Have you ever played a move just because it looked good only to discover it didn’t achieve anything?

How about playing a move that wins a piece for a pawn only to find out later you could have had that piece for nothing?

10 out of 10! Absolutely perfe

10 out of 10! Absolutely perfect chess course on attacking and defending like a super GM! Max Dlugy is one of my favourite chess presenters and he does not disappoint in these videos. His explanations are clear and lucid no matter how complex the idea, well paced, with no mumbling and his voice is calm but not monotone. The games selected are from top players like Tal, Fischer, Kasparov and his own and they perfectly illustrate his chosen ideas. The split screen features the board on the left and GM Dlugy on the right. The moves are not shown in writing but it is easy for the viewer to follow what is going on. The chapters are not presented in descriptive, just numbered, but in this particular case I don't have an issue with this because the written course summary accompanying each video is so thorough the viewer can refer to it at a glance to know the ideas and games played in each chapter. This is helpful to remember where you left off or if you want to review a certain game or topic fast. Other extras include PGN's of the games and puzzles to cement the knowledge. Not a single negative thing to say.

Volume 84: Tactical Decisions

Have you ever played a move just because it looked good only to discover it didn’t achieve anything? Or analysed a couple of variations and not really been sure which was better so picked one at random? How about playing a move that wins a piece for a pawn only to find out later you could have had that piece for nothing? Maybe you’ve looked at a position knowing that there must be a checkmating combination there but just couldn’t find it.

Don’t worry, these are all typical problems for club players… and now there is a solution!

Join World Champions Capablanca, Botvinnik, Petrosian and Karpov in making the Caro-Kann your weapon of choice against 1.e4. These chess legends knew that behind the quiet appearance of 1…c6 is a formidable system based on sound positional principles and containing hidden venom.

Success at this speed requires a special set of skills, skills GM Maxim Dlugy has mastered and used to defeat some of the world’s very best players including Kasparov, Aronian and Nakamura.
