Improve Your Chess DVD Series - Tactics: The Opening, Middlegame & Endgame

Product Code: DVD0027OT

img

Be on your guard, and be alert! GM Edmar Mednis is your guide to the world of commonly occurring tactical traps and tactical motifs in all three phases of the game - the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. Tactical ability is a prerequisite in all phases of the game. In the opening when development is in its early stages, one slip can be instantly fatal. In the middlegame, there is a myriad of tactical devices available to the well-practiced player in order to carry out the successful prosecution of his or her initiative. In the endgame, tactical solutions require concrete and accurate calculation. The knowledge that Mednis has distilled into this chess video is indispensable for the aspiring chess student.

However if you are a passive player and prefer to build a solid position before creating threats against your opponent’s position, you will never achieve good positions in the opening because your opponent will have a free reign to seize the initiative and start attacking you
