    In this DVD GM Damian Lemos focuses his study on tactics by using four Super GM games as a point of reference in order to explain how a Grandmaster thinks. Tactics are an essential part of the game and can improve or resolve problems. However, it is better to study games completely where we can prepare and plan certain tactical strikes. Rather than being stuck in the game from the beginning, we have clearer ideas and key plans in the position.

    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.

    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."
