What Will I Learn?

 The correct thinking method that should be used during games, which will allow you to find the best moves in any position

 Calculate variations quickly and precisely

 Avoid the typical mistakes in chess development, which nearly all chess players make

 Stop making blunders

Every chess player wants to improve himself and make progress, however, one of the biggest problems is to understand how to do it.

The usual ways of training give very slow progress and even sometimes these are completely ineffective. Did your RESULTS become better after reading a chess book? The usual (and very sad) answer is “No”.

During my chess career as a player and as a coach, I have thought about an effective way of learning all the time. That’s why I decided to develop a chess course “The Grandmaster’s secrets”.

With pride I can say that this course will give you only the concrete skills (no more pointless knowledge!).

I have created my special system of chess education, based on the psychological principles of effective learning and extensive chess practice.

The course contains not only my experience, but also experiences from a lot of my friends: Grandmasters, trainers and other chess players, who helped me perfect the course! Many thanks to you guys! Now the course contains a lot of recommendations, which were taken only from SUCCESSFUL PRACTICE. The effectiveness of my teaching system was proven by my own practice and the results of a lot of my pupils.


THE NOTE: If you wish to reach big goals – you should train hard. I offer you the detailed instruction, which needs to be carried out to bring you the guaranteed progress. But it needs to be carried out! If you expect to receive progress by simply having familiarized with course materials – I do not advise you to buy it!

    “Igor Smirnov’s chess course: “The Grandmaster’s Secrets” offers a crystal clear approach to self-improvement on a practical level.
    He explains, in easy to understand language, the necessary way of thinking that one must use throughout the Opening, Middlegame, and Endgame to achieve high level results. Igor also explains many typical mistakes that beginners make when trying to study by themselves without a trainer.
    I highly recommend this course to anyone above 1200 ELO and truly believe that it can take you to the FM level and beyond.”
