4. Be3 followed by 5. h3 against the Pirc/Modern complex i think if the following thread is the same DVD.

Collins recommends 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nf3. I´m afraid his coverage is very brief and incomplete.

Hi Link and Akita,

Thanks for the info guys.... I might just shell out for this one (again)!

That said, as a UK resident these DVDs are getting ever more expensive!

In the Petroff the 3.d4 response is essayed which, to my mind, logically sits well with the proposed repertoire.

Hi All

Chessbase have got the message!!

It's over 8 hours long (52 Lessons),c3 Sicilian, Panov Attack-Caro, Tarrasch French and Italian Game with d3 and c3.

I think this might well be worth getting!

Well done to the Chessbase team.

Hi naughtynight

Chessbase have a very annoying advertisement splurge for their products. They rarely give you an idea of what's incorporated in them other than what you read advertising the product. It seems they are content to whet your appetite so you will buy it.

Like you I am interested in what Sam Collins recommends. Yes looks like the c3 Sicilian and if this is the case then he may recommend lines which are similar to his nice repertoire book of a few years ago i.e. Advance French, Panov v Caro and Scotch. No doubt someone will buy this product and illuminate us with the contents.

Interestingly if it's a repertoire the DVD must be 7 hous plus?

Anyone got any info about the lines covered by Sam Collins in the new Chessbase DVD based on 1.e4 for white?

Is it a 're-pack' of his repertoire book from a few years ago? From the screenshots on chessbase he seems to be essaying the same c3 sicilian lines.
