LEMOSBEF-300x199I’ve spent nearly 6 months carefully putting together this comprehensive beginner chess course that carefully teaches you how to reach the 1500-1600 FIDE level as quickly and easily as possible. As many of you know I reached the GM Level without much coaching and without much help of computers. You don’t need to memorize tons of complex openings or purchase any expensive software. The truth is until you reach 2000 FIDE you don’t even need a chess engine! What every beginner needs and what every comprehensive beginner chess course should contain is a solid understanding that covers all essential elements of the chess game and bring them together in a cohesive theme that you can use in your games. I’ve noticed too many comprehensive beginner courses overcomplicated things for the early club level player who is hoping to reach a higher strength.

“I spent the last 6 months carefully working on this 27 hour masterpiece course to give the beginner the best DVD learning experience I could possibly offer. I promise you won’t be disappointed.” – GM Damian Lemos

The Secret to Mastering Chess Openings – Empire Chess Vol 21

The opening is the most important phase of the game in chess because you have to come out swinging, desperately attempting to punish the slightest inaccuracy by your opponent. At any level in chess, from beginner to World Champion, the player who is able to achieve rapid pressure in the opening is going to have better chances of maintaining a long-term advantage. In this chess video/DVD Grandmaster Damian Lemos demonstrates how the beginner player should perceive the opening and plan a successful approach by aiming for strong control of the center, rapid development and early threats! This DVD is targeted at beginner chess players, guaranteed to vastly improve your understanding of the opening and how to start winning games from the very first moves!

Mastering Control of the Center – Empire Chess Vol 22

If you are a beginner chess player that is struggling to progress in your game, controlling the center might be your problem. This basic principle is frequently overlooked as beginner chess players find it easy to become caught in a trap of not knowing what to study, and in what order to study it in! Simply relying on the basic rules of successful opening play will greatly improve your tournament results. Don’t overcomplicate your game! Control the center, develop your pieces actively, create threats and you will be winning games. Controlling the center is such an important fundamental concept in chess because it can represent an immediate, tactical advantage or it can be a long-term, positional advantage. You can use control of the center to limit and push back the pieces of your opponent, or you can use this central control to establish strong outposts for your own pieces. In this chess DVD, Grandmaster Damian Lemos focuses on the basic concepts and common themes of successful central control for beginner chess players.

Chess Tactics of the Grandmasters – Empire Chess Vol 23

Beginner chess players win and lose with tactics. It is just that simple for the beginner chess player. If you are not constantly looking for tactical opportunities to win material, gain space, or to seize the initiative, you are not playing good chess. The best chess players win by forcing moves, which are moves that threaten tactics and make your opponent react. This chess DVD will teach you the basics of tactics and how to start winning more games immediately. Intended for the beginner and intermediate audience, GM Damian Lemos produced ¨Chess Tactics of the Grandmasters¨ to explain to less experienced players that you must constantly be attentive to the tactical demands of any position. This comprehensive chess DVD will teach you how to apply this fundamental principle in your games to stun your opponents and never leave yourself undefended!

Winning Chess Strategy for Beginners – Empire Chess Vol 24

Chess Strategy is the most difficult step in the road to improvement for beginners, requiring a deeper understanding of chess than simply tactics. You can think of combinations as math equations with a given, concrete result that you can prove. But strategy is more like describing the variables in this math problem and how changes will affect all aspects of the surrounding environment. In this comprehensive chess video/DVD, Grandmaster Damian Lemos explains how beginner chess players can develop a strong foundation in strategy and use this deeper understanding to create powerful long-term strategies that will crush opponents and instantly improve your results.

Play the Middlegame like a Grandmaster, Part 1 – Empire Chess Vol 25

¨Play the Middlegame like a Grandmaster – Part 1¨ features hours of action-packed chess instruction, presented by Grandmaster Damian Lemos who explains the art of the middlegame and focuses on how you can start winning more games now! The middlegame is one of the hardest phases in the game for beginner players because there are no strict rules to guide your play (unlike the opening) and there are still most pieces on the board to consider. If you are a beginner chess player looking to improve your tournament results IMMEDIATELY, this chess DVD is GUARANTEED TO HELP YOU PLAY BETTER!

Play the Middlegame like a Grandmaster, Part 2 – Empire Chess Vol 26

The most difficult phase of the game for beginner chess players is the middlegame because it is a constant time of transition, maximum tension, and a time of combining immediate tactical needs with long-term positional ideas. Most middlegames contain nearly all of the pieces still on the board, and the friction between opponents inevitably creates conflict, requiring complete attention to avoid forcing combinations. This chess video/DVD features hours of extremely high-quality instruction by experienced chess trainer Grandmaster Damian Lemos, reviewing the basic concepts of the middlegame and how to apply them successfully in your own games.

Play Aggressive Chess like a Grandmaster – Empire Chess Vol 27

“Play Aggressive Chess like a Grandmaster” features hours of elite chess instruction by Grandmaster Damian Lemos, reviewing recent games by Super-GMs to demonstrate how the best chess players in the world today are using aggressive chess to win important games. It is fascinating how GM Lemos describes basic principles that beginner players can use in their games, and then goes on to show how players like Garry Kasparov, Magnus Carlsen, and Veselin Topalov have repeatedly used these exact same concepts in their own games at the highest levels. This chess DVD is guaranteed to improve your game because you will start making the most out of every opportunity to create threats, place pressure on your opponent, and create problems that your opponent will be forced to solve.

Play Positional Chess like A Grandmaster – Empire Chess Vol 28

After watching this chess, beginner players will feel much more comfortable in the middlgame as you will truly understand how to apply different concepts in different positions. This method that is presented by GM Lemos is exponentially more effective than simple memorization of common rules. If you are a beginner chess player that is trying to improve your tournament results but currently lack the deeper understanding of positional chess that is required to succeed at higher levels, this chess DVD is guaranteed to push you towards more profound plans and better results immediately!

How to Attack like a Grandmaster – Empire Chess Vol 29

The secret to winning chess games is very simple – YOU MUST ATTACK! If you like to open passively and slowly build a strong defensive position, you are playing bad chess! To win games in chess, you must be attacking. You can’t wait your opponent to make a mistake because that is not going to win you any games! The best players in the world try to create at least one threat with every single move; why can’t beginner chess players do the exact same thing? This simple principle of consistently striving to attack your opponent is guaranteed to help you play better and improve your practical tournament results. Constantly creating problems and forcing your opponent to solve them is the mark of a good chess player, regardless of your level.

How Grandmasters Defend Tough Positions – Empire Chess Vol 30

If you are a beginner chess player and you aren’t able to defend tough positions, you are going to be giving away points for free because you will not be saving hard games. GM Lemos points out that to succeed at any level in chess, you must be versatile and able to defend tough positions! Giving away free points just because you haven’t dedicated time to studying defense is definitely not going to help your rating out! If you are a beginner chess player looking to improve your game, this chess DVD is guaranteed to help your results skyrocket by not only saving draws in tough positions, but fighting back to win games that you would have quickly lost before!

    (verified owner):

    I bought this series for my kids. My son is 7 years old and he really likes Damian Lemos. We have him watch the video with a physical tournament size chessboard and chess pieces in front of him, and while Damian goes through the game on the computer, my son moves the pieces on the board at the same time. Damian goes through the videos at a perfect, consistent, moderate, pace and he explains every single move; thus, my son has time to move the pieces while watching, and my son understands the ideas/thought processes behind every single move. I note that many other chess teachers are OK to watch without a chessboard, but with a chessboard it’s difficult, because they often go too fast and it’s not possible to move the pieces on the physical board fast enough to keep up; moreover, they often assume the viewer sees moves they do, so they don’t explain moves or variations. You will not have these issues with Damian. My daughter is 9 and she just started Lemos’s beginner’s series and today she said “Damian Lemos makes studying chess enjoyable”, and at 9:30PM my daughter on her own initiative got out her chess board and did a Damian Lemos video. To summarize: My kids enjoy watching Damian because of his moderate pace, his explanations/ideas about every single move, and because they actually learn from Damian, while other videos my kids would just go through the motions without understanding.

I like the way the course is structured and the clear voice of the instructor as well as the pace. I will study this course for the second time.
