Williams, Simon
Simon Williams wurde 1998 IM und 2008 GM. In den letzten 15 Jahren hat er neben dem Spielen vor allem unterrichtet und Trainings-DVDs erstellt. Auch als Schachkommentator verfügt er über viel Erfahrung. Er kommentiert unter anderem seit Jahren beim Gibraltar-Open, dem stärksten und besten offenen Turnier der Welt. Williams hat zahlreiche Schachbücher geschrieben und sein erstes, Play the Classical Dutch, wurde von der Schachzeitschrift New in Chess zu einem der besten 10 Schachbücher aller Zeiten gewählt. Er verfügt über einen aggressiven Spielstil und mag Angriffsschach lieber als langsames Manövrieren. Das macht ihn zu einem perfekten Kandidaten für DVDs, die sich mit dem Königsgambit und Verblüffenden Zügen beschäftigen! Zu Williams’ zahlreichen Erfolgen gehören Siege über Magnus Carlsen und Boris Gelfand (kurz nach dessen Weltmeisterschaftskampf gegen Vishy Anand 2012). Auch seine Schüler feiern Erfolge: Bei den Jugendweltmeisterschaften wurde einer von ihnen Dritter, ein anderer Fünfter.

Williams, A dynamic weapon against the QGD - 5.Bf4
This DVD concentrates on the increasingly popular 5.Bf4 variation of the Queen’s Gambit Declined and gives White a dynamic and aggressive weapon against Black’s set-up. White puts his bishop on f4 to avoid the exchanges that often occur after 5.Bg5 and as early as possible wants to put pressure on Black. At the highest level the variation with 5.Bf4 has become much more popular than the more traditional 5.Bg5 line. Top players such as Alexei Shirov, Vladimir Kramnik, Levon Aronian, Wesley So and Anish Giri play it, and Vishy Anand used it in his only victory over Carlsen in the 2014 World Chess Championship. This DVD recommends dynamic lines for White against all set-ups by Black and gives you a good, aggressive, and reliable weapon against the Queen’s Gambit Declined.

Williams, King's Gambit Vol. 1 (DVD-ROM)
The DVD covers:
1: The Old Main Line – 1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Bc4 Nf6 4 Nc3 c6 5 d4 d5 6 exd5 cxd5 7 Bb3! In this system I recommend that White places his King’side knight on e2! This is quite a unique and new idea.
2: The New Main Line (Shaw’s variation) – 1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Bc4 Nc6! Here I recommend both 4 d4 Nf6! 5 Nc3 Bb4! As a solid line for White and also 4 Nf3 g5!? 5 0-0 with more aggressive play from White.
3: The Bogoljubow variation – 1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Bc4 Nf6 4 Nc3 Nc6 with ...Bb4 to follow.
4: Sokolov’s variation – 1 e4 e5 2 f4 exf4 3 Bc4 Ne7
