    Chess Tactics of the Grandmasters - EMPIRE CHESS
    Beginner chess players win and lose with tactics. It is just that simple for the beginner chess player.

    Winning Chess Strategy for Beginners - EMPIRE CHESS
    Chess Strategy is the most difficult step in the road to improvement for beginners, requiring a deeper understanding of chess than simply tactics. You can think of combinations as math equations with a given, concrete result that you can prove. But strategy is more like describing the variables in this math problem and how changes will affect all aspects of the surrounding environment.

    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.
