Polgar Chess University: The Art of Attack – Attack, defense and instructive chess games
In this XNUMX½ hour bundle, GM Susan Polgar, a former chess prodigy and now an elite coach, teaches how to play more sophisticated chess attacks – and how to defend against them. Using the most instructive chess games to illustrate the themes, Susan shows the practical decisions both sides have to make in real games, how mistakes are punished and what can be done differently to save the day.
Aimed at the player who is already familiar with basic attacks and is looking to reach XNUMX Elo level, this XNUMX lesson program will give you new ideas to use in dozens of situations. You will learn the various ways of breaking down the fianchettoed King position, how to use forcing moves to keep your opponent on the back foot as wells as some incredible mating combinations from the legendary World Champion Alexander Alekhine.
As you improve your chess and start playing stronger players, you will have to tighten up your defensive skill too and Susan Polgar provides an array of formations and counter-attacking ideas to help you in your cause. You will also be taught how to accurately judge whether an attack is likely to fail, in which case you can actually invite the attack, accept the sacrificed material and emerge with a winning position! This strategy has won many games for great defenders like Viktor Korchnoi and Tigran Petrosian.
One of the surest ways to become a stronger chess player is to study the games of the best players in history and this bundle contains hours of material on what we can learn from Bobby Fischer, Vassily Smyslov, Alexander Alekhine, Wilhelm Steinitz, Garry Kasparov and the creative Bent Larsen, not to mention Susan Polgar’s own instructive chess games.
If you wish to improve your understanding of how to gain the initiative, start an attack and force your way to victory – and prevent your opponents from doing this to you – then this is the ideal training program.
