The Magic of Chess Tactics is the art of combat command. When tactics dominate concrete action is required immediately in order to put a plan into practice or to grab an opportunity.
However, in complicated positions and with determined resistance basic tactics are often insufficient and intuition, imagination, and precision are necessary.
The Magic of Chess Tactics DVD helps to develop these qualities and offers a multitude of highly interesting, thoroughly analyzed examples as well as detailed explanations and exercises.
Such positions especially are brought into focus which is beyond a quick solution, put concentration and calculating power to the test and sometimes even contain instructive material for quite a lot of training courses.
The Magic of Chess Tactics, which in 2002 was originally published as a book in the USA has been considerably improved and expanded over the last few years.
Now it is presented as a training DVD, for the very first time in the popular ChessBase format together with Fritztrainer Videos, where Grandmaster Karsten Müller shows a selection of attractive duels.
Besides quite a lot of corrections of the original book – some analysis even had to be turned upside down – so to speak as candy this DVD contains many additional tactical brilliants including a collection of the creative achievements of the five memorable great masters of attack: Tal, Spielmann, Neshmetdinov, Stein, and Bronstein.
The Magic of Chess Tactics is a demanding training DVD aimed primarily at aspiring chess players from club to master level who practically oriented want to study on the basis of thorough and critical explorations of fascinating middle- and endgames, now as before a reliable way to better chess understanding.
