Chess Tactics are the art of combat command. When tactics dominate concrete action is required immediately in order to put a plan into practice or to grab an opportunity. However, in complicated positions and with determined resistance basic tactics are often insufficient and intuition, imagination and precision are necessary. The Magic of Chess Tactics DVD helps to develop these qualities and hereto offers a multitude of highly interesting, thoroughly analysed examples as well as detailed explanations and exercises. An online reviewer noted; The presenter says there are two ways to look at the material: by player the tactical magicians or by theme. Both methods are catered for. Particular attention is paid to the games and methods of Tal, Nezhmetdinov, Spielmann, Stein, Bronstein and Shirov and the material is presented via 38 video lectures, by an animated GM Mller, who is clearly very much enjoying the subject matter. Only so much of the material could be made to fit onto the DVD and there are planty more game snippets provided in a text file (384 in all). Shirovs original foreword is included from the 2002 book (he was a good choice) and other bits and pieces from the printed version are here also, including photos of some of the payers and various text files. The viewer is advised to turn off the notation window and try and enter into the spirit of the tactical positions to develop their own vision. The DVD is .primarily aimed at aspiring players from club to master level who seriously want to improve their chess understanding. This is an inspirational DVD and a real treasure trove of tactical play. Video running time 3 hours 30 minutes. System requirement: Disc drive, Windows 7 or higher.
