Simon Williams

The English Opening was my first love and this was the opening that I used to progress from the rank amateur player to 2400+ International Master. I will now share my secrets of this opening with you, in the hope that the English Opening can help you improve in a similar way. My main teaching method behind this set of two PC-DVDs is to teach you some simple yet effective set ups, without the need to rely on memorising numerous complicated variations. I have explained what you are trying to achieve with each move and set up, then you will know what plans to put into motion in the middlegame and endgame.

Volume 1 covers:
1: The Reversed Sicilian - 1 c4 e5 2 Nc3 Nc6 3 Nc3 Nf6 4 d4!?
2: An early ..f5 - 1 c4 e5 2 Nc3 Nc6 3 Nf3 f5 4 d4!
3: An early ..g6 - 1 c4 e5 2 Nc3 Nc6 3 Nf3 g6 4 d4!
4: 2...Bb4 - 1 c4 e5 2 Nc3 Bb4
5: Mikenas-Carls variation - 1 c4 Nf6 2 Nc3 e6 3 e4!?
6: A unique idea against 1..e6 and ..d5 - 1 c4 e6 2 Nc3 d5 3 e3!?
7: Crazy lines from Black

Simon Williams became an International Master in 1998 and a Grandmaster in 2008. For the last 15 years he has concentrated on teaching, playing and making instructional chess DVDs. His playing style is very aggressive, preferring attacking chess to positional grinds, hence he is perfect for PC-DVDs on the King's Gambit and Amazing Moves! He is the author of numerous chess books.
