Evaluation and Strategy Product Image

At the higher levels, games are won by the player who can identify the critical factor in a position and make proper use of it.

In this near 4-hour course, Dutch International Master Robert Ris teaches you that ability.

Chess is a complicated game – you don’t want it to be easy, you want to be good.

IM Ris shows you how to get to the absolute essence of the position, ignoring all the tempting but inferior plans that compete for your attention.

Once you know what to do, it’s a question of executing your plan. Of overcoming your opponents’ strongest resistance.

This course trains you to a high level in skills like prophylaxis, dominating with the bishop-pair, and targeting weaknesses. All explained with IM Ris’ trademark clarity.

Study this material and master the advanced skills that will win you games for the rest of your playing days.
