About This Course
The best 12 courses offered by 7 different authors that will not only improve your general understanding, but some of these courses also focus deeply on the opening, middlegame and endgame separately.
This mega package brings together the best training from our best chess authors, besides GM Igor Smirnov
Playing an opening based on understanding is great. Nowadays, we are swamped with opening lines that can go over 30 or 40 moves. Many of us are not chess professionals, so finding the time to study them is indeed challenging.
With this course, you’ll learn aggressive ideas on some of the most common openings (not sidelines) which have withstood the test of time.
Arm yourself with an intimidating repertoire based on all these aggressive openings!
Kasparov is one of the best players in the world who ever lived, or probably the best.
Of course, he is a great talent, but on this course we tried to analyze his middlegame techniques and explain with simple words to ambitious students, so anyone can copy them and improve his game.
“This course is not about Garry Kasparov’s life but about the successful techniques and ideas that he used in his games to win”
Karpov outperforms his opponents by targeting a better structure. He puts pressure on most of his opponents, sooner or later, and is unable to make some decisive errors.
In this course, we will be talking about the different techniques and the style that helped Karpov really become so great at the game of chess: What kind of openings he played; the type of structures that he liked to play and tried to strive for; the types of themes and plans that he implemented in his games, that would be reoccurring in many of his games.
Karpov’s style of play is extremely educational for virtually any chess player.
The Nimzo Indian Defense is one of the most valuable openings to learn.
You are not learning just an opening… The Nimzo teaches you true chess strategy!
But beware, because this course is not for passive players…
Both quiet and aggressive players can find here enough to learn for playing the Nimzo with doubled pawns and with both colors in any style.
Which pieces to keep and which to exchange is one of the most important questions in chess. Less experienced players often think exchanging means to swap pieces of equal value and they fail to take strategic factors into account.
Of course, you have to keep the material balance in mind but it is crucial to realize how exchanges affect the position.
This course explains how to make decisions in exchanging pieces, how to isolate the opponent’s bad pieces and how to create weaknesses.
The endgame is a very important part of a chess game, and equally valued as opening and middlegame.
Endgame books or other online materials are either difficult or boring. In this course we teach you how to understand endgames easily with practical examples.
The course begins by testing your abilities in evaluating an endgame. Then we reveal you the process of understanding and evaluating the positions.
Tactical patterns are present during the entire game. Recognizing them to spot winning ideas is your task. And this task has a machine way but, most importantly, a human way to be made!
Yes, you will need to calculate, but tactics for humans is not just that…
This course will teach you the most important tactical ideas to win games but, especially, how they work among humans. This is all about tactics techniques and the psychology of winning tactics!
Defense is a very important chess skill. At least in about 50% of a chess game, we need to defend. In some games, we play with black pieces and White makes the first move, and for that reason, White has the opportunity to start the attack/initiative.
In some other occasions, one will make a mistake and he or she is forced to defend. Thus, defense is as important as attack.
Many players struggle to get out of hard positions, and crumble under pressure. If you carefully study the course, then you will be able to defend correctly against all level of players.
Rook endgame is one of the complex phases of a chess game, even for the most experienced players. They are tricky, especially when it is easy to get on time trouble pressure at this stage of the game.
This course will help students play better in the Rook endgame.
It is very important to prepare for the Rook Endgames as they are one of the most popular endings that you will reach in your games. In this course, IM Matt Kolosowski explains how to exploit and deal with weaknesses in order to improve your play.
While attacking is great, no player is complete without having good overall skills, and this definitely includes defending.
This course is not about every single defensive idea out there, but about PRACTICAL SKILLS to defend that you can use in your games.
You may love attacking, but defending ―like it or not― is something you must do! The important thing is to learn how to defend in a professional manner and not like a patzer.
Being the defense a neglected subject by common chess trainers, we have created this course to fill that gap. We are providing you with ten weapons to professionally defend yourself in a practical game!
Normally we sacrifice material for an attack, hoping to gain it back immediately. But strong players have mastered the ability to sacrifice material for positional reasons.
By positional reasons, I mean a strong outpost, open lines, activation of the pieces, create color dominance, eliminate opponent’s actives pieces etc.
The main idea of the course is to teach you all the above-mentioned topics and familiarize you with this new chess ability, to sacrifice material.
A chess player cannot be among the best without a strong and sound opening repertoire. This course helps you get this goal.
If you want to attack from the opening instead of defending, then this course is for you. The Grunfeld Defense has always been a popular choice with players who aim to counterattack with the black pieces.
A dynamic response to 1.d4, the Grunfeld Defense is one of the most aggressive openings for Black against White’s first move 1.d4. You will have a very powerful and attacking system against White.
