Understanding Middlegame Strategies Vol.2 - Practical Play

In this DVD, I have selected the material aiming to improve the viewer’s middlegame decision making process and broaden his/her middlegame understanding in general.

I have structured this DVD into 4 chapters: 1. What to trade, what to keep 2. The king on f8 defends himself 3. Open file 4. Creating crises Every chapter consists of model games displaying different aspects of the theme. The variety of games should give you enough insights to spot these strategies in your own practice.
