Attack Like a Super GM – GM Damian Lemos
In this DVD you will learn the secrets of how the Super GMs attack. Attacking is an important part of chess and an enjoyable part of the game for most players, but you have to know how to attack well and also when to correctly evaluate a position. Across five extensively-analyzed games, GM Lemos details each move, with the plans and ideas of each player.
Many players know how to attack but lack the ability to coordinate material and create decisive threats towards a particular objective. It is important to not only know how to evaluate a position and determine whether you can attack but also the most effective way to transfer your forces into an attack.
Aggressive Chess Domination I – GM Damian Lemos
Aggressive chess wins games. Players like Garry Kasparov and Mikhail Tal were renowned for winning with attacks so powerful that their opponents would be shell-shocked when they finally knocked over their King.
The aggression doesn’t begin with the attack on the King, however. This style of chess is about playing moves that force your opponent on to the back foot right from the opening, demanding their utmost concentration not to get blown off the board.
As you keep pushing them back their pieces become passive, you begin an attack and they just about counter your threats until you pick up a piece and exchange it for a pawn in front of their King. Check. And it slowly sinks in that your sacrifice forces a mate in 3.
Aggressive chess produces some of the most memorable games in history and you can play this way too, creating your own brilliancies on the board. GM Damian Lemos presents “Aggressive Chess Domination”, a detailed analysis of awesome attacking GM games that will elevate your understanding of forcing moves and winning with the initiative to a whole new level.
Aggressive Chess Domination II – GM Damian Lemos
Playing aggressive chess is the key to overpowering your opponents, winning more games and tournaments and doing it in style. Legendary champions like Bobby Fischer and Garry Kasparov played with such power that people were actually afraid to sit down at the board opposite them.
Too many players, however, are one-dimensional in their approach – their threats are easy to defend and their plans are easy to predict. If you find that your opponents equalize without too much trouble – even if only in a few of your games – then it’s time to upgrade your chess.
In “Aggressive Chess Domination II”, GM Damian Lemos analyzes 4 awesome wins to reveal GM secrets that will make every move you play vastly more powerful and difficult for your opponent to face.
Counterattack Like a Super GM – GM Damian Lemos
In this DVD GM Damian Lemos presents a series of Super GM games that have the running theme of both attacking and counterattacking play.
Attacking is an important part of chess, but you need to know how to attack well and also when to evaluate a position correctly. Counterattacking, a powerful weapon in our repertoire is one of the important facets of the game that we see in these videos.
Often we need to defend and wait for our chance to counterattack; this tends to be very effective as our opponent goes from attacking to having to defend themselves which they don’t like to do. Counterattacking is often more effective against an opponent’s poor defense when they are unable to adapt to the new situation.
In this series of 4 extensively-scrutinized games, GM Lemos analyzes each move and the plans and ideas of each player. It is important not just to know how to evaluate a position and see whether you can attack, you also have to know when is the best moment to counterattack. This is taught clearly and concisely by Grandmaster Damian Lemos, one of the best presenters of chess videos and DVDs, and brought to you exclusively by OnlineChessLessons.net.
Attacking Play – Attacking Secrets from a World Renowned Chess Coach
Attacking the enemy King is most player’s favorite part of the game. But as we face stronger opponents, more precision is needed if we wish to break through and deliver checkmate.
In Attacking Play, GM Susan Polgar shows how to build strong attacks based on where our opponent’s King is. If the King is in the center, we want to keep him there while opening lines as quickly as possible.
If he is on the opposite side of the board to our King, a pawn attack will be dangerous. On the same side, we need to bring our pieces to bear down on his position.
GM Susan Polgar analyzes model games for each type of position, highlighting typical sacrifices and ways to make things difficult for the opponent.
This will help develop your attacking intuition, knowing when sacrifices will pay dividends and when we should proceed more slowly.
Attacking Play will teach you when to start an attack, how to get at the King and how to make defending as difficult as possible for your opponent. Get the best possible chess training here!
