How can this product help me?
Karpov was once asked what the difference between the World Champion and the other elite players was. He replied that they were very close in strength, but the World Champion was usually 1% better than his rivals in most areas of the game.
The sum of all these small edges became decisive.
Now, this exclusive chess training program by our friends at The Chess World will help you improve on the 5 most important skills to develop a Grandmaster Chess Strategy: openings, prophylaxis, middlegame mastery, attacking play and endgame strategy.
Here’s part of what you’ll get:
In this video, England’s top grandmaster Daniel Gormally, a calculation expert, shares the insider’s secrets of how one should proceed about calculating variations in the most complicated positions that often arise over-the-board.
GM Gormally breaks down the entire calculation process into a few simple bites that virtually anyone can understand and master.
GM Gormally does a superb job explaining in great detail, backing up with Grandmaster chess examples, how one should proceed about calculating the moves.
Positional sacrifice is a very delicate, yet very powerful technique that most advanced chess players perform. Some of the greatest chess minds in the history of the game employed the positional sacrifice as the weapon of choice to win tournaments, matches, and even World Championship titles.
Number one chess player and the reigning World Champion Magnus Carlsen is no exception. He proves over and over again, against the toughest competition that the positional sacrifice is something that can blow up an otherwise equally looking position and score a crucial win.
The amateur players typically DO NOT understand the relative value of chess pieces well enough and prefer to simply keep the material.
In this 3-hour long video course, GM Sipke Ernst, a strong attacking player himself, will teach you the art of attacking chess. He goes in great detail analyzing the attacking techniques that players such as Magnus Carlsen, Vishy Anand, Mikhail Tal, Sergey Karjakin, Boris Spassky, and Veselin Topalov have successfully used to win games.
GM Ernst will show exactly how Grandmasters think in complex, razor-sharp positions when everything depends on a single move. In such positions, any little inaccuracy can cause a defeat.
It’s like walking on the minefield, along with your opponent, and waiting for someone to make a single wrong step.
The good news is that after going over this course you will have a map in your mind that will guide you through the labyrinth of move choices reducing the possibility of mistakes. That’s something your opponent may not have.
International Master Valeri Lilov assumes you know nothing about the game. And I mean NOTHING. He teaches you everything you need to know for becoming a club strength player from the ground up in the most efficient way.
Indeed, that won’t happen overnight, and you will need to play practice games, do homework and so on. Trust me; this is by far the quickest shortcut you can take to go from absolute zero to club player strength!
IM Lilov starts with the most basic things and dives into advanced stuff when you’re ready.
Others spend months if not years learning those things the hard way… we give you a complete course covering it all in just 10 hours of video!
Chess openings are the foundation of every game. If you are behind in development, with your king stuck in the center and under attack… chances are you won’t be able to demonstrate your superior middlegame or superb endgame skills.
You got to know the openings you play.
The problem is…
Many video courses and chess opening theory books only CONFUSE you with the abundance of information. They give you all the possible responses to opening lines, hundreds of variations and sub-lines making it nearly impossible for a club player to digest and even less likely to apply it.
“The more, the better” principle is clearly NOT something you need in order to master your openings.
GM Petrov gives you a complete repertoire for beating the most popular Black responses to 1.e4, the move described as “best by test” by Bobby Fischer. 10 hours training on easy-to-remember but powerful e4 openings.
Middlegame masterclass with IM Paschall is a 10-hour video course covering “everything middlegame” for under 2200 rated player must know.
It allows players to get an instant edge in the middlegame by following the correct plan, precisely utilizing the fundamental principles of the game and making sound decisions.
Even when the positions are complex and unclear it is possible to break it down into the easy-to-understand parts and proceed with the strongest continuation [don’t worry, you will learn how].
We will start learning the static concepts and work our way to the dynamic ones. In the first several chapters we will start with pawn structure, then continue with strategic concepts laid out by Nimzowitsch, and then proceed with coordination of pieces and pawns, space advantage, exchanges, king’s safety and so on.
Prophylactic thinking is the habit of constantly asking yourself “what does my opponent want to do?” and the ability to find a good reply that prevents the opponent from carrying out that plan.
Right now, there are thousands of chess players out there who have no idea how much they are being held BACK by having poor prophylactic skills.
It’s sad but true. Think about it this way:
Chess prophylaxis is the art & science of preventing your opponents’ threats.
It is a fundamental skill that is equally important regardless of the level you’re at. Prophylaxis is like dribbling in basketball. If you play the game, it is essential that you know how to dribble!
From stopping your opponent’s tactical ideas to cutting off his positional play, prophylaxis plays a HUGE role in every single move!
In this 10-hour masterclass, IM Alex Battey shares his blueprint for launching powerful attacks with maximum ease and near perfect execution!
You DON’T need to be a chess genius or have a photographic memory to use those. You also don’t need to spend 8 hours a day on training.
Once you get a hang of it, you’ll feel like the attacks are happening on autopilot!
Here’s what you will learn with this course:How to identify and use the “Focal Points” in your attack – all great players know that focusing your forces into a single point creates an immensely powerful attack which is very difficult to counter for your opponent.
The mating nets – done right – How to save your time and energy over the board while setting up the traps that will do the work for you!
So your opponent has survived this far? Make sure you get the point you deserve with IM Kolosovski’s 10-hour training on converting the most common endgames.
Nearly 50 hours of GM/IM coaching on the skills that win games, all at a huge discount until Sunday night.
Besides all of the above, you also get a ton of bonus material too, including annotated PGNs, live blitz videos and access to the online practical section.
As you can probably guess from the title, this course examines attack and defense in chess at the same time – they are, after all, 2 sides of the same coin.
By showing how some threats can be defended – and how to counter those ideas – GM Marian Petrov builds up the sophistication of your attacks into laser-accurate combinations.
This is a complete masterclass divided into two sections. The first section trains you in attacking the king — no matter where he is located… in the center, the kingside, queenside, opposite side…no matter where — there’s an attacking plan for smashing through to checkmate him!
The second half of this course is dedicated to training you to defend against such attacks… You’ll be able to identify threats from far away and stop them in their tracks.
You’ll get access to a FULL and dangerous opening repertoire for white, with 10 hours of strong ideas against all black responses from the Sicilian and French, to the Caro Kann and 1…e5 — nothing black tries will come as a surprise and you’ll ALWAYS emerge with an edge!
This is not a “theoretical course” but a purely practical guide on how to use this chess opening preparation to win games.
It is developed with practical chess players in mind, who want to spend the minimum time studying the opening ideas yet aim to get maximum RESULTS from applying it to win games.
You will learn how to play the highest quality moves against any under-2200 rated opponent in the least possible time.
This is your 10.5-hour guide to queen’s pawn MASTERY. No matter which side of the board you’re on, you’ll be knowledgeable in the theory, plans, pawn structures and attacking plans…of EVERY 1.d4 opening.
Whether it’s the King’s Indian, Queen’s Gambit, Dutch or anything in between… GM Marian Petrov covers them in a crystal clear way that only a professional trainer can!
You will know exactly how to play against and beat players in the 10 most widely played openings after 1.d4: London System, Queen’s Gambit Accepted, Queen’s Gambit Declined, Slav Defense, Benoni Defense, Kings Indian Defense, Nimzo Indian Defense, Grunfeld Defense, Dutch Defense, Tarrasch and Chigorin Defense!
You’ll get access to a 7-hour course covering all of the strategic imbalances in chess. In 14 chapters, GM Petrov teaches you themes like pawn structure, the bishop pair, attacking the king, dominating open files — and he even gives you a basic opening repertoire for BOTH black and white.
GM Petrov takes a very different perspective on improving your positional understanding. Instead of taking a usual route of learning “moves” and “lines”, he teaches “positions” and “patterns“.
This approach is proven to work for many of GM Petrov’s private students. It gives you a clear understanding of when to attack, defend or go into an endgame. This kind of thinking is the key difference between 1400 and 2500 rated players.
Enjoy this awesome package!
