Empire Chess Volume 31

If you want to win more games, you have to attack your opponent and can not be scared to sacrifice to break through with an attack. There are an overwhelming variety of sacrifices and reasons for making sacrifices – you could give up a pawn to seize the initiative or gain space, you could sacrifice an exchange to change the dynamic of a position, or you could make a positional sacrifice by allowing doubled, isolated pawns but gaining a dangerous attack against your opponent’s king. Understanding the many types of sacrifices, and what types of positions are good to sacrifice from, is critical if you want to improve your game. In this chess DVD, Grandmasters Timur Gareev (2680 FIDE) and Ronen Har-Zvi (2515 FIDE) explain particularly impressive sacrifices by leading GMs Judit Polgar, Emil Sutovsky, Hikaru Nakamura, Dragoljub Velimirović, and Artur Yusupov.

We cannot resist the fascination of sacrifice, since a passion for sacrifices is part of a chessplayer’s nature¨ Rudolf Spielmann

4 reviews for Insane Chess Sacrifices – GM Timur Gareev

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    This DVD will provide “shock and awe” to even the most die hard chess enthusiasts. GMs Gareev and Har-Zvi analyze positions from 5 top GMs and show how they demolish their unsuspecting opponent through sacrifices that look totally impossible at first! The 2 GMs explain all the possible variations in a clear and concise manner. This DVD not provides high entertainment value but also is very instructional in that we learn how world class GMs determine whether a seemingly “improbable” sacrifice is sound or not. One of my all-time favorite DVDs.

  2. Rated 4 out of 5


    warning: for the advanced player only! crazy sacs are always fascinating and on this DVD you find a lot of them but you need a very deep understanding of positions, compensation and dynamics to try something like this in an own game. But for sure – this DVD will open your mind to new chess territories 🙂

    I never thought that do sacrifices will be a viable way to play and even to win a match. This DVD totally change the way that I think and see the chess games. Really AWESOME!

    I feel like a child, playing with his favorite toy. I didn’t know that a chess match could change so radically. This DVD blows my mind.
