The DVD looks at the variation that arises upon 1 d4 d5 2 c4 c6 3 Nf3 Nf6 4 Nc4 a6 and is named after Vyacheslav Chebanenko, the patriarch of Moldovian chess, who was one of Bologan's trainers in Kishinev. Bologan claims that it is not easy for White to gain an advantage against the Chebanenko and suggests the DVD will give new life to this already popular opening. He notes that even he will switch to 1.e4 when he knows he is playing someone who employs the Chebanenko. On this DVD he gives a full repertoire for Black against 1.d4, which means he also covers other side systems in the Slav Defense. The contents are as follows: Introduction: 5.cxd5 cxd5 6.Bf4 Nc6 7.Bd3/Rc1, 5.cxd5 cxd5 6.Bf4 Nc6 7.e3/Rc1, 5.h3, 5.Qc2, 5.Qb3, 5.Bf4, 5.Bg5, 5.a4 e6 6.e3, 5.a4 e6 6.g3, 5.a4 e6 6.Bg5, 5.Ne5, 5.c5 Nbd7 6.h3, 5.c5 Nbd7 6.Bf4, 4.e3 a6 5.Qc2 e6 6.Nf3/c5/b3/Bd2, 4.e3 a6 5.b3, 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 Bf5 5.Bd3/Nbd2, 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Qc2 dxc4 5.Qxc4 Bf5 6.Nc3, 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Qc2 dxc4 5.Qxc4 Bf5 6.g3, 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 Bf5 5.Nc3 a6 6.Qb3/Ne5/c5/Bd3/cxd5, 5.g3. Bologan examines several options at each significant juncture summarizing the different plans at Black's disposal. For instance, in the slightly more than eighteen minute clip on 5.c5 Nbd7 6.h3, he spends the first eleven minutes examining other sixth move alternatives. In the brief introduction, Bologan notes that the Chebanenko Variation includes a variety of set ups for Black and incorporates ideas from the Slav, of course, and the Classical Queen's Gambit Declined, with set ups and plans sharing common ground with the Carlsbad and Cambridge Springs structures. He says the original idea of 4...a6 was for Black to simply make a waiting move that improves his position and see what White does next before deciding which system to play. Black's fourth move also controls the b5square, prepares ...b5, and allows Black to play the light squared bishop to f5 or g4 before playing ...e6. Bologan will often give two plans for Black from the same position and then summarize the main setups at the end of the clip. He also uses graphical elements to highlight key manoeuvres. Bologan shows the typical plans, piece manoeuvres and easy to remember tricks and ideas, along with the positional nuances of different moves in certain setups. For instance in the exchange variation 5.cxd5 cxd5, Black wants to play his lightsquared bishop to f5; if White's lightsquared bishop is already on d3, then Black plays it to g4 and then to g6; the darksquared bishop is better placed on d6 than e7; and Black will often play for the maneuvers Nc6a5c4 and Nf6d7b6. In positions with four knights on the board, Black aims for the placement on c4 and d6. Easy as pie! Video running time: 4 hours 40 minutes. System requirements: Disc drive, Windows 7 or higher.
