You love moving the chess pieces, but always wanted to know how to really
play? Then this DVD series is just the thing for you. Sabrina Chevannes
explains the royal game to you from A to Z, from Alekhine's Defence to
zugzwang - expertly and entertaining. Make your best move ever and enter
the wonderful kingdom of chess.
This DVD follows on from the material
learnt in Volume 1 of the Chess for Novices series. The format of the DVD
is the same and has 4 chapters split into
Opening, Middlegame, Endgame
and the test section. Each chapter covers the following material:
– Basic opening traps: the most common traps that novices fall for in the
opening stages of the game. Some traps are recommended but others are
to learn how to defend against them.
Middlegame – Very thematic
checkmating ideas and patterns. These patterns help develop you attacking
ideas and launch attacks against a castled king.
Endgame – The key
basic endgames are explained here covering all the essential King and pawn
and Rook and pawn endings.
Test – The DVD again ends with a test
chapter with puzzles based on all the content learnt in the DVD. The
answers are explained with analysis.
Volume 2 helps you develop into a
player who is ready to start entering chess tournaments by introducing all
the technical ideas which are essential for your
