Realise a bit of a pain in the @rse to do so, but could anyone give an idea which lines are covered.

ChessBase are rubbish and don't say what's on there.
Fair enough for a Martin/Davies 'this week it's...' jobbie but with a Bologan product a TOC would certainly shift a few more copies one would think.

Could anyone perchance provide an idea as to what Mr Bologan looks at? Key: classical, fianchetto.

Mine is set to arrive tomorrow (also got the first 2 volumes of Karsten Mueller's endgame DVD's coming in the same order Grin); I have Bologan's book so the DVD should be a nice compliment to it (or so I hope!)

I received it today. Could only take a short look - it makes a good impression on first sight.

Perhaps they were just looking at what Bologan was wearing.

Suggest the tanktop is entirely appropriate for the Caro Kann, (no doubt sensible slacks and carpet slippers off camera) but one would hope for a sartorial something a little more lively for the KID. Perhaps they can team up with Queer Eye for a Straight Guy to sort things out.

Top player and a reliable guide who doesn't appear to hold back. Unlike many recent chessbase DVDs, looks like it may be a worthy purchase.

Hi.
The Chess-Base web-shop has just released a DVD on Caro-Kann by  Bologan.

http://www.chessbase.com/shop/product.asp?pid=449

If one look at the first sample screen-shot, it seems however there perhaps could come an additional DVD on another opening by Bologan soon...

Cheers / Anders


Hi again.

Now take a look at the third screenshot from the link to the KID DVD in the ChessBase shop

http://www.chessbase.com/shop/product.asp?pid=469

They do seem to have some difficulty keeping KID and Caro-Kann apart at ChessBase ...  Roll Eyes

Cheers / Anders

The DVD by Bologan is now available.
  

It has been said that chess players are good at two things, Chess and Excuses.  It has also been said that Chess is where all excuses fail! In order to win you must dare to fail!

I had the chance to talk to the man himself (Bologan/0 during the recent Greek Club Ch in Kallithea and he told me that he has done all the videos for his KID DVD and that he reccomends different things that these in his book. So, it looks that together with his book, his DVD will be a good KID repertoire for all levels.

The picture is correct. The text is wrong, it should say...

"In his first six videos you will find recommendations for use against side lines (1. d4, 2.d3, 2.Nc3, 3.f3), the Exchange Variation, the Panov system and the e4-c4-system (holding back with d4)."

The first video is a very long one  Cheesy
  

Those who want to go by my perverse footsteps play such pawn structure with fuzzy atypical still strategic orientations

Yup, it's starting to look that way! That would definitely be a DVD worth getting.

That's a pretty funny bungling of images too!  Grin

Thanks!
