Positional play and chess strategy: Susan Polgar at the most important components of positional chess, examining pawn structures, the relative value of the pieces, how to coordinate pieces most effectively and matters of chess technique.

Judith's Intermediate Chess Bundle Works! Review by marshald
Though Judith explains the chess in simple, straightforward language, the underlying chess concepts are deep and easily absorbed. I love the way each chapter ends with a wonderful (often famous) game. (Posted on April 29, 2019)

Polgar Intermediate Bundle Review by rubo
In 14 days I've listened to 14 lessons. I especially like these 4 features:
1) 25 minutes is just right for my attention span and absorption at my ripe old age.
2) Susan gives you 5 seconds to figure out the best move before continuing. She encourages to hit "pause"
3) She includes one or two of her own games.
4) Finally concluding with "Jewel of the Week",an astonishing made up composition or Endgame from actual play.
I eagerly look forward to all 106 lessons! (Posted on May 22, 2018)

I recomend this bundle very much because (read the review) Review by slovo
So far I did only 3 lessons from the intermediate bundle and in each I could find solution to some of the problems. Rest I marked for myself (they're numbered so it's easy), and would come back to them for further study. I hope to read at least once each intermediate lesson withing this cumming year (2016).
