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.
If you are a beginner player who wants to improve your results, this DVD is guaranteed to help you by improving the most important phase in the game. Chess has evolved significantly in the 21st and absolute precision is required to be successful. Grandmaster Lemos focuses on 6 recent games by Super-GMs to demonstrate how the best players in the world apply basic principles in the middlegame to achieve crushing attacks or long-term advantages to win games!
