1.c4 e5 - Complete Repertoire for Black (Approx 5h Video Running Time)  Discounted 

Usually, the choice of defence against the English opening largely depends on what we play with Black against 1.d4 and, to a smaller degree, against 1.Nf3 and 1.e4. For example, a QGD player will seriously consider answering 1.c4 with 1...e6, while a Slav/Caro Kann one is likely to respond with 1...c6, etc. However, Black can use a completely different logic when approaching the question: ''What to play against 1.c4?" We can choose an independent system with black pieces, almost regardless of what our repertoire is against the other first moves. And, in that case, the most natural reply to 1.c4 is 1...e5

Ruy Lopez with 3...a6 and 4...Bc5 - Complete Repertoire for Black (Approx. 2h Running Time) 

In the introduction to the current database, GM Mihail Marin writes: "When talking about developing the bishop on c5, the modern (or Modern Chess) reader may first think of the Neo-Arkhangelsk system, while I am still nostalgic about the classical Arkhangelsk. There is a third possibility, though: Black can deviate from these by developing his knight to e7. This has been first played in the '30s but started its modern trend with two games played by Mihail Rodin in the first decade of the third Millenium. One typical aspect is that in the beginning engines seem to be very critical about this setup, but after the game advances a bit they start approving Black's strategy. In principle, White can choose between lively piece play, with chances for both sides and the classical solid approach, leaving Black with a solid and flexible position, with good chances for reaching counterplay by manoeuvring accurately."

Philidor Defence - Play the Antoshin Variation 

The Antoshin Variation of the Philidor Defense is a very interesting choice. Its theory is not very developed and easy to study. This is very practical if we compare it with other openings like the Najdorf Variation of the Sicilian Defense or the Marshall Attack of the Ruy Lopez. In general, you can choose between a solid line and a more tense one. There are usually not many forced variations, and while often a large number of move options are available, many of them end up transposing to each other. Because of this, it is often beneficial to focus on studying the themes and manoeuvres typical for the variation. Black usually cedes the centre to his opponent, accepting a slight space disadvantage and playing for a counterattack. It is important not to miss the right moment to start this counterplay and end up in a passive position.
