    Typical Mistakes by 1600-1900 Players - Nicholas Pert
    Catalog Code: WIN0459CB

    As the National Head Coach for the English Chess Federation I train many improving players, and see some typical mistakes that repeat themselves. In this DVD I have taken a large collection of games played by players, predominantly in the rating range 1600-1900, and I have looked for typical mistakes. Each theme has several examples to demonstrate typical mistakes, and there are various test throughout the DVD so that the viewer can try and find the best move in certain positions. This should be a great tool for players to use in order to improve their middlegame and endgame play. It will hopefully also highlight any areas that you need to work on in order to improve quickly. Enjoy the DVD!

    1001 Real Chess Tactics From Real Chess Games

    SHOPWORN - The Chess Tactics Detection Workbook
    Catalog Code: SWB0401EM

    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.

    Big Book of Chess Combinations
    A Chessworks Publication
    Catalog Code: B0301IS

    This book provides one thousand combinations from chess tournament play. It is not the typical book with positions and their solutions. Rather, it tests the actual players against the computer. Sometimes the computer finds the correct solution but not always. The reader needs to study the positions and determine for himself whether the move selected by the computer is correct or not.

    Typical Mistakes by 1800-2000 Players - Nicholas Pert
    Catalog Code: WIN0477CB

    GM Nicholas Pert about his DVD: “After the success of my previous DVD Typical mistakes by 1600-1900 players I decided to produce a follow up DVD aimed at players of a slightly higher level. The examples all come from games played by players with a rating between 1800 and 2100. This DVD offers slightly more complex material than the previous DVD, and will hopefully provide an insight into what I believe are the main errors which stop players of this level to be more successful."

    Formation Attacks

    As a Chess Master who has spent many years playing aggressive and attacking chess, I was quite dismayed during a recent visit to my local bookstore.

The books on attacking fell short in many ways. Many of the books were simply a small collection of attack games with no instruction about the art of attacking or about the skills required to become a great attacker.
