Chess for Scoundrels DVD PLUS Common Sense in Chess E-Book
Chess for Scoundrels on DVD
Psychology is one of the most important aspects of chess, yet most players put themselves at a serious disadvantage by ignoring this aspect of the game. Being "nice" is all very well in civilian life, but in the war zone of the chess board a more ruthless approach is required. The fact of the matter is that a good chess player must be something of a scoundrel in order to survive. On this DVD Davies discusses the various ways by which a player can conduct psychological warfare, from inducing Pavlovian responses to insulting the opposition with provocative moves. A knowledge of these methods is essential for the serious tournament competitor, if only to avoid becoming another victim. Video running time: more than 4 hours.
Nigel Davies has been a Grandmaster since 1993 and is a former British Open Quickplay and U21 Champion. With more than 30 years international tournament experience he is well versed in the various tactics that can be used.

Common Sense in Chess
by Emanuel Lasker
A ChessCentral E-Book
Lasker's Common Sense in Chess has always been one of the standard works in chess literature, enjoying a place on the "short list" of required reading for over 100 years.
