Sound Attacking Chess Opening Theory for White

No matter your style of play, you will find exceptional coverage of an opening to fit you. Along with the necessary chess opening theory, you will get to see these chess openings in action. 

GM Damian Lemos will share many exciting chess games showing the specific positions you can expect to reach and how to play them. Included with each course is a PGN file so you can study these games at your own pace. 

If you’re looking to shake things up right from the start, then the Deep Dive King’s Gambit is for you. GM Damian Lemos teaches you all you need to know to play this gambit with confidence when Black accepts or declines the gambit.

Positional players will find many Deep Dive courses to their liking. Choose from the Double Fianchetto, Larsen’s Opening (1.b3), and English Opening.

Did you know that Bent Larsen scored an incredible 35W 6D 6L with 1.b3? GM Lemos added a modern twist to this chess opening theory by looking at how Nakamura and Karjakin played the opening. 

You will also learn Bobby Fischer’s bait-and-switch tactic to attack along the g-file if Black blocks the diagonal with …e5 and …f6.

No opening series would be complete without covering the Queen’s Gambit. During Black Friday week, you can get the entire two-volume course, 12+ hours, for only $24!

Winning Chess Opening Theory for Black

…d5 is crucial for Black to equalize in many openings and is especially effective against 1.e4. That’s what makes the Scandinavian Defense so effective for Black. 

Instead of waiting for twenty moves to play it, you play …d5 on move 1.

Learning the correct move order will get Black free development and rapid attacks without compromising space or king safety.

Another fighting defense covered in the Deep Dive series is Alekhine’s Defense. When White attacks with pieces, you go toe-to-toe and counter-sacrifice material to open lines against White’s king.

Learn the devastating attack played by Mamedyarov and use it to score many victories in your games.

Other defenses covered in the Deep Dive Series include such classics as the Sicilian Taimanov, King’s Indian Defense, French Defense, and Pirc Defense.
