      First Steps in Pawn Structures - Andrew Martin
      Catalog Code: WIN0436CB

      Understanding how to use pawns and how to handle different pawn structures are important topics for young or improving players to consider.

The effective use of pawns in the opening leads to the correct development of the pieces and a good game springs naturally from there. The pawn structure must be considered throughout the game and this is something that Martin also touches upon. The viewer will be treated to a tour of excellent games, both old and new, many from the period 2012-2014, which highlight key ideas about the correct use of pawns and from which one cannot fail to improve one’s technique. Thus this DVD is ideal for players below 1800 or indeed ambitious players of any level.

      Catalog Code: WIN0417CB

      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! In the endgame, and often even right after the exchange of queens, most of the standard combinations known from the middlegame no longer work. 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.

      Improve Your Chess Tactics with Tania Sachdev
      Catalog Code: WIN0435CB

      My first chess DVD focused on various strategic middlegame themes and concepts, but in this second installment, the focus is on tactics – for after all, strategy and tactics go hand in hand, and playing strategically often leads to a resounding combinative finish. But for that to happen, you have to be able to build up positions through which tactics can flow – and this is exactly what I have illustrated on the DVD with a number of examples. 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!“
