Quotes & Reviews

The production quality is first-rate and so this all adds up to a tremendous package. I highly recommend the DVD.
IM Andrew Martin, English Chess Federation Right Move Magazine, February 2010
Williams can be described as the world’s leading authority on the subject. Not only has Williams written about the opening, he has also played it for about twenty years. Williams’s understanding of his topic shines through whenever he is on the screen. The presentation is fluid, as he unhesitatingly talks about the opening and its many nuances and variations. It is as though he is giving the viewer a one-on-one lesson on the opening.
Carsten Hansen, Chess Cafe

Description

Grandmaster Simon Williams, the world’s leading exponent of The Classical Dutch, introduces his debut DVD where the viewer explores the spectrum of exciting opportunities that Black will encounter when playing this opening. With a running time of over 6 hours, this innovative chess tutorial DVD is serious value for money. Follow Simon as he introduces the main ideas and theory behind The Classical Dutch.

The DVD design is a key factor that will ensure this product stands out from the crowd. Navigating through the DVD is made simple by easy to follow menus. Simon conducts this tutorial in a 3x camera “Green Screen” virtual TV studio that merges a montage of chess imagery onto the background. The DVD is also built around the concept of ‘Infotainment’, where the learning process is enhanced with entertaining sequences between each chapter. These excursions take the viewer into Simon’s Mad Chess World. Outside of competitions and exhibition games, these sequences also explore the likes of blindfold chess, simultaneous chess, exchange chess, drinking chess and chessboxing.

Simon’s book, “The Classical Dutch”, which is out of print now, was voted one of the best chess books of the last decade in the 100 anniversary issue of the New in Chess Yearbook. His DVD has many new ideas that build on the book and is a invaluable asset for anyone considering to play the Dutch!
