This course is very good value

This course is very good value for 30 hours of coaching by Valeri. He is a really good teacher, easy to follow and he goes into enough detail to explain the concepts he is talking about. This course is aimed at intermediate players wanting to take their skills to an advanced level. In his Master Method course he covers a huge number of topics. For example, in the ones on the opening he looks at issues such as opening initiative, punishing poor development, exploiting opening mistakes, opening weaknesses, the ideas behind the opening, what position the players are trying to achieve by playing it e.g. centre control, gaining space, quick development etc. He then gives his thoughts on a few openings that he recommends and why. With 30 hours of training there is a wide range of other topics that are covered including attacking, coordination, space, piece activity, weaknesses and many more. I would say that this course covers many of the fundamentals of chess thinking that combine in effective decision-making, and I have been able to improve my game by applying the teaching that Valeri gives. I have many of his training videos and he never fails to deliver.
