The best target for an attack is undoubtedly the enemy king – especially if its position is weakened or still in the centre. But what should you do if your opponent has castled long to bring his king to safety? Which pieces should you use to spearhead the attack, how should you weaken his pawn shield, and what are the motifs that you simply have to know? On this DVD, IM Valeri Lilov will mould you into a player well-versed in the art of attack. You will emerge with a knowledge of the sure-fire techniques and strategies that you can use to rip open the opponent’s defences and hunt his king down! In over 20 demonstrative video lectures, Lilov explains the typical schemes of an attack, such as pawn storms, as well as plans which are tailored to the particular characteristics of a position. Another focus is on ways of setting up mate threats. This DVD combines Lilov’s animated presentation style with a selection of first-class games. Let yourself be fascinated and inspired by the attacks of the masters - so that in your next attacking game, it will be you having all the fun! Video running time: 4 hours
