Nothing but good things to say

Nothing but good things to say about GM Lemos teaching style, however for a beginner like myself, I found the lessons hard to follow at times. No doubt when I acquire a deeper understanding of the game I will review this DVD and surely then I`ll be able to understand much more about these concepts.
