Product Description

Description / E-DVD - Exploit Imbalances in Chess - EMPIRE CHESS

Play creative chess! Imagine you are playing an important chess match and your opponent’s pieces have pushed you back to the last 3 ranks, your pieces are doing nothing and you can’t find a way to exchange them off. It looks like all you can do is wait while he builds a strong attack.

 

Then, you have an idea. Reaching out, you sacrifice a Knight for his two center pawns. Having cleared the way, you advance your pawns, pushing back his forces. Your pieces suddenly have new squares to go to, cleared by this pawn advance, and they start to come to life.

 

Your Bishop and Knight start coordinating, creating threats to your opponent’s King position. Your Rook comes to the 7th rank and wins another pawn. Your opponent starts getting desperate and swapping pieces but each exchange brings your pawns closer to promotion. Finally, unable to stop your pawns without massive material loss, your opponent resigns, not understanding how you could turn the tables so spectacularly.

 

It is the imbalances in chess that make for really exciting games. Whether it be exchanging a knight for 2 pawns or your Queen for 3 minor pieces, you will be reaching far more positions with winning chances than players who miss these opportunities.

 

Understanding how to change the nature of the game with piece imbalances shows real chess insight and creativity and this 3 ½ hour DVD from FM Alisa Melekhina is a comprehensive course on how to do just that.
