Interestingly - well, I think it's interesting - Shirov says on his Rossolimo DVD that ChessBase asked him to cover the Moscow but he refused because he reckons it's dead equal (or words to that effect).
Is Rublevsky's English any good?


I think Rublevsky already gave it up for the same reason.  Wink

There is nothing about 2... d6 3.Bb5+ Bd7 or Nd7. Maybe that is reserved for another DVD!?


Well, those aren't part of the Rossolimo.

See the content above. 2... d6 3.Bb5+ Nc6 is covered via 2... Nc6 3.Bb5 d6.

There is nothing about 2... d6 3.Bb5+ Bd7 or Nd7. Maybe that is reserved for another DVD!?

Looks good. Haven't gone through all videos yet but it's surely 7-8 stars out of 10 for 1700-2300 players.
I have played the Rossolimo for 25 years now but concentrated mainly on 4.0-0 lines. I think that this DVD with its outlined repertoire can really help me (~2200) to get a better grip on the modern 4.Bxc6 approach!
Presentation like in the Caro-Kann DVD, a little bit dry.
Im not sure about 3...g6 4.Bxc6 dxc6: Bologan says that theres no real difference between 5.d3/h3 Bg7 6.h3/d3 and starts all his games with 5.h3, but (if I remember well) Shirov insisted on 5.d3! (Bg7 6.h3) as much more precise.

He has new clothes since the CK and KID DVDs. I must say that the Philidor outfit outclasses this one.


Agree. Those who like the old style can still look at the cover though... Wink

The second screenshot in the Chessbase ad shows 3.Bb5+ after 2...d6. Not sure how much is covered (screenshot position looks to be in a sub-note), or if he covers something vs 2...e6.

I agree, Bologan does an excellent job on his CD's (I have the King's Indian one). Hopefully he continues to do more.

Bologan is getting rather prolific. I like his style though. Much more serious than other CB DVD presenters.

I've played the Rossolimo quite a bit in blitz, but haven't used the Bxc6 variations much. I wonder if he plans anti 2...d6 and 2...e6 DVDs.

He has new clothes since the CK and KID DVDs. I must say that the Philidor outfit outclasses this one.
