Such positions especially are brought into focus which are beyond a quick solution, put concentration and calculating power to the test and sometimes even contain instructive material for quite a lot of training courses.
The Magic of Chess Tactics, which 2002 was originally published as book in the USA has been considerably improved and expanded over the last few years. Now it is presented as training DVD, for the very first time in the popular ChessBase format together with Fritztrainer Videos, where Grandmaster Karsten Muller shows a selection of attractive duels. Beside quite a lot of corrections of the original book - some analysis even had to be turned upside down - so to speak as candy this DVD contains many additional tactical brilliants including a collection of the creative achievements of the five memorable great masters of attack: Tal, Spielmann, Neshmetdinov, Stein and Bronstein. Magic of Chess Tactics is a demanding training DVD aimed primarily at aspiring chess players from club to master level who practically oriented want to study on the basis of thorough and critical explorations of fascinating middle- and endgames, now as before a reliable way to better chess understanding.
