Have you already succeeded at mastering all the aspects of <strong>basic chess strategy</strong>?

Many players seem to get stuck at a certain level, no matter how hard they train.

It’s like there’s an invisible barrier preventing them from reaching 1600, 1800 or 2000 Elo.

<em>It doesn’t have to be this way.</em>

IM Anna Rudolf (aka Miss Strategy) has found the solution. Instead of cramming your brain with endless amounts of new knowledge,<strong> we need to fix the 5 holes through which valuable rating points are always leaking</strong>.

Blunders, missing winning opportunities, failing to identify the strongest plan, underestimating your opponent’s strategy and fear/complacency. These are the real barriers holding you back.

The 15 hour Anna Rudolf Method teaches you how to solve these problems and achieve your potential by becoming a master of awareness, emotions and targeting weaknesses.

<h2><span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;">About the Author</span></h2>

<h2><span style="font-family: arial black, sans-serif;">Is this course for me?</span></h2>
<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;">If you are a beginner player:</span>

These basic chess strategy lessons by Anna Rudolf will help you learn how to choose opening systems that fit your style and build an effective opening repertoire. You'll also learn what to in case that you have to play a position that's completely unknown to you.

You'll also be able to learn what's needed for you to become a master of planning and also improve your strategic thinking process when playing chess.

These lessons will teach you how to always look to improve your pieces and worsen the opponent's pieces with every move.

Anna has put a TON of work and research into discovering the 5 biggest barriers stopping most players reaching 2000 Elo and beyond. The Anna Rudolf Method then tells you how to turn these often undiagnosed weaknesses into game-winning strengths.

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;">1. Banish blunders:</span>

Blunders are the #1 rating killers. Whether you’re dropping pieces or overlooking positional mistakes, the root cause of blunders is the same. Anna reveals her technique for keeping total awareness at all times!

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;">2. Take your chances:</span>

Finding winning moves is much tougher in a real game than when solving tactics. Any would-be helper standing by your board shouting “Mate in 3!” would get kicked out! Discover how to search and destroy your target at the first opportunity.

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;">3. Proven winning plans:</span>

When you’re thinking what to play, the moves you see are affected by your plan. If you’re thinking about how to attack the kingside, you’ll probably miss the winning pawn break on the queenside.

Anna explains the ideas behind the most powerful attacking formations, positional strategies and endgame plans to make sure you’re always focused on the strongest moves.

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;">4. One step ahead:</span>

If you’re thinking about what you’re trying to achieve and ignoring your opponent’s plans, you’re going to get a nasty shock. Instead, learn how to read your rival’s plans and use it against them!

<span style="font-family: 'arial black', sans-serif;">5. Competitive success:</span>

It’s no good being a great chess player if you fall apart when it counts. A huge percentage of games are lost due to either complacency or irrational fear. Learn how to combine a burning desire to win with ice cool compsure to become the ultimate competitor.

Nice little easy course, yet again video quality is very poor

The course is easy and fun to follow with good ideas, the problem is that as with the other courses I purchased the video quality is so incredibly poor that it really makes hard to look at and less professional. Don't think I'll be spending any more until maybe they work on their videos quality.

Excellent - Anna is amazing

Easy to follow. Great chess mentor. I recommend purchasing from chess players you like (see some interviews with the course instructor), that was my case with this course. The course is not monotonous, Anna brings life to the course. In terms of content, there is a good balance between opening, middle-game and endgame. Just for clarification, I don't think this course is for someone just starting to play chess, some of the terms she uses such positional play or dynamic play requires the student to know the basics and have some exposure to chess books or video lessons. In summary: The way Anna presents the course is amazing, you wont get bored, the content is well balanced and well explained. Excellent material.

Overview

Basic Chess Strategy: Smash The Barriers with The Anna Rudolf Method – Master Method Series #20

The Anna Rudolf Method – Smash The Barriers To Your Chess Success!
Basic Chess Strategy Lessons – The Anna Rudolf Method

Have you already succeeded at mastering all the aspects of basic chess strategy?

Many players seem to get stuck at a certain level, no matter how hard they train.

It’s like there’s an invisible barrier preventing them from reaching 1600, 1800 or 2000 Elo.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

IM Anna Rudolf (aka Miss Strategy) has found the solution. Instead of cramming your brain with endless amounts of new knowledge, we need to fix the 5 holes through which valuable rating points are always leaking.

Blunders, missing winning opportunities, failing to identify the strongest plan, underestimating your opponent’s strategy and fear/complacency. These are the real barriers holding you back.

The 15 hour Anna Rudolf Method teaches you how to solve these problems and achieve your potential by becoming a master of awareness, emotions and targeting weaknesses.

About the Author

Anna Rudolf is an Olympic Chess-Player and three-time Hungarian Champion currently rated 2325 Elo. She has been able to accomplish the titles of International Master and Woman Grand Master.

She recorded her first video series in 2013 and since then, she has established herself as an acclaimed chess commentator, events streamer, and chess reporter.

Anna has participated as a commenter in many world-class events including the World Chess Rapid and Blitz Championships in Doha, the Paris and Leuven legs of the Grand Chess Tour, the 2016 Candidates Tournament and the 42nd Chess Olympiad in Baku.

Is this course for me?

If you are a beginner player:

These basic chess strategy lessons by Anna Rudolf will help you learn how to choose opening systems that fit your style and build an effective opening repertoire. You’ll also learn what to in case that you have to play a position that’s completely unknown to you.

You’ll also be able to learn what’s needed for you to become a master of planning and also improve your strategic thinking process when playing chess.

These lessons will teach you how to always look to improve your pieces and worsen the opponent’s pieces with every move.

Anna has put a TON of work and research into discovering the 5 biggest barriers stopping most players reaching 2000 Elo and beyond. The Anna Rudolf Method then tells you how to turn these often undiagnosed weaknesses into game-winning strengths.

1. Banish blunders:

Blunders are the #1 rating killers. Whether you’re dropping pieces or overlooking positional mistakes, the root cause of blunders is the same. Anna reveals her technique for keeping total awareness at all times!

2. Take your chances:

Finding winning moves is much tougher in a real game than when solving tactics. Any would-be helper standing by your board shouting “Mate in 3!” would get kicked out! Discover how to search and destroy your target at the first opportunity.

3. Proven winning plans:

When you’re thinking what to play, the moves you see are affected by your plan. If you’re thinking about how to attack the kingside, you’ll probably miss the winning pawn break on the queenside.

Anna explains the ideas behind the most powerful attacking formations, positional strategies and endgame plans to make sure you’re always focused on the strongest moves.

4. One step ahead:

If you’re thinking about what you’re trying to achieve and ignoring your opponent’s plans, you’re going to get a nasty shock. Instead, learn how to read your rival’s plans and use it against them!

5. Competitive success:

It’s no good being a great chess player if you fall apart when it counts. A huge percentage of games are lost due to either complacency or irrational fear. Learn how to combine a burning desire to win with ice cool compsure to become the ultimate competitor.

Enjoy your course!
