  1. Studies in: Bishops - Chess Lecture - Volume 169 - 2 DVDs

    Studies in: Bishops - Chess Lecture - Volume 169 - 2 DVDs

    $49.95
    More experienced players understand the power of the bishop. Bishops usually gain in relative strength towards the endgame as pieces are captured and more lines become available on the board. A bishop can easily influence both wings of the board simultaneously. In an open endgame, a pair of bishops is decidedly superior to either a bishop and a knight, or two knights. A player possessing a pair of bishops has a strategic weapon in the form of a long-term threat to trade down to an advantageous endgame. Learn More

  3. Doubled Pawns

    Doubled Pawns

    $24.95
    There isn’t a chessplayer who hasn’t struggled with doubled pawns. Are they strong because they oversee and surveil important squares or reinforce defensive ramparts? Are they weak, prone to being collected by our opponent in the endgame – or sooner? In the first work devoted exclusively to this topic, the author examines the various pawn structures in which doubled pawns appear. Learn More
  4. The Chess Player's Mating Guide - Weakened Kingside - Robert Ris - Vol. 2

Several well-known themes, pawn formations and other attacking weapons are covered in 8 chapters with the goal to challenge the viewer determining and exploiting the weaknesses. IM Robert Ris has made an interesting selection of famous games as well as games from his own practice to demonstrate the typical ideas exploiting the weaknesses in the pawn formation in front of the castled king. The selected material is a good warm-up for the exercises which are presented at the end to test your knowledge on this topic. By then you at least will have the confidence to claim you have become a dangerous attacking player as Tal, Alekhine, Fischer or any of your other favorites. Watch, learn & enjoy! Learn More

  7. The Center

    The Center

    $29.95
    There is a blank spot in the huge world of chess literature: systematically presented middle- game. Therefore authors, both long-term chess trainers, decided to fi ll this vacuum. With a series of books about the middle-game, we would like to present different topics of chess tactics and strategy in a slightly different way. Books, which will be published in the coming years as part of the series, are planned to cover all frequently discussed themes, as well as many others topics — those about which chess players and also trainers usually do not think as deeply as they should in order to achieve better results.

    Which pieces to keep and which to exchange is one of the most important questions in chess. This is true in the opening, the middlegame and the endgame.

    Black is Back!

    $33.95
    GM Nicholas Pert about his DVD: “After the success of my previous DVD Typical mistakes by 1600-1900 players I decided to produce a follow up DVD aimed at players of a slightly higher level. The examples all come from games played by players with a rating between 1800 and 2100.

    Powerful Positional Play - EMPIRE CHESS

    $34.95
    Are you serious about becoming a strong, perhaps even titled, player? Positional chess understanding is what separates the great from the good. Imagine you’re in the last round of a major international tournament, half a point behind your opponent. A victory will guarantee 1st place and a $20,000 prize. As you play, everything on the board is clear to you. You play moves restricting your opponent until he can only shuffle his pieces back and forth whilst yours grow ever more powerful. When every piece is ideally placed, you smash open the position, your opponent defenceless. A short while later, he offers his hand in resignation and you know you’ve done it! Learn More
  25. Positional Mastery - EMPIRE CHESS

    Positional Mastery - EMPIRE CHESS

Incredibly frustrating! To beat these guys you need to master the art of positional chess and that is exactly what GM Damian Lemos helps you achieve in “Positional Mastery”. By studying the textbook examples in this Course you will learn how to constantly ask questions of your opponent, forcing them to solve subtle problems until they make a mistake and you win.
