The first of two videos on systems with 1...d6, this one based on the flexible Czech System (1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 c6).
The Czech System introduces a fascinating area of opening play, where with well-timed counter-measures Black aims to destabilize the whole White set-up. The Czech is much less susceptible to direct attack than a regular Pirc Defense.

I bought this DVD because I often face this opening as White from some of the players in my local chess club. I had previously viewed Andrew Martin's series on the King's Gambit and enjoyed those very much. Andrew Martin is a very engaging and skillful instructor.Scott Swisher
