    Learn to Defend as a GM - EMPIRE CHESS
    Club Player's Manifesto
    Catalog Code: DVD0072EP

    In this DVD you will learn the art of defense, just like the GMs employ when they need to defend themselves against the attacks of their opponents. It is important to learn the basic concepts of defense in order to avoid suffering painful defeats due to not knowing how to react. Defense is sometimes a difficult task and a part of the game that many players do not like, often even avoiding positions where they have to defend themselves, despite it being the best option.

While he was preparing these lectures, he dictated them to his wife, Olga Capablanca, who typed them. As a result, we have them today. Perhaps more than any other player in the history of chess, Jose Raoul Capablanca was noted for his ability to cut through the complexities of modern chess theory and find the winning line in grandmaster tournament play.

    New Art of Defense in Chess

This book offers help when you definitely do not have the advantage. Every chess player needs a sound arsenal of defensive techniques. This book covers them all – counterplay, when to accept sacrifices, how to anticipate short- and long-term threats, and how to minimize losses. It also helps you create a strong underlying psychological framework for defensive technique – it teaches you how to stay cool under fire, how to stonewall and how to exploit your opponent's weaknesses.

    Stinking Bishops
    Catalog Code: B0087OB

    Good-humoured dialogue is the reader-friendly technique, Stinking Bishops uses to present a pair of related but puzzling practical endgames. Take bishops: 'unlike' contrast with 'like'. Add a black and a white rook, then just a single white pawn, and we have seven chessmen. The 'books' are silent on this endgame, as indeed they are on all 7-man endings. Stinking Bishops is not deterred, venturing politely to differ, voicing a minority view. It investigates both cases, in the average player's company, and at his pace, consistently eschewing acres of so-called 'analysis' -- and in the process breaks new ground in chess literature.

    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.
