Grandmaster Veselin Topalov is one of the best chess players of all time. His style is extremely aggressive and dynamic as he is able to combine excellent tactical vision with a strong positional sense and highly accurate technique. In this chess DVD, Grandmaster Damian Lemos creates a detailed study of Topalov’s style by dissecting five of his best games – demonstrating Topalov’s versatility in very different types of positions.
Viewers will gain a greater understanding of several fundamental concepts, including how to develop an initiative rapidly in the opening, the conversion of advantages (for example converting a lead in development to a dangerous attack, or converting a dynamic attack into a long-term positional advantage, etc.) GM Lemos applies his deep positional understanding and strong combinative vision to break down the critical aspects of Topalov’s style that made him so effective at the highest levels in chess.
