So lernt man heute Schach! Die ChessBase Tutorials sind eine neue Reihe im ChessBase-Verlagsprogramm. Jede Ausgabe enthält eine DVD und ein ausführliches Begleitheft. Die vielen Leser des ChessBase-Magazins haben dieses Konzept bereits schätzen gelernt. Das zweisprachige Heft bietet eine Übersicht und einen schnellen Einstieg in die einzelnen Eröffnungsvarianten. Und auf der DVD finden Sie dann die ausführlichen Videolektionen (komplett zweisprachig: Deutsch und Englisch) von mehreren erstklassigen Trainern und Großmeistern.

Neu: ChessBase Tutorials Eröffnungen # 01: Offene Spiele

Jede Partie beginnt mit der Eröffnung - und endet manchmal dort auch schon. Das muss nicht sein. Mit den ChessBase Tutorials ist man mit wenig Zeitaufwand schnell auf der Höhe. "Eröffnungen # 01: Offene Spiele" (1.e4 e5) ist der erste Teil einer fünfbändigen Reihe über die Grundlagen der Schacheröffnung. Hier erfahren Sie von versierten Turnierspielern und Experten der jeweiligen Eröffnung, was Sie über die einzelnen Gebiete unbedingt wissen müssen, welche grundlegenden Pläne verfolgt werden, wie man sie spielt und welche Fallstricke man beachten muss. In 24 deutschen Videolektionen zeigen die Top-Spieler Jan Gustafsson, Dr. Karsten Müller, Niclas Huschenbeth (Deutscher Meister 2010) und Elisabeth Pähtz, was sie über Königsgambit, Wiener Partie, Italienisch, Evans-Gambit, Zweispringerspiel, Schottisch, Steinitz- und Berliner Verteidigung, Offenen Spanier oder Abtauschvariante, Marshall, Philidor und Russisch u.v.m. wirklich wissen müssen.

How do you do your opening training? Do you try in vain to commit to memory sequences of moves as far as move 15 or even 20? Do you work your way through thick tomes in order to laboriously collect the most important information? Or do you simply keep on playing the same opening, just because by chance you learned a little about it years ago and because it is in any case too complicated and time-consuming to learn something new? Or do you simply not bother with opening theory, but continue to be annoyed about being at a disadvantage before you really get into the game proper? Fortunately there is no need for opening training to be like that, because for all those who are looking for a compact and entertaining survey of the openings, there are now the new ChessBase Opening Tutorials . The first volume of this new series contains in 24 lectures all the basic knowledge for the open game, that is to say all the important systems after 1.e4 e5. In video clips of at most ten to fifteen minutes, masters and grandmasters explain the variations and the ideas behind the various ways of starting the game, meaning that you can concentrate on the essentials.

The advantage for a club player: for an investment in time of only four to six hours, you get an overview of such different openings as the King's Gambit, the Ruy Lopez, the Giuoco Piano, the Scotch and the Petroff, to name but the most important and the most popular. And who knows, perhaps during this instructive and entertaining tour through the world of the openings, you will discover a totally new favourite opening, which you had previously not noticed or which had appeared too complicated. For your next game at the club evening or during a team match, you will have a nice surprise up your sleeve for your opponent. We have made sure that there is variety in our video lectures by dividing up the task of presenting the material to you among several authors. The first volume contains videos in English by Lawrence Trent, Valeri Lilov, Lars Schandorff and Adrian Mikhalchishin. But at the same time on the DVD you will find the 24 videos in German, for which Jan Gustafsson, Karsten Müller, Niclas Huschenbeth (German champion 2010) and Elisabeth Pähtz took their place in front of the camera. But not only the idea of several authors on a single DVD is new; there is also the bi-lingual accompanying booklet, which is set up in the same

format as ChessBase Magazine and which runs through briefly in print all the openings which were presented in the videos. This was conceived for those of you who would like to do more than sit in front of a computer, but would like from time to time to pick up and flick through a book. This turns chess training into fun, and it equips you for the serious business of playing the game.
