Queen's Gambit: The Tarrasch Defense - Chess Opening Software on DVD
The Tarrasch Defense
The Tarrasch Defense (1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c5) is an excellent choice for Black, especially for players at club level. Offering Black the kind of free piece play that is missing from other defenses, it was a great favorite of World Champions Boris Spassky and Garry Kasparov, not to mention its originator Dr. Siegbert Tarrasch. Among the many advantages of the Tarrasch is the fact that it can be used against the English and Reti Openings. On this DVD Davies introduces the viewer to the various plans and ideas, showing how Black should react to the various plans and variations White can adopt. Armed with this material the viewer will be able to play the Tarrasch with confidence. Video running time: 3 hours 50 min.
Nigel Davies has been a Grandmaster since 1993 and is a former British Open Quickplay and U21 Champion. He has more than 30 years experience of playing the English Opening, having used it extensively in his own games.
