The OnlineChessLessons team began producing the Empire Chess DVD series in October of 2012. In little over 1 year, the Empire Chess series has become the most popular chess DVD series of the 21st century with 40+ DVDs featuring nearly 2 dozen Grandmasters! This extended series of chess videos presents an incredible collection of footage containing more than 125 hours of premium content from a variety of well-known players. The series is intended for chess players of all levels, as the content is extremely diverse and covers a wide range of topics from specific chess openings to general topics like positional sacrifices and develop tactical awareness.
The Grandmasters were encouraged to provide instruction on topics where they were most knowledgeable and could display their highest level of expertise. Beginner players will find exceptional value in the 10 DVD, 30 hour course presented by the brilliant Argentine Grandmaster Damian Lemos in Empire Chess Volumes 21-30. Intermediate players will find the vast majority of our Empire Chess DVD series accessible and beneficial to study (especially chess DVDs produced by GMs Daniel Naroditsky, Rafael Leitão, and Eugene Perelshteyn.) And for more advanced players, I would highly recommend the chess videos produced by Grandmasters Sam Shankland, Leonid Kritz, and Victor Mikhalevski. This 40 DVD chess course is guaranteed to improve your game via the highest-quality instruction and level of production available in today’s global market.
Empire Chess Volumes 1-10:
Although Volumes 1-10 are focused on opening systems, many of these chess videos will take you farther and deeper into the accompanying middlegame and endgame positions of these openings. Viewers will not only learn the ¨best¨ and ¨most accurate¨ move orders in the early opening, viewers will also be instructed on the reasons behind the moves in the opening. Our extensive team of Grandmaster presenters have made a point to focus on a holistic approach to learning chess. Studying openings will increase your understanding of the game and improve your rating, but the material must be presented in a comprehensive manner with respect to other phases of the game. In Volumes 1-10 of the Empire Chess DVD Series, viewers of all skill levels (Beginner, Club/Intermediate, and Advanced) can find DVDs that are relevant to their current rating. The star-studded cast of presenters includes Grandmasters Gregory Kaidanov, Sam Shankland, Leonid Kritz, Eugene Perelshteyn, Damien Lemos, and Michal Krasenkow.

The largest obstacle for beginner chess players to improve their game is simply lacking a plan.
