Understanding how to find and win with tactics

Qiyu Zhou about her new DVD:

"This interactive DVD is aimed at improving both tactical insight and problemsolving abilities for beginners. With 15+ chapters, each explaining a different theme, I will introduce you to not only popular themes like pins, discovered attacks, and but even give you insight into more complicated themes like the Greek Gift, exchange sacrifice. To really test your knowledge on tactics, I recommend you to pause the video at times and try to solve the position for yourself. At the end of the DVD, I have prepared numerous exercises meant for you to solve without knowing the theme. I hope you enjoy!"
