    The acquisition of excellent technique seems elusive to the average player, but on this new ChessBase DVD, FIDE Senior Trainer Andrew Martin shows how to take first steps in the right direction. Hard work, the study of master games and plenty of over the board practice will form the basis of a routine and if you are thinking correctly at the board, the battle is half won. The other half is actually all down to playing good moves and winning more games!

    This DVD will help you to think in the right way and thus improve your technique. Through targeted guidance and inspiration, a student may get stronger - quicker than they ever could have imagined. This is what the 'First Steps' series is all about.

Using instructive and entertaining games in which one side wins quickly, he examines all the typical mistakes chess players make in the opening and early middlegame, how you should look to exploit them, and how to avoid falling into similar traps yourself.
