    • Play the Middlegame Like a Grandmaster - PART 2 - EMPIRE CHESS
      The most difficult phase of the game for beginner chess players is the middlegame because it is a constant time of transition, maximum tension, and a time of combining immediate tactical needs with long-term positional ideas. Most middlegames contain nearly all of the pieces still on the board, and the friction between opponents inevitably creates conflict, requiring complete attention to avoid forcing combinations. This chess video/DVD features hours of extremely high-quality instruction by experienced chess trainer Grandmaster Damian Lemos, reviewing the basic concepts of the middlegame and how to apply them successfully in your own games.
