An older video but principles still apply Review by thed
Rating
This is a video tape converted to a dvd, the rendition is ok but there are a few places where you get some flutter but nothing extreme. Given that it is older some of the openings that lead to the middle game discussion are not out of favor but the principles still apply.

The reason I only gave it 3 stars is while the positional discussions are clear I was looking for something that cut straight to the middle game and this video spends time discussing the opening a bit so I didn't get the pure focus on position and middle game analysis. If you want to get a full discussion of some instructive games this provides it but that wasn't what I wanted. To each his own etc. (Posted on December 21, 2016)
