Arkadij Naiditsch

Dirty Chess DVD, by Arkadij Naiditsch
GM Arkadij Naiditsch releases his first DVD on the market, yet it is unique by its nature right from the start. “Dirty Chess” concentrates on an aspect of a chess game that no top author has analysed in depth so far, and makes it in a fun and creative way with multiple concrete examples from real life.

“Dirty Chess” will teach you how to “show off!” in the opening, how to bring “Surprising faces!” in the middlegame, and how to “Flag him!” in the endgame.

Release date: May 2012



“The Complete Slav”, Book 1
