    The Chess for Anyone series is designed to teach the game of chess starting at the beginner level up to the advanced level. There are many videos that present chess material at the expert and master level but very few that address the all-important beginning and intermediate phases of the game where most of the chess playing population lies. It was the aim of the producers to make the learning process of this part of the game both easy to understand and fun.

    This isn't just for the new student of chess (young children make up an enormous percentage of the chess playing population) but also the recreational player who has been playing chess for a long time, and who would like to improve their game but does not have time to take lessons or read chess books. Chess for Anyone reveals secrets of the masters, and children as early as six years old will have an easy time understanding most of the material the way it is presented on all three DVDs.

    Volume #2 - Beginning Tactics: Secrets of the Masters - is the second in the award-winning Chess for Anyone DVD series and features the following chapters:

    * Introduction to Tactics
    * Double Attack
    * Superior Force
    * Tactical Logic and Ideas
    * How to Think Before Your Move
    * Analyzing a Position
    * The Pin

    This video is interactive and contains many basic, but highly instructive tactical examples that are sure to improve your game.

    "CHESS FOR ANYONE should be required viewing for any chess-in-schools program. Bruce Warner is obviously an experienced teacher and this DVD is a window into his classroom."
    Richard Roseborough, Chess Cafe

    "The CHESS FOR ANYONE DVDS were instrumental in developing our first-place team and individual scholastic state champions. It was very exciting!
    Wayne Nagy, Principal of Jefferson Davis Middle School, Florida

    • The Queen's Gambit and Friends - 2 DVDs - Chess Lecture - Volume 95
      By FM Dennis Monokroussos
      The Queen's Gambit is one of the oldest known chess openings. In early modern chess, queen pawn openings were not in fashion, and the Queen's Gambit did not become common until the 1873 tournament in Vienna. As the appreciation for positional play increased and was developed by both Steinitz and Tarrasch the Queen's Gambit grew more popular. The Queen's Gambit is still frequently played and it remains an important part of many grandmasters opening repertoires.
