  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Darian Kennedy

    Attack is the best defense? I don’t think so. Is very good to know how attacking your opponent, but also is really good to know how to defend your pieces when your opponent attacks you. That was the kind of learning I was looking for, and finally I found this DVD.

    I have been following this serie of DVDs and I can tell this is the best DVD until now. The defense is one of the best tactics you can use. Damian Lemos is the top chess teacher for me 😀

    Bought this DVD for my daughter, who is beyond my level of expertise and has been consistently beating me since middle school. She says GM Lemos is one of the best instructors around and his defensive strategies are the best.
