Andrew Martin and The Basics of Winning Chess The Opening 2.a + b)

I also got around to watching another part of the "Andrew Martin and The Basics of Winning Chess" DVD. I've watched the second chapter of the opening tips. It's about coordinating the pieces and aiming for the initiative. The game used as an example in this case, is a game between Mikhail Botvinnik and Viacheslav Ragozin. In which you should pay close attention to Botvinnik's play. In particular the coordination of Botvinnik's pieces with which he aims solely for the initiative through the entire game, and brings home the win.

Andrew Martin also notes that a study of the classics is essential if you want to become a good player.
