Ginger GM

1. 1 Introduction

The Leningrad Dutch

with GM Roeland Pruijssers and GM Simon Williams

Leningrad Dutch, the third instalment in the Ginger GM 'Double Tuition' series, presents a fresh and up-to-date repertoire in what might be one of the most comprehensive DVDs on the Dutch to date.  Presented by GM Roeland Pruijssers and GM Simon Williams, two of the world's leading Grandmaster experts on the Dutch, all the main and critical lines are covered, filling you with confidence to play this exciting opening, and ensuring you take away a lifetime's worth of tips, tricks and secrets that Roeland has dedicated decades to prepare.

Part 1 of the two DVDs worth of material covers the Leningrad Dutch mainlines where white plays g3.  A theoretical volume, this DVD does not skimp on the essential theory, but that is what you need in order to beat the best!

The second part of Leningrad Dutch aims to prepare you against all of white's alternative set-ups, including the London System, 2nd move options, and numerous gambits.
