About This Course

Get in one package THE BEST chess courses to understand and play the opening like a Grandmaster!

The opening phase of the game is the only one that you cannot avoid. If you misplay it, there won’t be any middlegame or ending to play or you might reach these phases with bad positions.

A common but wrong assumption about the opening is that memorization is the most important idea about opening preparation. In this bundle, we’ll teach you to understand how to study openings first before giving you more lengthy lines. This will make your life easier and make you a better player overall, not only when playing the opening.

Computers have made opening preparation a very powerful and even decisive factor.

There is no guarantee that you will always win, BUT I guarantee Your Maximum Chances For A Win!

While studying the opening courses, students sent me their questions.

In reply, I prepared a detailed answer to every query and recorded some video lessons with additional rules and explanations.

For specific opening questions, I added more chess databases with specific lines, analyses and instructive games.

All these materials were united and integrated into this Bonus Pack!

This is NOT a course about an opening.

Studying pawn structures is more fruitful than memorizing opening moves!

This course teaches you deeply different ideas, maneuvering of pieces and both sides’ plans in one of the most played structures nowadays.

In addition, when you study this structure, you can see universal strategic ideas which will improve your chess understanding: Everything you learn about planning and strategic play will always make your life easier!

“How to transition from the opening stage to the middlegame stage smoothly”

One of the biggest problems many chess players face is that they often fail to realize the transition that occurs between the opening and middlegame stage, and end up playing ‘automatic’ moves during this stage.

As a result, they get punished for their moves without real purpose.

This course will guide you to achieve a smooth transition from the opening stage to the middlegame stage.
