Lorin D'Costa & Nick Murphy

The Giuoco Piano (Italian for "quiet game") is the oldest recorded chess opening, appearing as one of 12 chess openings detailed in the Gottingen manuscript - over five hundred years ago. It is popular with juniors and chess novices, as the basic ideas of this opening are simple to understand: rapid development, control of the centre, and an attack on the vulnerable f7 square. However, this reputation belies its sophisticated and fearsome nature, and it is played even today by many of the world's top players, including World Champion Vishy Anand and Magnus Carlsen.

In the first ever English "Master & Amateur" ChessBase DVD, International Master Lorin D'Costa and chess-software expert Nick Murphy take you through the main ideas of the Giuoco Piano in an easy to follow, conversational style.

In this PC-DVD they examine:
1. The Giuoco Piano "main line" 1.e4,e5; 2.Nf3,Nc6; 3.Bc4,Bc5; 4.c3,Nf6; 5.d4 - White challenges the centre straight away.
2. The Giuoco Pianissimo 1.e4,e5; 2.Nf3,Nc6; 3.Bc4,Bc5; 4.c3,Nf6; 5.d3 - with a slower build-up.
3. The Giuoco Piano ‘Evans Gambit style’ 1.e4,e5; 2.Nf3,Nc6; 3.Bc4,Bc5; 4.c3,Nf6; 5.b4 - aiming for a queenside space advantage.

The Master and Amateur series gives you the advantage of an expert's chess knowledge combined with an amateur player asking the questions that YOU want to ask.
