    Middlegame Transition Guide - EMPIRE CHESS
    How GMs Transition from Opening to Middle Game
    Catalog Code: DVD0076EP

    This DVD presents the guide for transition to the middlegame, how GMs plan the passage from the opening to the middlegame, paying particular attention to how the choice of opening decides the plans on how to follow on to the middlegame and the endgame. During the middlegame, the player can lose the advantage they obtained in the opening if they do not know how to correctly enact their plan; just as it happens to experts in endgames. If you do not obtain an advantageous position in the middlegame, it will be very difficult to achieve victory in the endgame.

    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.
