Very good opening against sici

Very good opening against sicilian fans, without many complications, where more important is understanding the ideas and plans to have good results. The style of teacher is very pleasant and understanding, I like when opponent has doubled pawns in sicilian or Queen can go to e1 and h4. Thank you very much for the lessons.

The DVD presentation was infor

The DVD presentation was informative for the most part, however I found Mr. Lemos' inability to prounounce the Letter 'G' very distracting. At times it became quite difficult to follow his analysis coherently, because he annoyingly kept referring to the 'G' File as the 'He' File and 'g'3 as 'He'3 and Bishop to 'g'7 as Bishop to 'He' 7 and Knight takes on 'He'4 instead of 'g'4 etc. etc. etc. you get the gist. Moreover, a popular choice of Accelerated Dragon practitioners i.e.: 1.e4 c5 2.Nc3 g6, also appears not to have been covered in either this or part 2 of the series. Other than the gripes mentioned above, I would rate this DVD as useful for Beginners and Intermediate level players searching for something interesting and sound to play against the Sicilian Defence.

I'm teacher of chess and I bought this DVD in order to improve my knowledge and for fun, but I found this DVD is also very helpful to use as example and to discuss it step by step with my students. Highly recommended!.


Overview
