Attacking Chess – not only an important subject but also a very important one.
Jacob Aagaard has chosen a very beautiful example for his introduction, which illustrates important factors required for a successful attack.
This is followed by 10 more files in Chess Media Format; these constitute an entertaining and instructive introduction to the art of conducting an attack.
In total there are more than three hours of top-class video training on the DVD.
The DVD is based on the new instructional Fritz8-Chess Media System. All the lectures are presented in their entirety with video pictures and synchronized chess graphics.
There is no better way to explain chess. This is how chess training can be real fun!
