Strategical chess is one of the most difficult concepts for an improver to understand and so on this all-new ChessBase DVD, FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin breaks the subject down, with the hope of making everything clear. Attention is given to all the components that make up chess strategy, so that at the end a player will be better able to make good moves and good plans. As usual, recent master games are the focus for the investigation and a database will be provided of all games used. All of these games have detailed notes and can be studied independently by the student at leisure.

Video running time: 3 hours 37 min.

Andrew Martin is 53 years old and is the Manger of Coaching for the English Chess Federation. He is a Senior FIDE Trainer and International Master.
