How is this course going to help me?
Want to know why most players stay stuck at the same old level for years? They learn the basic chess strategy secrets: occupy the center, make threats, blunder check etc. – then they train openings and tactics. That’s it.
And while tactical training is essential, I bet learning each of the following had a big effect on your chess: what makes a bishop “good” or “bad”; how to create a knight outpost; rooks on the 7th rank…
It’s positional techniques like these that have the biggest impact on the quality of our play. But most people stop studying them… and their rating stalls too.
To be fair, it’s not their fault. There’s a complete lack of advanced positional coaching available – until now!
Here’s some of what you will learn with Grivas’ advanced chess school:
How Botvinnik setup his sensational …Rd4!! exchange sac and turned a lifeless position into a swarm of bishops and pawns in one of the must-know games!
How Bobby Fischer’s mastery of the bishop vs. knight imbalance helped him shock the world, destroying Taimanov 6-0 in their Candidates’ Match! GM Grivas explains all!
How to use the expansion principle to attack, dominate and win offside pieces. See how Nigel Short forced his Super GM opponent to resign with 30.c6! (I’ll let you work out the variations!).
Don’t make the same mistake 90% of club players make – master the secrets of positional play and chess strategy with GM Grivas’ one-of-a-kind intensive training.
Enjoy this course!
