickly, with new things being tested all the time. This, in return, gives rises to fresh tactical ideas which should belong to the basic arsenal of any London devotee – after all, tactics remains the be-all and end-all of the game. On this DVD, Simon Williams shows all the complications in the London System one has to know as White, giving you the tactical tools for a successful practice – the player who knows the typical motifs has an advantage over the board. Using the interactive FritzTrainer format which invites the viewer to answer questions by entering the moves on the screen, the “Ginger GM“, intensively and systematically, makes your familiar with a multitude of typical tactical finesses in positions of the London System. Of course, those who don’t yet have this opening in their repertoire can also profit – after all, a sharp combinatorial vision is always useful in chess.
