To clarify, this is the DVD in question : http://chessbase-shop.com/en/products/two_knight%E2%80%98s_defence
As you may know, this DVD is a repertoire in the Two Knights from the White side. As you almost certainly don't know, I've done a lot of prep on the Two Knights from the Black side, especially the line 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 d5 5.ed Na5 6.Bb5+ c6 7.dc bc 8.Be2 h6 9.Nf3 e4 10.Ne5 Bc5 and now if 11.0-0, 11...Qd6 12.Ng4 Bxg4 13.Bxg4 h5 14.Be2 Ng4
As you can see from the following image preview, the aforementioned line is under discussion, albeit briefly, I'm assuming. Can someone who has this DVD please tell me what he says about this position?
I don't have the DVD, but I really love this line as black. I actually figured the whole line out by accident at home with a computer when working out my repertoire. I feel that line is even slightly better for black. I feel white has to tread carefully to survive. Here are some sample lines that I found while analyzing with my comp:
EDIT: I just realized the DVD is for the white side. I have no idea why he would recommend this for white unless there is some crazy line which stops the rook sac on h2. I feel this whole system with 11. O-O is great for black
OMG...I literally worked out the same lines with my computer...
The best line for White there is actually 15.g3 Nxh2!! 16.d4! IMO, but Black is still doing well.
yep. That's probably one of white's better tries if he accidentally falls into this line
Isn't 16.d4 the only move?
If he/she wants to survive yes. If they know nothing, then Kxh2 is suicide and probably going to be played
I haven't actually checked my analysis for a while and now I'm not sure anymore... Here's what I have:
Okay, my verdict... Black is better in pretty much all variations. He doesn't win instantly, but should convert
Yeah...I have those exact variations, plus others (I.e. 14.Bh3)
14.Bh3 Ng4 15.g3 Nxf2 16.Rxf2 - what next? Immediatelly BxR or...?
I have 16...h4 there
I have the same.

Dude you have spammed this link on every Two Knights Defense thread. Advertising much?
