Almost all the chess pieces (except for the tricky knights) have the ability to move along straight lines, whether vertically (files), horizontally (ranks) or on the diagonals. These straight lines, which connect different areas of the board and give the pieces the chance to decide the outcome of the battle, are most important in chess, and thus the title - highways. Understanding the abilities of the pieces is absolutely crucial for every player, from beginner to master. In a game of chess you are the general, and the pieces are your soldiers - the better your relationship with your soldiers - the better your results.

In his third DVD for ChessBase, GM Dejan Bojkov from Bulgaria gives you an insight into the properties of those pieces which move in straight lines, and tips of how to best exploit the open diagonals, ranks and files to get the maximum out of each piece. In 30 clips you will find out how to better understand your major pieces and exploit the open and half open files; you will learn what their fears are, and how you can help them. The DVD contains at the end a training session to better promote the understanding of the material. It is an invaluable handbook for both chess players and trainers.

Video running time: 5 hours 38 min.

Dejan Bojkov is a Bulgarian Grandmaster who famously trained Former Women's World Champion Antoaneta Stefanova. An active player, his best results include winning the Bulgarian Championship in 2009 and in 2010 winning the Gronigen Chess Festival. His previous DVDs include the Try the Sicilian Kalashnikov! and A Modern Way to Play the King`s Indian.
