Sokolov Explains: Middlegame Pawn Structures (DVD)
By Grandmaster Ivan Sokolov
Video Running Time: 3 hours 45 minutes
This is the legendary Ivan Sokolov's first ever DVD. It is with great pleasure and honour that GingerGM is able to bring Ivan's vast experience of our beautiful game to video.
Ivan has been part of the world's chess elite for all of his adult life. In his youth Ivan was tipped by many as being a future world champion. His career has incuded victories over Kasparov and a large number of the world's elite.
The lessons shown in the DVD are given with his unique insight and touch of humour.
Within this DVD the viewer will learn a great deal about Middlegame Pawn structures. Ivan looks at isolated pawns, symmetrical pawns and a vast array of other structures, whilst teaching us some valuable lessons. Ivan does this by first building up the position from its bare roots and then adding material, so each aspect of the position is understood.
Simon Williams aka the Ginger GM learnt a lot from Ivan's clear yet in depth knowledge of the game and we are sure that you will feel the same after watching this DVD.
