Proudly I'm informing you about the release of my new DVD about the Meran Variation!


The Meran Variation (1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 e6 5.e3 Nbd7 6.Bd3 dxc4 7.Bxc4 b5) is a very rich opening where a lot of different strategical as well as tactical ideas can be found. During the last century the variation has been developed by the world's greatest players which has led to labyrinth of variations within the existing theory. Since I realized myself that it's quite hard keeping track of all the subtleties and theoretical pitfalls, I thought it would quite make some sense covering the most ingenious tactical masterpieces to make the viewer more acquainted with richness of this opening. By using the interactive format, the viewer won't only be informed about the feautures of positions, but also put to test by solving the quiz questions!


Below one of the famous examples from modern practice with the Meran Variation. Hope you will enjoy the DVD as much as I did recording it!
