POWER PLAY - Checkmate Challenge - Essential Knowledge - Daniel King - VOLUME 26

Product Code: WIN0536CB

Description

Checkmate. That’s the aim of the game. There are numerous ways to checkmate the enemy king, but there are common patterns that recur over and over again, and having these at our mental fingertips is essential for when we want to finish the game.

 

From Beginner to Brain-buster

On this DVD 100 puzzles are presented, divided into 10 groups of 10 positions. Naturally, Level 1 is the easiest, and the puzzles increase in difficulty right through to Level 10. From beginner to brain-buster. You can jump in at whatever level you wish, but try to solve all ten positions on each level before you move on to the next.

 

Instant feedback

After each puzzle is presented, you have to play out the solution on the board. Daniel King will tell you whether your move is correct in a video afterwards. It might help if you set up the positions on a real chess set rather than trying to solve the positions from the screen – analysing with a real chess set is more like a real game situation.

 

Typical motifs

The checkmating motifs that you’ll encounter here are quite typical (most come from real games). Knowledge of these ideas is not only essential, but you are going to encounter some beautiful ideas.

 

So, concentrate, have fun and enjoy discovering the checkmates!
