Video running time: 3 hrs 50 min.
The centre is the most important part of the battlefield. In chess we study various different kinds of centre, some special forms of which were already discussed on the DVD ‘Winning Structures’.
But in chess literature we have a huge lack of educational material on the role of the centre and on the power of pawns and pieces in the centre. And the most important part which is missing - how to change the pawn structure in the centre.
This is really the knowledge which marks out the champions, and on this DVD with the help of classical games played by Botvinnik, Fischer, Rubinstein, Steinitz, Tal amongst others the author explains all these important problems.
