Grandmaster Damian Lemos’ excellent presentation skills will guide you through this DVD, the first in the collection of strategy and tactics for advanced players produced by OnlineChessLessons.net, the leader in educational chess DVDs.
This DVD shows us the secrets of chess strategy at the highest level through extensively-analyzed master games. Emphasizing the correct plans and ideas at every moment, it is a series for advanced players to complement their training with an aspect more difficult than tactics.
GM Lemos clearly and simply demonstrates the ideas that are developed in each game, ensuring that the player can easily learn the strategic concepts being taught. These concepts include: how to play in restricted positions or with limited space, positional plays like capturing the bishop pair, creating logical plans and how to execute them, playing on both flanks, implementing tactics with a strategic advantage, unexpected maneuvers, transferring pieces from one flank to another, making the most of your opponent’s weaknesses, the principle of two weaknesses, endgame techniques, combating your opponent’s plans, spatial advantage, positional sacrifices and more. All of these concepts can be found in this excellent work on the middlegame where we can better understand how the Super GMs play.
