Empire Chess Volume 30

 

In this chess DVD, GM Damian Lemos stresses the importance of paying attention to the underlying balance of the position and to remain alert to the changing dynamics of any position and be ready to adapt and change to a more solid, defensive posture.

 

Learn when it’s time to switch into Defense Mode

 

Many beginner players are unable to defend well because all of their focus is on memorizing openings and playing into attacking patterns they have studied. However, if things don’t go according to their plans, they can be caught off guard and be forced to defend. The art of defense can be extremely difficult to learn, especially for beginner players because it is very hard to know when it is appropriate to stop attacking and start defending. There is always a balance of power in chess, and sometimes your position is not strong enough for you attack.

 

How to Defend Tough Positions

 

If you are a beginner chess player and you aren’t able to defend tough positions, you are going to be giving away points for free because you will not be saving hard games. GM Lemos points out that to succeed at any level in chess, you must be versatile and able to defend tough positions! Giving away free points just because you haven’t dedicated time to studying defense is definitely not going to help your rating out! If you are a beginner chess player looking to improve your game, this chess DVD is guaranteed to help your results skyrocket by not only saving draws in tough positions, but fighting back to win games that you would have quickly lost before!
