Master of Sacrifice

Product Code: E-DVD-SMITH2


Master Method Series #25

GM Bryan Smith is back, teaching the skills that will turn you into a Master of Sacrifice!

Sacrifices are powerful ways to secure the win, but they carry a degree of risk. If you want to smash through your rivals’ resistance and win spectacular games, safe in the knowledge that your sac is sound, this is the course for you.

In 14 hours of lessons, Bryan teaches a new way to look at sacrifices that will open your eyes to exciting, creative possibilities in nearly any position.

Sacrifices on the kingside, queenside, intuitive sacrifices, positional and defensive sacs – it’s all explained clearly and in detail in this masterclass.

You will learn what makes each type of sacrifice work, how to time them and follow them up.

The result: you become a highly trained Master of Sacrifice!
