This DVD looks at the Slav which is typified by the moves 1 d4 d5 2 c4 and now c6, and in the SemiSlav e6 is also played; the relationship between the two is obvious. At some points, Shirovs lecture is closely related to the history of the opening, because the Latvian has contributed to and advanced the development of many lines. In the Meran Variation, Shirovs name is linked to a line which is now known as Shabalov Anttack. After 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nf3 e6 5.e3 Nbd7 6.Qc2 Bd6 it was Shirov and Shabalov, who introduced the move 7.g4 into chess praxis in 1992. Today there are over 1000 games in the Mega Database with that variation. Shirov recounts the way this extravagant line arose and explains some of its most important ideas. Video running time: 5 hrs 20 min. System Requirements: Disc drive, Windows 7 or higher.
