    Running Time: Over 117 Minutes

    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

    • Winning Chess Strategy for Beginners - EMPIRE CHESS
      Chess Strategy is the most difficult step in the road to improvement for beginners, requiring a deeper understanding of chess than simply tactics. You can think of combinations as math equations with a given, concrete result that you can prove. But strategy is more like describing the variables in this math problem and how changes will affect all aspects of the surrounding environment.

      The first of two videos on systems with 1...d6, this one based on the flexible Czech System (1.e4 d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 c6).

      The Czech System introduces a fascinating area of opening play, where with well-timed counter-measures Black aims to destabilize the whole White set-up. The Czech is much less susceptible to direct attack than a regular Pirc Defense.

    • Smith-Morra Gambit - Shattering the Sicilian - EMPIRE CHESS
      The Smith-Morra Gambit is an extremely effective surprise weapon because many Sicilian Defense players wrongly believe the Smith-Morra to be outdated and easily refutable. While the Smith-Morra Gambit is rarely seen at the elite Grandmaster level, it remains a strong opening for white against the Sicilian Defense as black is guaranteed to face long-lasting, unpleasant pressure in every part of the board.
