The flank attack is one of those sneaky ways of surrounding your opponent's forces and getting to your target fast! So, do we really need to master flank attacks to use them or protect ourselves rom them effectively? The answer is a resounding "Yes!"
In this DVD, FM Valeri Lilov dwells on the importance of understanding flank attacks by presenting a number of concepts and typical scenarios with which a master of the flank attack should be familiar.
The role of the centre during a flank attack and the typical patterns you should recognise before correctly initiating a flank attack are some of the themes the author explains and illustrates with good examples taken from the best games of renowned chess masters such as Alekhine and Capablanca.
On the other hand, the FIDE master also teaches how to thwart your opponent's flank attacks in different positions and the golden rule to know when you are on the defensive. This DVD gives the answers to all these questions and more!
