The Grandmaster’s Secrets

9 Lessons | 1.7 Hours | Game PGNs

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 Grandmaster’s Positional Understanding

8 Lessons | 4.75 Hours | Game PGNs

With their deep positional and strategic understanding guiding them like a compass, strong chess players can tell the right plan and ideas and KNOW the RIGHT move ALL the time… without breaking a sweat!

The Grandmaster’s Openings Laboratory

5 Lessons | 1.7 Hours | Game PGNs

That’s why I decided to develop a complete chess course; Introducing our top selling chess course “The Grandmaster’s Openings Laboratory”. With pride, I can say It will give you a complete opening repertoire on the GM’s level and will make your pre-game preparation extremely effective!

The Grandmaster’s Openings Laboratory 2

6 Lessons | 4.85 Hours | Game PGNs

The opening stage lasts for 15-20 moves and on every move, both opponents can play around 10 different logical moves. Ultimately this generates many thousands (perhaps millions) of variations. Obviously, there’s no way for us to analyze and remember them all.

The Grandmaster’s Openings Laboratory Bonus pack

4 Lessons | 1.4 Hours | Game PGNs

In reply to questions about general opening rules, I’ve recorded a couple of video lessons (with additional rules and explanations).
As for specific opening questions, I’ve added more *.pgn files (chess databases) with specific lines, analyses, instructive games, etc.
All these materials were united and integrated into the Bonus Pack.

An Endgame Expert

9 Lessons | 3.25 Hours | Game PGNs

The majority of modern chess players do NOT have a real (deep) strategic understanding. They can attack and use tactics. However, even titled players are often weak in strategic positions. Computer engines can show you the move, but they cannot EXPLAIN it. That’s why players know how to play, but don’t understand it! So, how do we use our opponents’ low level of chess understanding to our advantage? You should go to the endgame!

Calculate Till Mate

8 Lessons | 5.15 Hours | Game PGNs

I’m pretty sure you have solved & waded through thousands of tactical exercises yourself and watched GMs like Anand, Shirov, Kasparov, and other heavy-weights analyze their very best and most entertaining games.

Your Winning Plan

11 Lessons | 2.4 Hours | Game PGNs

The course “Your Winning Plan” gives you an integrated system of middlegame planning. Using this unique method you will be able to find the right plan in any position.

Winning the Middlegame

9 Lessons | 2.97 Hours | Game PGNs

For students of a lower rating, I would advise starting with “The Grandmaster’s Secrets” or “The Grandmaster’s Positional Understanding” course.
You will have a much clearer understanding of middlegame play after studying this course. You will be able to apply this knowledge right away after you have finished studying this course.

How to beat stronger opponents

11 Lessons | 3.1 Hours | Game PGNs

This course assumes that you have studied the chess basics already. So it is rather for intermediate and advanced players. I’d also like to emphasize that the course is NOT only for titled players, but for everyone, except for the world champion ? as we all have stronger opponents.

Self-taught Grandmaster

8 Lessons | 2.4 Hours | Game PGNs

A chess player (or a chess teacher) is a job, and the same applies to all other professions, it requires a special system of preparation. For some strange reason, many chess players don’t understand this. They think that it is enough to buy some chess books, to read them, to have some practice, and “voila” – you are a strong chess player.

My Thinking System

6 Lessons | 1.5 Hours | Game PGNs

That’s why, in a real game, the knowledge you have may confuse you and not help you. That’s the problem all chess players face. After completing this course, you will get a clear algorithm on how exactly to play a real game, so that you can find the right move and do so continually throughout a game, getting good, stable results.

Play like Fischer

11 Lessons | 3.3 Hours | Game PGNs

This course is for beginners to intermediate students, thus, it is for you and you can understand it easily.Let’s be honest, you and no one else will never play exactly like Fischer. However, we selected the techniques used by Fischer and even if you only use 10% of them you will definitely improve your game.

7 keys to victory

9 Lessons | 3.1 Hours | Game PGNs

7 keys to victory can help you improve your game and your thinking process during the game. All the ideas are explained with simple examples to understand then if you are totally beginner.
