  2. The Hedgehog is not just an opening, it is a system. A system that can be used against 1 c4, against 1 e4 and also 1 d4. Some players, such as the Swedish Grandmaster Ulf Andersson, appear to play very little else with the black pieces. Black’s pieces curl up behind a row of pawns on the third rank and invite White to attack – at which point they spring out from behind the barricades to give the aggressor a nasty shock. The Hedgehog can easily transform into a tiger...

    In this DVD, Grandmaster Daniel King not only gives you specific theoretical advice on the main Hedgehog lines, but he also looks at general strategy for both sides. Whether you play with White or Black, this DVD will help your game.

  5. In this 9th Power Play DVD Grandmaster Daniel King discusses the theme of Major Pieces v. Minor Pieces. In other words, positions with the material balance of queen against rook and minor piece, queen against two rooks, and rook against minor pieces, including exchange sacrifices.

    Sometimes a queen or rook is like an all-powerful giant, striding across the chessboard. So how can you best defend yourself against a queen? Or if you are battling with a bishop against a rook, what should your strategy be? Among other things, Daniel King considers Topalov’s dynamic exchange sacrifices.

    These material imbalances are incredibly common – be prepared and take control.
