GM Nicholas Pert about his DVD: “After the success of my previous DVD Typical mistakes by 1600-1900 players I decided to produce a follow up DVD aimed at players of a slightly higher level. The examples all come from games played by players with a rating between 1800 and 2100. This DVD offers slightly more complex material than the previous DVD, and will hopefully provide an insight into what I believe are the main errors which stop players of this level to be more successful. I divided the material into categories such as “when to exchange pieces”, “how to convert an advantage”, “passive pieces”, “anticipating your opponents plan”, “openings and pawn structure”. Each section contains several examples which illustrate the theme and practical examples which allow the viewer to test his skills. This DVD provides a useful training tool for ambitious players and may highlight mistakes that the viewer should be aware of.”

I live in NYC and have a 10 year old son, who’s been playing competitive chess for the past few years. He’s currently rated 1940 and working hard to break into the 2000s. We recently bought the new DVD “Typical Mistakes by 1800-2000 Players”, and it’s fantastic. My son has watched quite a few chess videos, but this is by far his favorite; the other day he said, “Lots of times I’m listening and thinking ‘What if he did this move’, and then on the video he starts describing exactly what I was wondering about”. Feedback from coaches has been that he tends to underestimate his opponents’ resources, so there were numerous segments in the DVD that are proving to be especially helpful for him.
