Even less-experienced chess players have learnt how to develop their pieces in the opening or even know certain opening variations by heart. But when the middlegame starts, they don’t know how to judge positions and develop their play – and their chess stagnates. On this DVD, well-known Indian WGM Tania Sachdev shows you how to evaluate certain positions and then find the right concepts and plans on the basis of her own games. Sachdev explains her own thoughts and recounts how she arrived at successful decisions and, as a result, played good moves. These illustrative and instructive examples explain a lot of the basic elements of middlegame play, such as pawn structures, piece play and making the right exchanges. The games cover a broad spectrum of themes and are aimed at those looking to generally improve their middlegame play. At the end you can test your progress and understanding with an interactive quiz.

Reviews

Overall I find this DVD to be excellently made. If I did have to find a flaw in it, I would say that the selection of the games could have been better. But Tania tries to do full justice by explaining the games she has selected in great detail. The dedication of the speaker is quite apparent. She clearly didn’t want to just create the DVD and get it over with. That is why the DVD has a run time of four hours 50 minutes, which is quite astounding. Its good value for money, folks, and if your rating is below 2300 I am sure there is something in there for you to learn. While writing this review I myself learnt quite a few things and I consider my time to be well spent!
