Attacking Chess System with IM Alex Ostrovskiy and IM Arthur Shen
Attacking chess is something that all players want to perfect. It makes a lot of sense because at the end of the day, delivering checkmate is the ultimate goal of the game.
Surprisingly, not many chess players spend time working on their attacking skills. They work on solving tactics, studying openings and drilling endgames but not on “how to attack your opponent to win games.” It sounds strange, but it is very true for most club players.
This course provides a powerful toolkit on how to conduct strong and vicious attacks against opponents of any level. We are very delighted to finally bring you a universal system of attack that helped IM Alex Ostrovskiy and IM Arthur Shen to beat many strong opponents.
You probably know that maneuvering and positional chess has many rules and principles. There are rules on how to play against an isolated pawn, how to convert advantages, how to play against the king in the center, and the list goes on and on.
Attacking chess has its own rules…
Throughout this course, IM Alex Ostrovskiy and IM Arthur Shen will make you familiar with those rules. You will learn how to follow them, how to determine whether the position calls for an attack and how to conclude an attack in the best possible way. This will make a huge difference in your game.
