21 ( +1 | -1 ) chess videosAnyone have a good recommendation for an instructional chess video for someone around 1700-1800--openings or otherwise? Something that won't let me fall asleep in front of the tv (which is what i usually do).

Fre's lectures are on a wide varietry of chess subjects,and are geared to the amateur player. Contact him for a full list of what tapes he has on stock at the moment.
55 ( +1 | -1 ) When I was in New York I saw a videotape of Fred Wilson's lecture on the Petroff Defense. It was informative (and the video quality passable), but at (I believe) $19, maybe not as good a deal as buying a book on the subjects he lectures on. However, if you've got the money and find reading chess books tiring, they're not bad. The Seirawan chess videos are also good, but the ones I saw were rather elementary (basic tactics, strategies...). I don't know if there are more advanced ones available.
If you are in the New York area, Wilson's bookshop and lectures should be checked out.
