This course teaches you deeply different ideas, maneuvering of pieces and both sides’ plans in one of the most played structures nowadays. The Boleslavsky Structure is present in countless defense and opening variations. This is NOT a course about an opening!

Why Was This Course Created?
In chess games there are always recurring structures. Even though you play different openings or sequences of moves, there are some typical pawn structures which always will be repeated.
When we analyze a given structure, we identify the plans for each side. We also recognize the pieces maneuvers and typical ideas. This allows you to notice what the most important thing is and how to play many positions in advance.
One of these structures is Boleslavsky’s, a game position arising from countless openings and defenses. It can be seen in many variations from the Sicilian, but also in the Nimzowitsch Defense, Pirc, King’s Indian Defense, Scandinavian Defense and even in the English opening, just to mention a few.
Learning structures is a flexible method: it teaches you to think rather than to memorize!
The idea is that when you know a structure, you don’t care about the opening and, this is the big advantage!
To know about structures is a flexible learning method, which teaches you to think rather than to memorize.
