Q. Instructional DVD's Anyone use them? Any excellent ones anyone could suggest for the intermediate player?

I'm also looking specifically at Polgar's 5 DVD set ... anyone familiar with this one?

Romans DVDs are not bad, and fairly cheap. I've got the opening repertoire for white and black.

He gets to the point and explains things quite well with enough consideration to help people with minature chess minds like me.

DVD's I have a bunch of the chess videos/dvd's from Yaz, Danny Kopec, Mednis, and Roman. The material covered in the video as compared to a book I believe is far less. It is far more entertaining though, and perhaps more profitable to watch a chess master explain moves. I wish that during the filming of the Roman DVD's, whenever he coughs (loudly), that they would have said cut and try it again. I do like Roman's the best as far as him speaking with his chessboard on a split screen. The others are either just the speaker or the board but not both. Yaz does stand in front of the felt boards or whatever and it is cumbersome to watch him move the pieces to explain a variation rather than the computer board moving the pieces. I haven't seen any of the Polgar set yet. I like to think that they are worth the money in chess improvement but I know they are worth it in the entertainment section. Hope this helps. Take care,

After seeing this thread ive decided to buy the first roman dvd its great value it seems due to its length. I have got a couple of chess books but i think the information on the dvd will sink in more due to the graphics presentations.
