    The camp of GM Papaioannou - My Repertoire against 1.Nf3 and 1.c4 is already a digital product. 

    This product includes all the videos from the workshop as well as the PGN file related to the training sessions. Overall, the material consists of 10.5 hours of video and a PGN database, which includes 170 files! 

    You will find the following lectures:

    ✅ Typical Strategies after 1.Nf3

    ✅ Typical Strategies after 1.c4 e5

    ✅ 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.g3 d5 - Play the Torre Reversed

    ✅ 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.c4 e6 - Repertoire against 3.Nc3 and 3.e3

    ✅ 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3 a6!? - Complete Repertoire for Black

    ✅ Repertoire for Black after 1.c4 e5 - Part 1

    ✅ Repertoire for Black after 1.c4 e5 - Part 2

    Now, we shall take a look at the different lectures.

    Typical Strategies after 1.Nf3

    In this lecture, GM Ioannis Papaioannou examines the most important strategies that we should know after 1.Nf3 Nf6

    1-94137e891b

    We are going to build our repertoire starting with the move 1...Nf6. This fits well with the Nimzo- or Bogo-Indian, as after a subsequent d2-d4, the game may transpose. If instead, we play 1...d5, White can play 2.d4, when we end up in some line of the Queen's Gambit. After studying the material in this lecture, you will easily understand the following theoretical lectures.

    SAMPLE EXAMPLE

    Chess Viewer KTJXMQHCVOKEENC8QGZCRNSQ32XSLBM2

    Typical Strategies after 1.c4 e5

    In this lecture, we are going to discuss the major plans in the reversed Sicilian. It occurs after the moves 1.c4 e5

    2-4375d42d28

    Since we are planning to answer 2.Nc3 with 2...Bb4, we should be very well prepared to play a position with doubled pawns. Additionally, in this lecture, GM Papaioannou covers all the important strategies that you should know in the position arising after 2.g3 c6.

    SAMPLE EXAMPLE

    Chess Viewer 6U28Y11JNDOBH8XSZMPVTPBNOPDOPLRS

    1.Nf3 Nf6 2.g3 d5 - Play the Torre Reversed

    This lecture features the position arising after 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.g3 d5 3.Bg2 c6

    3-d92df357a0

    Against the Reti, Papaioannou likes to play the reversed Torre setup. It is an independent system, which means you can play it even if you play kings Indian, Grunfeld, Nimzo, or Slav. You can always employ it against this move order.
    In this position, White has three logical ways to continue
    1) Early c2-c4
    2) Setups with d2-d3
    3) Setups with d2-d4
    Against all these options, you can play just by applying the correct plans and ideas. Concrete theory is not required.

    SAMPLE EXAMPLE

    1.Nf3 Nf6 2.c4 e6 - Repertoire against 3.Nc3 and 3.e3

    This lecture offers a repertoire for Black against the Reti/English line, based on the Nimzo-Indian spirit: 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 Bb4

    4-846ee4cbb4

    We deal with minor moves as well as major options like 4.Qc2 and 4.g4. What's important, the whole repertoire is based almost solely on understanding and not concrete memorization, which is why there is only one theory file, and the course is primarily comprised of model games explaining Black's ideas.

    The one theory file pertains to 3.e3. Still, it's an understanding-based type of line all the same.

    SAMPLE EXAMPLE

    Chess Viewer M21HYWALQDRBOAX812XJYG58EUITSBAQ

    1.Nf3 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3 a6!? - Complete Repertoire for Black

    This lecture offers a repertoire for Black in the Romanishin System, i.e. 1.Nf3 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.g3 a6!?

    5-392abf3e0d

    Black carries out an unusual idea of a flank pawn break early on in the opening, with a clear strategic goal of exchanging a flank pawn for a more central pawn early on in the game and establish a strong centre later. Obviously, ...b5 also opens the possibility of an extended fianchetto that we will often use to neutralize the white g2-bishop. After studying the lecture, you will be ready to play this very practical line against any opponent.

    SAMPLE EXAMPLE

    Chess Viewer 0RFYKMXNVKI6QYT4AZAEM6H2J35OFQ1T

    Repertoire for Black after 1.c4 e5 - Part 1

    The first part of our repertoire against the English Opening deals with 1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Bb4

    6-b90960cf29

    This is only the third most popular move, but still a very decent one! In many lines, we get positions in the spirit of the Nimzo-Indian. Now there are three possible scenarios:
    1) If White lets us, we take on c3 and double his pawns. This is often combined with ...f5.
    2) If White avoids the doubled pawns with Qc2 and follows it up with a3, we take on c3 and (if he takes back with the queen) go for ...d5. We get a very active position resembling a reversed Open Sicilian, where White has lost some time moving his queen.
    3) If White plays 3.Nd5, we support our bishop with 3...a5 (3...Bc5 and 3...Be7 are fully-fledged alternatives).

    SAMPLE EXAMPLE

    Chess Viewer 4MQ4TZ0XP46N8KMIARV6P6S57G7JSENT

    Repertoire for Black after 1.c4 e5 - Part 2

    The second and final part of our repertoire against the English Opening is based on 1.c4 e5 2.g3 c6

    7-bde3ea3877

    Our suggested repertoire is based on this move - this reversed c3-Sicilian is a popular way to meet 2.g3. We specifically pick the move order 2...c6 and not 2...Nf6 3.Bg2 c6 (which of course also fine), because we want to keep the option of playing ...f5!
    After 2...c6, White's options are limited since Black is ready to occupy the center with 3...d5.
