    If you are looking to improve your chess, tactical training is a sure-fire path to success. However, there are tactics…and then there are tactics!

On this DVD, Valeri Lilov deals with realizing tactical opportunities in such quiet positions as well as the concepts that you need to know in order to discover these at the board. What’s more, he also shows you tricks and techniques that you can use to punish the most common endgame mistakes. Take a fascinating journey through a world of wonderful combinations and deep ideas with IM Lilov.

The aim of this course is to help you understand how you to make tactical opportunities arise as w ell as to sharpen your tactical vision - these selected lectures will help to foster your overall tactical understanding. You can never spend too little time solving combinations and studies to improve your calculating abilities!“

    This workbook offers a unique framework to study chess tactics independent of themes, difficulty and—most importantly—even the existence of an actual tactic in a given position. Analyzing carefully selected games, from beginner level through to club and tournament level, the reader assumes the role of a tactics detective, checking for mistakes and missed opportunities by both sides without the help of a chess engine. This training method resembles live play far more realistically than solving puzzles, because each move has to be analyzed with respect to tactical possibilities—whether they exist or not.
