These devices are used throughout the levels of chess and even top grandmaster games are won from a basic device as these. Ending – The basic checkmating technique of the most common endings that occur in novice games are instructed here. These techniques are essential to master before continuing with more complex checkmates. Test – The DVD finishes with a test chapter which consists of 20 exercises based on the information discussed throughout the DVD.

      An all-star cast shines in this heartwarming story of one family’s journey of understanding. Joe Mantegna stars as Fred Waitzkin, a sportswriter who dreams his 7-year-old son, Josh (Max Pomeranc), will grow up to play baseball. One day in the park with his mother (Joan Allen), Josh displays more than talent – he has a gift. Sensing his son is a future champion, Fred places Josh under the tutelage of a strict chess teacher (Oscar ® winner Ben Kingsley). But when Josh suddenly starts to lose, his parents must confront their own motivations, and recognize what Josh prices more than winning: his family’s love. Costarring Laura Linney and William H. Macy, Searching for Bobby Fischer is a movie “not only to enjoy but to cherish” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times).
