The Chess Player´s Mating Guide Vol. 1

DVD-box, ChessBase, 1. edition 2016

From the series »The Chess Player´s Mating Guide«

Incl. 19% Tax, excl. Shipping Cost

Bereits Anfänger lernen, dass man den König schnell durch die kurze oder lange Rochade in Sicherheit bringen soll, nachdem man seine Leichtfiguren entwickelt hat. Ignoriert man diese Faustregel, kommt nicht nur der König schnell in Schwierigkeiten, sondern auch die anderen Figuren und vor allem die Türme können ihre volle Kraft nicht nutzen. Sogar auf höchstem Niveau wurde schon oft unterschätzt, welche Folgen es haben kann, wenn man diese Grundregel des Eröffnungsspiels missachtet. In der ersten Folge der neuen "Mating Guide“ Serie wird gezeigt, wie man es ausnutzt, wenn der gegnerische König exponiert im Zentrum steht. In zehn Kapiteln und mit Hilfe von 20 Beispielpartien zeigt der Autor anhand von Schlüsselmotiven wie Entwicklungsvorsprung, Verhinderung der gegnerischen Rochade, offener e-Linie sowie zahlreicher Opfermotive alles, was man wissen muss, um dieses Thema zu beherrschen. Anfänger und Meisterspieler können von dieser DVD profitieren, denn sie bietet detaillierte Analysen von einfachen Beispielen (auch aus der Praxis des Autors) und klassischen Angriffspartien von Spitzengroßmeistern. Am Ende folgen zehn Aufgaben, die Sie auffordern, Ihr Wissen zu testen. Definitiv ein Muss für aufstrebende Spieler, die ihr Schach verbessern oder schönes Angriffsschach genießen wollen!

One of the first lessons you learn in chess is to bring your king into safety by castling - be it on the kingside or the queenside - after having developed your minor pieces. By ignoring this rule of thumb, not only may your king end up in trouble, but your other pieces and in particular, your rooks, may never end up playing much of a role, and before you know it, things are looking grim. Even at the highest level, the consequences of neglecting this basic element of opening theory has been frequently underestimated. In this first volume of the new Mating Guide series, the emphasis will be on how to exploit a vulnerably placed king in the centre. With 10 chapters, 20 illustrative games and key themes including a lead in development, preventing castling, the open e-file and different kinds of sacrifices, this DVD will show you everything you need to know to master mid-board showdowns. The level of the content means it is relevant to both beginners as well as master level players - as both elementary examples (also from my own practice) as well as classical attacking games by elite grandmasters are analysed in detail. After thoroughly studying the training material, you will be challenged to test your knowledge by solving the 10 training exercises. A must-have for ambitious chess players who want to improve their own attacking skills or enjoy the beauty of attacking play!
