The English Attack against the Najdorf and the Scheveningen is one of the most exciting and entertaining variations in modern chess. The line, developed in the 1980s by the English top players John Nunn and Nigel Short, was a mainstay of such chess legends as Garry Kasparov and Vishy Anand, and is now also a favourite of players of the younger generation such as Fabiano Caruana and Alexander Grischuk. On this instructive DVD English Grandmaster Daniel Gormally, himself an accomplished attacking player, explains the most important lines of this fascinating system. Gormally demonstrates that the English attack is not a one-dimensional opening although in many lines White is happily hacking away on the kingside. This DVD shows how White can combine strategic ideas with attacking flair to use the English attack as a deadly weapon against the Sicilian defence. Gormally believes that adding the English attack to your repertoire will straight away improve your results. It is the kind of opening that rewards hard work – you are more likely to get more interesting positions than in the anti-Sicilian lines, while playing and studying this opening will also improve your understanding of chess.
