Review: PowerPlay7: Improve Your Pieces (DVD)

The DVD begins with the presentation of sixteen test positions, for which the viewer is asked how to continue. This is followed by a twenty-seven minute introduction in which King examines the game Rustemov–Vaganian, demonstrating how subtle piece maneuvering can completely alter the game.

Many of the video segments revolve specifically around knight repositioning, particularly to the square f5 (for White) or f4 (for Black). “It’s often the case when you get a better square for the knight that things start to happen,” he says.

The entire review can be viewed for the next week at the ChessCafe main book review page and is permanently archived here.
