For sure some people in this forum are curious about this new DVD from Chessbase!?

"My best games in the Bayonett Attack" would have been a much better name for this DVD
because it´s solely about the Advance System and mainly on the Bayonett Attack!!

[For convenience I have changed the order of videos in this (my) table of contents.
Obviously this DVD was produced in 2 steps (first videos #1-7, later #8-10)
and #8+9 obviously belong to #1-3 ]

TABLE OF CONTENTS (1e4 c6 2d4 d5 3e5 Bf5)

#10 (38:37) Shirov-Bologan, Foros 2006

It´s no attacking manual for white as Shirov analyses and comments very fairly & objectively
and states correctly that´s on white´s turn to prove something.
These are well made and instructive videos, also for any black Caro-Kann player.
Maybe especially worthy for those who have worked with Martin´s repertoire DVD
or Houska´s repertoire book and aren´t happy with 3e5 c5 ...
