1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Bf4 - Complete Repertoire for White (Approx. 2.5 hours Video Running Time) 

After the standard opening moves 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6, White has a typical choice between 3.Nf3, 3.Nc3 and 3.g3. All three lead to big opening variations in which the theory branches deeply and widely. Sometimes white players avoid this early by playing 2.Bf4 (the London system), 2.Bg5 (the Trompowsky attack) or 2.Nc3 (the Veresov Attack), trying to get a less theoretical type of game. However, all these systems have a downside in that White usually delays or altogether omits to play c2-c4, which decreases his influence on the centre. That said, it might be possible to get the best of both worlds by playing 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Bf4!?, a variation that has been largely unexplored throughout chess history.

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

Dynamic Anti - Catalan Repertoire 

In the introduction to the current database, GM Kuljasevic writes, "Catalan Opening is one of the most popular closed openings on all levels. For White players, its main appeal is in its general soundness and flexibility. White usually expects to nurture a slight positional advantage in the middlegame or even well into the endgame, which is not something that black players typically enjoy. Moreover, White have several different move orders, combining moves d4, c4, g3 and Nf3 in different sequences, to get their favourite Catalan positions. Thus, I decided to create a 'Dynamic Anti-Catalan Repertoire for Black' with two main goals in mind: 1. To provide an opening repertoire that leads to dynamic positions in Catalan. 2. To address all the important move orders that White players typically use in this opening". The database includes 10 theoretical chapters and 15 interactive test positions.

The Modern Makagonov - Complete Repertoire against King's Indian Defence 

The modern way of fighting King's Indian Defense involves a little move h2-h3. Its idea is not just to protect g4-square from ...Ng4 and ...Bg4 sorties, but also to prepare ambitious g2-g4 expansion. This can be a very effective prophylactic measure against Black's typical kingside play, as well as a springboard to White's kingside attack(!) - as discovered by the Soviet Grandmaster Vladimir Makogonov, after whom this whole system was named. White has traditionally used a combination of Ng1-f3 and h2-h3 on moves 5 and 6 to achieve this setup, which was investigated by Grandmaster Mihail Marin in another Modern chess database.
