New: Sokolov's first Fritztrainer - Understanding Middlegame Strategies Vol. 1 + 2

by ChessBase Shop - 17/09/2020

Ivan Sokolov is well-known for his stunning attacking games. Most of them originate from middlegames, so no wonder he wrote various books about this topic. We are delighted to now present his "Understanding Middlegame Strategies" Fritztrainer series, starting with Vol.1 - "Dynamic Pawns" and Vol.2 - "Practical Play". While Volume 1 concentrates on several ideas and tips for dynamic pawn play, Volume 2 is focusing on decision taking and creating crisis. GM Sokolov coached the Iranian national team (Alireza Firouzja, Parham Maghsoodloo) for many years, so he is capable of guiding you through the topics professionally and interestingly. Those Fritztrainers will take your middlegame to the next level. Photo: ChessBase

Understanding Middlegame Strategies Vol.1 - Dynamic Pawns

In this DVD we deal with different dynamic decisions involving pawns. The aim of this DVD is to arm club/tournament players with fresh ideas which they can use in their own practice. I hope my selected material will inspire the viewer to take similar decisions in his/her own games.

 

I have structured this DVD into 4 chapters:

1. Minor Sacrifices

2. Rolling Pawns

3. Allowing pawn islands

4. Dynamic ideas with g- and h-pawns

 

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.

• With interactive training including video feedback

• Further Chapter to practice typical

• Extra: Database with more examples
