Andrew Martin: First steps in Defence
This new series „First Steps…” is aimed at chess players below 2000 ELO points.. The idea of the series is to provide a basic grounding in a variety of subjects, which will assist general all-round improvement. In ‘First Steps in Defence’, Andrew Martin treats the viewer to a selection of classic games and lays out a foundation course in the art of defending. Key thinking points reinforce the analysis and the games. The author shows that defence can be fun, and he gives a lot of precious tips. Tricks which help in defence such as perpetual check or the exchanging of pieces play a decisive role, and examples which involve somewhat passive but solid positions are presented. The DVD is designed to be as easy to understand as possible. Video running time: 3 hours 16 min.

Great DVD. Simply put Martin is approachable and amicable. He spends almost as much time on counterplay and tactics as he does on the mental fortitude needed to defend. Bottom line, very enjoyable!
