    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.

    He was a child prodigy and he is surrounded by legends. In his best times he was considered to be unbeatable and by many he was reckoned to be the greatest chess talent of all time: Jose Raul Capablanca, born 1888 in Havana. At the age of 13 he became Cuban champion; in 1909 he sensationally defeated Marshall by 8:1 and was thus catapulted into the world elite. It was only after some time, since only sparse amounts of information made it across the pond, that in 1911 Capablanca achieved well-deserved recognition by leaving the elite of world chess trailing in his wake in San Sebastian. It would however take another 10 years before the Cuban defeated the reigning world champion Emanuel Lasker in their match and wore the crown himself.
