Sokolov is making the middlegame genre his own across his range of books and DVDs, and even through that will always lead to some crossover, he claims this DVD contains 85% of new material. This is a fine DVD and genuinely instructive, which is suitable for club players upwards. Presumably middlegame DVDs don’t prove as popular as those featuring openings, but this is one that certainly deserves attention.
