The Lenderman Method – GM Aleksandr Lenderman

£93.32

Description

This superb 15 hour course from Super GM Alex Lenderman (peak Elo 2636) reveals his method for playing dynamic, attacking chess. In each of the 8 chapters, GM Lenderman looks at a different type of sacrifice, from pawns in the opening all the way to Queens in the middlegame!

 

The aim of each sacrifice is to upset the balance and exchange material for activity, an attack or a long-term positional advantage, such as obtaining a key square or the bishop pair. It’s this ability to disrupt play and dictate proceedings that separate the very best players from everyone else.

 

GM Lenderman breaks down the inner workings of some of the most brilliant, creative play, lucidly explaining how and why the ideas work, giving you a rich repertoire of attacking – and, in some cases, defensive – resources.

 

Uniquely, Alex has chosen some little-known brilliancies by the strongest players on the planet – the chess computers – to illustrate ways we can take our chess understanding to the very highest level. These games supplement the finest work of human geniuses such as Kasparov, Tal and Nezhmetdinov.

 

Includes a 1 hour bonus of Alex playing online blitz, voicing his thoughts and analysis in real time plus a fascinating insight into his personal philosophy and best advice for improving players in a Q&A session!
