  5. Attack Like a Super GM – GM Damian Lemos
    $29.99

    EMPIRE CHESS – VOL 77

    In this volume you will learn the secrets of how the Super GMs attack. Attacking is an important part of chess and an enjoyable part of the game for most players, but you have to know how to attack well and also when to correctly evaluate a position. Across five extensively-analyzed games, GM Lemos details each move, with the plans and ideas of each player. Many players know how to attack but lack the ability to coordinate material and create decisive threats towards a particular objective. It is important to not only know how to evaluate a position and determine whether you can attack, but also the most effective way to transfer your forces into attack. Not doing this correctly could cost the player the game. You often must first defend your position and then move onto the counterattack without losing your cool and thoughtlessly attacking; you have to control the tempo and play according to the requirements of the situation. All of this is explained in a clear and concise way by Grandmaster Damian Lemos, one of the best presenters of chess video instruction.

  6. Super GM Tactics – GM Damian Lemos
    $29.99

    EMPIRE CHESS – VOL 79

    In this volume GM Damian Lemos focuses his study on tactics by using four Super GM games as a point of reference in order to explain how a Grandmaster thinks. Tactics are an essential part of the game and can improve or resolve problems. However, it is better to study games completely where we can prepare and plan certain tactical strikes. Rather than being stuck in the game from the beginning, we have clearer ideas and key plans in the position. Tactics often complement a prepared strategy and you will also learn how to punish an opponent for ignoring certain norms of the game, such as development, gaining material in exchange for a loss in tempo and you will see the importance of initiative and prioritizing development over material. All of this is clearly and concisely explained by Grandmaster Damian Lemos, one of the best presenters of chess video instruction.
