Chess Gambits Explained: The Aleksandr Lenderman Method
This superb 15-hour course from Super GM Aleksandr Lenderman (peak Elo 2636) reveals his method for playing dynamic chess gambits and attacking chess.
In each of the 8 chapters, GM Lenderman looks at a different type of sacrifices and chess opening gambits, from pawns in the opening all the way to Queens in the middlegame!
The aim of each sacrifice is to upset the balance and exchange material for activity, an attack or a long-term positional advantage, such as obtaining a key square or the bishop pair.
It’s actually this ability to disrupt the play and dictate proceedings that separate the very best players from everyone else.
GM Alex Lenderman breaks down the inner workings of some of the most brilliant, creative play, lucidly explaining how and why the ideas work, giving you a rich repertoire of attacking chess, and in some cases, defensive resources.
Uniquely, GM Aleksandr Lenderman has chosen some little-known brilliancies by the strongest players on the planet – the chess computers – to illustrate ways we can take our chess understanding to the very highest level. These games supplement the finest work of human geniuses such as Kasparov, Tal, and Nezhmetdinov.
Includes a 1-hour bonus of Alex playing online blitz, voicing his thoughts and analysis in real time plus a fascinating insight into his personal philosophy and best advice for improving players in a Q&A session!

VECO – Vol#9 Beat the Slav Defense
Alex has created a repertoire based around the Exchange variation (1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.cxd5 cxd5) – a repertoire that gives White a powerful initiative based on rapid development and hitting that d5 pawn.
Play 1.d4 and you have a new way of dictating the game. Play the Slav as Black and, well, you need to know how to avoid the many pitfalls.
Grandmaster Decision Making with GM Alex Lenderman
How many times have you found yourself in a situation when you think your opponent has made a mistake?
You look at the move and think “it must be a blunder.” You even know how to take advantage of it. Often, things are not as simple as they seem at first glance.
In fact, some of those “mistakes” are not mistakes at all, but tricky moves. If you don’t understand the position well enough you may buy into it, ruining your game.
What should you do about it?
Make good decisions – win more games!
By incorrectly interpreting your opponent’s move as a mistake you will make a mistake yourself the very next move!
In the first part of this video course, top American Grandmaster Alex Lenderman teaches you not to assume that your opponent’s move is a mistake, until absolutely sure. GM Lenderman provides many illustrative examples demonstrating this important concept.
He shares his own personal thinking methods which help him to precisely identify dangerous moments in a game and resolve them in his favor.
Grandmaster Secrets – Practical Play with GM Alex Lenderman
One of the major mistakes over 95% of club players make is working on different aspects of the game independently but never learning to utilize them all together.
Club players learn chess openings, middlegames, and endings separately, but never see those elements working hand-in-hand. Grandmasters, on the other hand, know how to employ all those to create a masterful win.
Everything is interconnected and one stage serves as a continuation of the other – in full harmony.
That’s why you get that feeling of “effortlessness” after observing a GM game. Grandmasters have many “secrets” of practical (aka effective) play that they use for achieving those effortless wins.
This is something very important for any chess player, but unfortunately next to impossible to master on your own.
Or at least it was the case until today…
To help you learn how GMs work during the tournaments and apply their knowledge ChessLessons did something quite extraordinary. They set up a 20-game Blitz Match at Columbia University between the former Youth World Blitz Champion GM Maxim Dlugy, and GM Alexandr Lenderman.
