Calculation Mastermind with IM Mat Kolosowski
The 11 tried and tested techniques for flawless calculation and finding the best moves quickly… in any position.
You’ve probably heard the famous saying “chess is 99% tactics”.
Well, it’s wrong.
Chess is 99% calculation.
When you want to know if multiple exchanges in the center will give you more space, you calculate.
Wondering what your opponent might be up to? You consider moves and calculate.
It’s no exaggeration to say that your chess strength relies on how good your calculation is.
Improve your calculation and you will transform as a player, finding stronger moves on every turn.
And, no matter if your goal is to hit 1800 or 2200, IM Mat Kolosowski can help.
In his Calculation Mastermind course, Mat has drawn on decades of chess ideas to teach you the QUICKEST and most EFFECTIVE methods for finding strong moves in any position.
Practical Endgame Mastery with IM Mat Kolosowski
This 10-hour masterclass on endgame technique teaches you everything you need to guarantee you get the win – and the rating points and tournament prizes that come with it. These are ideas that, once learned, will win you points game after game for the rest of your life. Techniques to play top-notch chess endgames that never change and always work.
Because sooner or later you’re going to play a critical game. Hours of great middlegame play has landed you in a winning queen versus rook endgame.
But your resilient rival isn’t giving up… They keep that rook close and hide their king behind it whenever your queen attacks.
There is a winning method.
Whether you find it, win that game, tournament, prize money and glory depends on what you do now…
Mastering The Center in Chess with IM Mat Kolosowski
IM Kolosowski has taken these advanced concepts and presented them in a way that any ambitious player will be able to understand and use.
Every chess player knows the CENTER is critical… but most just stick a pawn on d4 or e4, drop a knight on f3 and start attacking.
And they wonder why it doesn’t work…
However, their bad habit is your golden ticket…
Learn the secrets of advanced central control and you will:
- Enjoy hyperactive pieces that dominate every key square, paralyzing your rival’s play.
- Be able to lock or open the center when it favors you, leaving your opponent scrambling to react.
- Know which flank to attack and where to place your pieces for the best chance of success.
- Find deep strategic ideas that give you a winning endgame – if your opponent lasts that long!
Very few club players really understand all there is to know about the center in chess… now YOU can be one of them.
Defense Mastery with IM Mat Kolosowski
A good defense is something that wins games, tournaments, and even World Championship Matches. Despite that fact, however, if you ask most chess players their responses are typically less enthusiastic… “Defense is boring” is something we hear all too often.
Say what you will about defense, but the fact is…
There is nothing boring about quickly adding a couple of hundred rating points without having to play any harder! Typical club players may think that playing defense is boring while stronger players know better.
Strong players know that, when played properly, there is a no faster, easier or more efficient way to achieve consistent results in your games!
But how do you do it the right way? And also:
- How do you spot the moment when you need to start defending?
- How do you use all your resources including the ones most players don’t know even existed?
- What type of defense should you use to maximize your chances? (Hint: you will learn the common themes and patterns to give you a clue.)
- How do you avoid the “illusion of activity”? (This is a very deadly trap many defenders step into.)
- What is a fortress and how do you construct one to maximize your fighting chance?
- How do you effectively sacrifice material to get promising passers and recognize stalemate ideas?
- How do you surprise and annoy your opponent with unexpected complications?
- When do you know it is time to give up material for activity? (A general rule of a thumb.)
- What is the prophylaxis theory and why is it better to invest time into it than to defend?
These are just some of the questions that every chess player must be able to answer.
Working on these critical steps will make sure you don’t give up any of your “lost” positions without putting up a real fight and make it extremely difficult for your opponent to convert their advantage.

Planning Masterclass with IM Mat Kolosowski

IM Kolosowski combines two decades of his own experience with the wisdom of his coaches and some of the strongest players to deliver one of the most complete, and up to date courses on Planning.
Many club players fall short when it comes to planning – they don’t have an overall idea and simply trust their gut. By having no concrete objective, they simply push pieces and assume that things would work out… chess players who base their play on assumptions get disappointed the most.
That’s not the way to go… Especially if you want to win games.
The best approach is to have a planned and well-calculated victory – and in this course IM Koloswoski teaches this crucial skill.
Strategic Endgame Mastery with IM Mat Kolosowski
Have you ever met a player who is very strong in the endgame, but not so good overall? I haven’t.
Is that a coincidence? I don’t think so, and there is one very good reason for that.
Without a solid understanding of how pieces work together on the most fundamental level, you can’t play the middlegame or an opening to their FULL CAPACITY.
How do you acquire that skill set?
The short answer is by studying the ENDGAMES.
The problem is most club players focus solely on theoretical endgames. These are the positions from that 800+ page endgame manual which require A LOT of memorization.
That means you need a truckload of time.
Even after memorizing those lines, there is no guarantee you’ll retain the information and recall it when it arises in one of your games. And the worst part – what if it is slightly different from what you’ve learned in the book? Then you’re officially stuck.
I know it sounds awful. That’s why I want to show you a much better way.

Planning and Strategic Decision-Making are two very important elements of the game. Do you ask what that has to do with the Pawn Structures?
