Top-Level Repertoire against French and Caro-Kann (3h and 6min Running Time) 

IM Kushager Krishnater continues his 1.e4 repertoire. We are happy to introduce his course Top-Level Repertoire against French and Caro-Kann.
True to his analytical approach, IM Krishnater suggests theoretically challenging, but less explored systems. That's why his suggestions have huge practical value in an over-the-board game.

Play the Zukertort System (8h Running Time) 

We are happy to announce another fascinating database by GM Mihail Marin - Play the Zukertort System. The main position of the current repertoire arises after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 e6 3.e3
White is ready to proceed with Bd3 followed by 0-0, and b2-b3. Depending on Black's choice, we can also go for an early c2-c4. This is an extremely flexible setup that would help you avoid tons of theory. Even though Black has a huge choice, you can handle the arising positions by mainly relying on your understanding of the typical plans and ideas.
While working on this amazing project, GM Mihail Marin analyzed the Zukertort System with the strongest computers. The conclusion is that this tricky setup can be played at any level.

Play the Alapin Variation - Part 2 (4h and 42 Running Time) 

We are happy to announce the release of the second and final part of the series Play the Alapin Variation. This course completes our Alapin repertoire against the Sicilian Defence.
The current course is dedicated to the position arising after 1.e4 c5 2.c3 d5
This is the second main response to the Alapin Variation (together with 2...Nf6 which was covered in Part 1). For a long period of time, theoreticians used to believe that Black solves his opening problems without too much trouble. GM Basso and GM Jobava provide in-depth analysis. They prove that White can pose huge practical problems while in most cases playing with a draw in his pocket. For sure, the suggested repertoire will take your opponent out of his comfort zone.

Setups with g2-g3 - Universal Solution for Black - Part 1 (2h and 56min Running Time) 

We are happy to present the first project by GM Igor Lysyj - Setups with g2-g3 - Universal Solution for Black-Part 1. Many Black players have huge difficulties creating a sound repertoire against all the Reti/Catalan setups based on g2-g3. There are two reasons for that:
1) White is very flexible in terms of move orders
2) In the arising positions, understanding is much more important than concrete theory
Fortunately, the famous theoretical GM Lysyj is here to provide us with a very consistent setup that can be used against all the Catalan/Reti systems. His setup is based on the moves d7-d5, Ng8-f6, e7-e6, Bf8-e7, and 0-0.
In the first part of this two-part series, the author deals with all White's systems, except the Catalan Opening. The Catalan will be the subject of the second part.

3...a6 4.Ba4 Nge7 - Practical Repertoire against Ruy Lopez (2h and 10min Running Time) 

We are happy to introduce another fascinating project by GM Michael Roiz - 3...a6 4.Ba4 Nge7 - Practical Repertoire against Ruy Lopez.
This system is getting very popular recently. Black has gone for it in a bunch of high-level games. In most cases, our idea is to follow with ...Ng6 on the next move. Years ago, grandmasters believed that this system was dubious since White could obtain a slight but stable plus. Modern engines, however, showed how Black can solve all the problems in all the problematic positions.

1.e4 e5 - Top-Level Repertoire for Black (7h and 12min Running Time) 

GM Ivan Cheparinov has just released one of his most amazing projects. In just one database, the famous theoretician managed to provide a complete 1.e4 e5 repertoire for Black. The repertoire is designed to be as practical as possible, keeping in mind that all the lines should be suitable for top-level players. Against all the major openings, such as Ruy Lopez, Italian, and Scotch, Cheparinov suggests somewhat less explored systems that he manages to revive with strong novelties.
