- PART 3 Openings [13 hours 6 minutes]
NM Dan Heisman shows you in this useful 29-video series what to do after the “normal position” of an opening is reached. It is a different approach to the opening theory; how many times have you reached the limit of your opening theory knowledge to find yourself in doubt about what to do next? Dan likes calling these Tabiyas (what to do in a normal position), and how to plan ahead when the standardized position arising on the board. In this series, all the most played and famous openings are “tabiy-zed”: Ruy Lopez, Sicilian, French. King’s Indian, Slav, Caro-Kann, Nimzo, English, etc. A must-have series to improve your chess and increase your rating.
- PART 4 Endings [9 hours 29 minutes]
NM Dan Heisman tackles the classics here, including the Lucena position and Pawn endings, but in this really useful series, Dan also focuses his attention on several different subjects, such as Zugzwang, pawn promotion, technique, the all-important 7th rank, and more. And NM Heisman’s gives examples taken from amateur games, which illustrate brilliantly how the club player normally deals with endgames, and how it is possible to improve!
